    PIT has a right to be mad, we have a right to feel like it was nothing, it is just the way it works, and I will be shocked if I do not see some retaliation tonight. It is fair.

    I'm just hoping if/when they do retaliate, we don't charge the mound. The last thing we need right now is any suspensions, or Votto and BP slugging it out while injured.

    This.


    While I don't think hitting Cutch was intentional, I get where he's coming from. IMO, one of our guys will get plunked tonight and we all move on. I don't mind a rivalry being rekindled. Good for the fans, players and sport.

    Players on the DL are automatically suspended if they enter the field during an altercation. Russ Springer was suspended for the Reds in 2010 following the fight with St. Louis.

    Thanks for the heads up, didn't know that. Let's really hope Votto knows that rule! Lol.

    PS I would just like to add, that after seven years, and 3,606 posts on Redszone, I've finally decided to go with an avatar. What took me so long? Good question.

    Great...now how about a signature?
    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

    Just exactly why was there a need to brush back McCutchon when there's two outs in the ninth, leading by 3 runs? There wasn't.
    Sorry. I have to disagree. How many times have we seen Chapman overthrow his fastball and miss really high our outside. He doesn't have pinpoint control.

    McCutchen stands close to the plate, Hanigan set up inside and the pitch was in a little too much. Good hitters get pitched inside. That's why Votto gets hit or brushed back. It's baseball, and a HBP there makes no sense. It's only a 3-0 lead, and why wake a team that was sleepwalking all night.

    I don't blame McCutchen for being mad, though. That's got to hurt. He should be more upset for being a spectator on Heisey's inside-the-park HR.

    JoJo thinks somebody on MLB.com is livid about something anytime someone wants to find someone livid about something.

    JoJo is glad for redszone.

    And a nice one at that. Question - is that flag actually in Barry's hat or does it just look like it?

    Re: Pirates fans are livid

    So McCutcheon says this is going to fire the Pirates up?

    They're having their best season in years, are playing well, and they're playing the first-place team they've been chasing all summer and THIS is now going to fire them up?

    OK, then. Go back in your irrelevant hole soon Pirates.

    I'm not real keen on the "Cutch" nickname, esp. on a Reds fan board, but that might just be my pet peeve.
