    Wally thinks it is ridiculous to think he hit him on purpose. He was pitching inside

    All Pirates reporters are saying this "isn't over" and "Cutch" is "pissed."

    Good point. Don't think Votto would've made that kind of mistake.

    Funny you should say that, I was just thinking Chapman had some Bob Gibson in him.

    "Pirate" fans (LOL) can zip it and put their Big Ben jerseys back on.

    The purpose of a brushback pitch is to, you know, try to move the hitter off the plate.

    If you are going to throw a 102 MPH fastball to Andrew McCutchen in that situation you are asking for trouble. I am not asking him to throw 85 MPH, but don't you think 94 would've sent enough of a message. If you are going to mess around with 102 MPH fastballs inside, you better be able to locate it.

    Why did he have to move McCutchen off the plate with 2 outs in the ninth and a 3-0 lead? He should've just pitched McCutchen like any other hitter and just get out of the game with the save. I am sure the Reds hitters are going to appreciate it when one of them is hit by a pitch tomorrow.

    The Reds players are not shrinking violets. If one gets hit in retaliation...thanks for the free base.

    Re: Pirates fans are livid

    My hope is that the Pirate starter, in "protecting" their star, hits a Red in retaliation. The ump then will throw said pitcher out of the game, and the 'Rats will play Johnny All-Staff, costing them the game and a worn-out 'pen for the next night.

    This could all be undone, however, if the Pittsburgh is looking for the Reds' star player. Because, y'know, he's not on the field. (Nor is the second-best Red, for that matter.)

    Biggest game of the year and the Reds would intentionally want to put runners on in the 9th inning? Riiiight.

    Seems reality has escaped Pittsburgh for far too long.
    All six of the Pirates fans are mad?

    Hilarious. Chapman was so phased that he blew Jones away on three 100+ pitches that he never saw, much less had a chance of hitting.

    FWIW, I think BP is starting tomorrow.

    My thoughts on Garrett Jones are similar to Tommy Lasorda's view of Kurt Bevacqua.
