If anybody sees a clip of McCutchen in the dugout afterwards, I'd love to see it. MLB cut the game off very quickly.
Geez, score some runs and you don't have to face Chapman in the 9th.
"I can't take this homerism anymore." - 10xWSChamps, August 11, 2010. A Cardinals fan having a problem with all the homerism on Redszone. Classic.
"Man do I miss the days where were didn't need a calculator and an encyclopedia of baseball metrics to enjoy a baseball game ... - MikeS21" - 8/2/12 game thread
That is, quite literally, the kind of pitch that Bob Gibson never hesitated to throw. Ever.
I wouldn't be, personally (unless it were a Tony LaRussa-managed Cardinals' team then I would for the sake of hating them).
I posted about this in tonight's game thread, but I'll say the same thing here. I don't think even for the slightest that Chapman was trying to hit Cutch... I even have doubts he was trying to brush him back... I think it was simply a fastball that got away from him.
I do believe that there will be some attempt at retribution in this series though, especially if Hanrahan comes in to pitch.
Hanrahan did that to the Reds in 2010 when Mike Leake hit Cutch with a changeup by hitting a Reds batter the very next inning... He may have even hit Mike Leake. At any rate, sometime this weekend I'd count on a Reds hitter getting nailed by a pitch.

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