    The fans are taking their cue from Cushion,he obviously acted if he thought it was intentional,whether he did or not.

He sees us coming, wearing Reds gear, and he stops his song and starts jawing at us about the Reds losing. I look up and just say, "Still in first place."

    His response: "How many Superbowls you won?"
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    That's any fanbase though. If Votto was hit like this, I guarantee this board would've been up in arms.

    I enjoy it. This rivalry matters again. It's pretty cool .

    I don't think McCutchen cares if Chapman hit him intentionally or not. He is a leader of that team, and he is trying to fire them up before they are down 2-0, or even get swept. They had won 8 out of the previous 10 games here and I am pretty sure they felt high and mighty coming into this series. Maybe it is reckless to use something like that as motivation. It probably is if it evolves into a beanball war and fist fights moving forward. So, I am certainly not defending it. But, I can see where he is coming from.

    I'm not big on purposeful plunkings, but now I think the Reds should issue a preemptive strike in the first inning tonight to beat Pittsburgh to the punch and draw a warning to both benches so they can't retaliate without being ejected.

    Agreed. He hit him in the back of the shoulder, they were shut-out, I suspect they'll be tough to beat tonight. Hurt pride and all...

    Anyway, he's their Votto. How would we react?
    Votto got plunked in a similar situation earlier in the year, I believe the Reds were down, it was slightly fishy, Votto glared, a few folks expressed indignation, and then the game went on.

    Is that like a bee stinging after a shark bite?

    Broxton should be in the dugout until the 6th inning

    Re: Pirates fans are livid

    I'm convinced that it was not intentional:

    A. Because Chapman has thrown other 100 MPH pitches in the dirt or over the catcher's head.

    B. Because if the next batter gets on base, it would bring the tying run to the plate.
