    And this thread contains the suggestion that Leake goes out and make a pre-emptive strike by hitting Andrew again. Fans will be fans. They are not always rational but, as much as we like to pretend, they are not much different from city to city.

    Yes, fans will be fans. But that comment about hitting McCutcheon was funny stuff, and I took it as being sarcastic. There were other funny posts about how much it would "hurt" to be hit by a Leake "fastball."

    In reality You don't do a preemptive strike, because when we go to Pittsburgh, payback would be warranted. It quickly gets dangerous. I suspect McDonald will hit a Red in the first, likely BP, both benches will be warned, and that should be the end of it.

    I wasn't really being serious when I made that suggestion, by the way. It was nothing more than a little humor about the whole thing. I apologize if you didn't receive the humor intended, but it wasn't a serious suggestion.

    You can understand McCutcheon's frustration. On a number of levels. Beat them 10-0 tonight and I am sure he'll be in an even worse mood.

    Yep, I could care less who wins the battle of knockdown pitches. Just win the baseball game.

    I'm guessing Phillips takes one to the back in the first.

    I hope not. We need him to stay on the field. He was absolutely raking here lately and has had to sit the last 3 games.

    If that happens, I hope we get a good fight out of it (sue me, I find a good baseball fight entertaining), or at least another payback pitch. Chappy's wasn't intentional. I don't care if we're at an even 1-for-1 or not, there should be retribution if that happens. Or maybe its just wishful thinking.... I love a good heated rivalry.

    I don't think anyone is proud of the Pirates.

    Ahh, give 'em a break. They haven't had MLB in Pittsburgh for so long that they forgot the rules.

    (Honestly, I'd probably be upset too. But that's just baseball.)

    Pittsburgh would be great if it wasn't for the winters and all the Steeler fans. It sucks.

    I enjoyed my time in Pittsburgh too, it's nice to be able to hit a Jazz club from time to time.

    I try to remember this when I see a car (here in CA) with Steeler plates. Ugh, just want to hit them

    Sigh. The posts in this thread with the racial undertones are highly disappointing.

    Really? Haven't noticed anything of the sort.

    A Cuban plunked a black dude. This is a racial situation now?
