    First of all, it's not my comment and have said I personally don't agree with calling him the term based on how it's defined and what I know about him.

    That said, I think you need to get out a dictionary and actually see what the term means and consider that not everyone uses the term in the racial connotation. If someone thinks McCutchen is violent, then calling him a thug wouldn't be "inappropriate" regardless of race because that's what the word actually means.

    You can now refer to me as the Artist formerly known as Brutus the Pimp.

    First inning, second inning.... same thing right? Which player reads Redszone?

    Yeah that's hilarious how it worked out.

    And clearly the only reason Hurdle should be upset at the warnings is if they intended to plunk a Reds' batter sometime tonight.

    If they were livid last night, they must be totally indignant tonight.

    Marty and Brantley complained on the radio that the batter, I think it was Harrison, didn't even try and move out of the way of Leake's pitch that hit him. I agree.

    Cutch probably lost 2 games for them. He should have backed up LF last night and Heisey doesn't do the inside the park HR. I thought Cutch shoud have caught Rolen's triple tonight.

    Here's hoping Cutch does something tomorrow to help us win.

    to play the devils advocate...2 outs no one on. Best hitter in baseball up. 3 run lead. Left handed batter on deck who you then strike out in 3 pitches with pin point control. I can see why they could think it was done on purpose...just sayin.

    If the situation were reverse...and they hit Votto on the first pitch to get to Bruce who you waste in 3 pitches...I might think the same thing..

    You had me convinced until you had Bruce batting behind Votto. Come on, George, that cannot happen. EVER!
