Now, regarding the Reds becoming bullies: I think all great teams have swagger and some of them learn how to not appear like bullies. Believe me, I'm not a Yankee fan but "Yankee tradition" comes to mind. i think the Reds may vary here and there and vary as they learn their own way to kick butt and I think they will never be as aggressive as (for example) the '86 Mets.
Dusty sets a tone in this department - as does Joey.
And I'll say it again, Chapman was taking the inside of his plate back. I think it is cool the way this situation mirrors the '10 Reds and Cards. This series just got a lot better. Thanks Aroldis! (and I mean that!)
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
For those of you who haven't seen it ... here is McCutchen in the dugout after the game ...
(The language is a little blue at the end, not McCutchen, but whoever taped it)

For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.
If I was Aroldis, everytime I came in, my first pitch would be behind the batter, then I would rub my eyes and squint really hard for the next sign. Bet there'd be some dancing in the batter's box.
How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
