    Hughes/Navarro

    I don't post often, or really hardly ever, but I read the game threads almost every game as I watch. Anyway, the wife and I went out to eat tonight so I only caught the first 4 innings or so and had to keep up with the rest on my phone. As I got home I came back here to check the thread even though the game was over (as I said, I really enjoy them) and saw some posts and threads about this situation with Hughes and Navarro. Would anyone mind telling me exactly what happened?? Just curious. Go Reds!!

    Tapper to the pitcher by Navarro, Hughes ran the ball to 1B and Navarro caught up to him down the line, so instead of just tagging him, Hughes gave him a pretty good elbow and did this stupid tough guy strut back to the mound.

    From Reds fan standpoint, I loved Hughes classless push-- a sucker punch in the form of a forearm shivver. It showed that Reds have gotten into heads of Pirates and all Pirates can think about is cheap revenge against Reds instead of focusing on winning. I feel sorry for Pirates who seem fated to fail. They were a happy bunch a week ago. Now they are miserable team with miserable fans again.

    Ah, thanks. Yeah, I agree the Reds are into their heads a bit, which is good as I have thought another team has been in our heads a little too much in previous years. It is good to be on top and be the one everyone else can hate. It is always better that way.

    Fair point. If you go to MLB.com and watch the video of Hurdle being ejected, the Pittsburgh announcers are incensed that both benches were warned because it negated any opportunity for "retribution."

    My response was, seriously? Winning is a better retribution.

    I loved it. Hughes was the one running his mouth before the series about how they were coming here and winning. Loved seeing him get saddled with the 'L' tonight.

    Sweep tomorrow.

    FWIW, I didn't like the teams getting warnings after Harrison's HBP. However, Harrison's stupid reaction to the pitch basically forced the umpire's hand.

    I'm actually watching the last few innings now as they are replaying it. Cairo made a heck of a play to end the 8th. So I should see the play here in a minute anyway, but I'm going to enjoy Rolen's triple first.

    If you look up mouth breather in the dictionary there is a picture of him.

    If it was nothing I wouldn't have cussed at the tv for 30 seconds. It was completely a display of "more worried about being the tough guys and less about making the play and doing what it takes to win"

    I like how Hurdle handles these young teams and this us against the world mindset has done them well....but McCutchen was wrong (but understandable in the moment, but his anger should've been gone by 1st base)....Harrison's response was completely retarded, just clueless anger and Hughes IMO topped Harrison.

    A win today with the Pirates wanting to kick our tails so badly might just send them packing the rest of the way.....but I wouldn't count them out today.

    I think I'll watch.

    Agree. There was a little extra "umph" on it, but not a big deal. Hughes' body language after the play was actually worse than the actual bump.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    Re: Hughes/Navarro

    Hughes pitches every time out on the mound like he is mad at the world so he going back to the mound head bobbing is just him....McCutchen was right all the way for being unhappy for being hit intentionally on Friday night...Harrison took his a bit too personal on Saturday night.

    Good series overall and will be a crime if both teams are 2 of the 5 in the NL playoffs!
