Last night, the Cincinnati Reds’ pitchers threw at the Pirates. The Pirates did nothing about it. TYPICAL.
The Reds intimidate the Pirates EVERY TIME. The Reds bully the Pirates EVERY TIME.
The Pirates need to do something about it.
Either that, or stock up on Maxi Pads.
Andrew McCutchen got hit. That’s happened twice against Cincinnati this season, three times in the last two years. Neil Walker got buzzed.
The Pirates pitchers didn’t retaliate. Nobody rushed the mound. The Pirates look like weak-kneed wimps.
The Reds’ bullying of the Pirates is preordained, and there’s a pattern. Baseball isn’t a blood-and-guts sport, but what the Reds do to the Pirates adds up.
Charlie Morton is the Pirates’ starting pitcher tonight. He needs to drill somebody.
Manager Clint Hurdle is supposed to be tough. But his Pirates are not a tough team.
These Pirates need the late Dock Ellis. Ellis was convinced the Reds were intimidating the Pirates in 1974. So he hit the first three Reds he faced and threw at the next two before being lifted. Point made.
