McCann/Gomez An "Old School" Case?
Dave OBriens column about the McCann-Gomez thing is kinda hilarious. It extolls Brian McCanns old school mentality of getting up in Gomezs face. He then added this:
I heard Billy Wagner interviewed on the radio today, and he was asked about what happened. Wagner said if it had happened when he played for the Astros, Gomez wouldnt have made it past first base because Jeff Bagwell would have started a fight with him.
McCann was not upholding some grand tradition. He was just being a hothead.
