McCann/Gomez An “Old School” Case?

Posted By Charles Mager On September 27, 2013 @ 2:49 PM In MLB | No Comments

Carlos Gomez [1]Dave O’Brien’s column [2] about the McCann-Gomez thing is kinda hilarious. It extolls Brian McCann‘s “old school” mentality of getting up in Gomez’s 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 wouldn’t have made it past first base because Jeff Bagwell would have started a fight with him.

Old school.

McCann was not upholding some grand tradition. He was just being a hothead.
