Andrew McCutchen Re-Enacts Dodgers-Giants Brawl: The Dodgers and Giants brawled Tuesday night because catcher Nick Hundley didn't like batter Yasiel Puig engaging in introspective self-criticism after he fouled a pitch and Puig didn't like Hundley not liking it. Andrew McCutchen arrived late to the fracas from the outfield. He explains why in this re-enactment.

A) Is this another one of old timey baseball's unwritten rules? That you are not allowed to be upset with yourself for wanting that pitch back?

2) McCutchen's video is hilarious. Especially comparing an outfielder's arrival time to a brawl with that of a kid's late arrival at a fun birthday party.

'Cutch is a damn treasure. Even when the Pirates and Reds were both competitive and had a bit of a 'rivalry' a few years back (was it really just back in '11 and '12?!), I found it very difficult not to cheer for 'Cutch when he wasn't playing Cincy.

He's too funny with his play by play on the "brawl".

If you're gonna have a brawl, it's always good to have guys named Panik and Belt involved.
