I know from that headline you have no idea which team Andrew McCutchen is on. He's apparently attempting to play for as many teams as he can before he calls it a career.
McCutchen is currently a member of the Brewers. From what I gather there were several Cubs hitters (at least three) hit with pitches and McCutchen was the unfortunate recipient of the retaliation.
Then everyone acted like an asshole and didn't do anything but stand around and yell at each other.

There's a couple of things here to unpack. There's been way too much of the bench clearing nonsense already this season. It's too early for everyone to be upset by every hit batter.
And secondly, we're going to need a new rule about the benches clearing. If you leave the bench and no punch is or has been thrown then you get ejected.
No more leaving the bench to yell at each other. We need punches thrown. Do your yelling from the dugout.
