SJ - April 7, 2021
Cubs catcher Willson Contreras was hit with a pitch in the 9th inning of a 4-0 game. It was the second time in as many games that a Brewers pitcher hit him.
Contreras didn't waste a ton of time yelling at the pitcher. He had bigger things in mind like the entire Brewers dugout. After saying what he needed to the pitcher, he immediately turned his attention the the dugout.
The benches cleared and despite all of the emotion, no punches were thrown.
Willson Contreras better be a Cub for life. He’s a madman and it’s awesome. pic.twitter.com/4yAlnSQZNz

Cubs fans loved the move by Contreras, everyone else thought it was soft. I lean towards the move being soft. If you're going to call out an entire dugout then a punch must be thrown. Otherwise stop wasting everyone's time and take your base.
