Carlos Gomez apologizes for Braves fracas, Brett Anderson sums it up
Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez has accepted responsibility for the near-brawl in Atlanta on Wednesday night.
You'll recall that on Wednesday night, Carlos Gomez of the Brewers seemed to take rather intense delight in his home run off Braves lefty Paul Maholm, which led to Brian McCann's blocking Gomez's path to the plate in order to deliver a lecture, which led to a near-brawl.
Now, Gomez has, via Twitter, offered a pretty solid apology for his role in all of it:
The way I carried myself on the field is unacceptable, I should have done better to control myself and set a good example.— Carlos Gomez (@C_Gomez27) September 26, 2013
I would like to apologize first to the fans, MLB, my teammates and the Brewers organization as well as the Braves organization.— Carlos Gomez (@C_Gomez27) September 26, 2013
And speaking of Twitter reactions to what unfolded at Turner Field, here's Brett Anderson of the A's ...
