Braves Pitching Coach Roger McDowell Potentially In Some Hot Water

Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell is potentially in some hot water after allegedly making some sexist remarks during a game against the Giants in San Francisco. The story is rife with tabloid sensationalism thanks to the complain against McDowell being filed by attorney Gloria Allred, and the story being first reported on TMZ. Read the TMZ piece here, and more from NBC Sports here

I heard the Braves announcers mention that the Giants fans were all over Brooks Conrad during that series, so the only speculation I would give here is that the Braves players and coaches may have had enough heckling. Remember that the bullpens at AT&T Park are on the field.

Seems like more a case of hurt feelings and publicity seeking than anything else. Though it could be an embarrassing situation for McDowell and the Braves. I'm not sure what to think of it, but I want to hear what McDowell has to say before I rush to any judgment.
