Seems Morgan was right in his protest. Seems it would of been nice if Morgn would of threw chew in the pitchers face!
Carpenter told two St. Louis reporters he "didn't want to come across as a liar" and admitted that he told Morgan to "(bleep) off" after striking him out on the 10th pitch of that at-bat. Carpenter told the reporters he had seen the coverage of the altercation and didn't want to be portrayed as having "denied" cursing Morgan before turning his back to him on the mound.
So Morgan was right in what he did.
