Brian McCann and Carlos Gomez looked like enemies last season. Their beef apparently hasn’t lingered into 2014. McCann (then with the Atlanta Braves) got in Gomez’s face between third base and home plate in a game last season after the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder admired a home run at Turner Field. The incident kicked off a bench-clearing brawl between the two teams, but it actually didn’t create a life-long rivalry between McCann and Gomez. “I respect the guy,” McCann (now with the Yankees) recently told NJ.com. “I respect the way he plays. I think he plays hard every single night. I’m way over that.” Gomez, who apologized shortly after last season’s incident, reportedly expressed similar sentiments, so it’s time to close the book on this one, although the animosity was fun while it lasted. Carlos Gomez & Brian McCann just met on the field, hugged it out. No animosity from last year's confrontation, Gomez said.— Adam McCalvy (@AdamMcCalvy) May 09, 2014 Asked Brian McCann this week if he thought Carlos Gomez incident was behind them, he said "100 percent...I respect him."— Sweeny Murti (@YankeesWFAN) May 09, 2014 Photo via Twitter/@JakeCossartFiled under: MLB, New York Yankees, Ricky Doyle, Top Stories
