The Cause of Manny and Youk's Fight

Finally the real reason for the dugout fight from Extra Bases:

"Manny had raised objections to Youkilis throwing equipment around in the dugout after flying deep to center in the fourth inning, and advised him to "cut that (expletive) out. Youkilis apparently didn't take kindly to the remark, said something, and Manny swiped at him."

This seems like something that will blow over quickly, I don't foresee any long term problems in the clubhouse.

Youk does get pretty intense at times. Passionate, would be another word that comes to mind.

The problem with that passion is it gives off the impression that his individual at bats are more important than the outcome of the game. It is a selfish attitude that rubs many players the wrong way. Ironic though that the king of grandstanding is the one that objects. In any event, I agree, this will blow over quickly.
