Cubs Dugout Brawl

The Cubs were getting into some pre-season action, just the wrong kind of action. Cubs P Carlos Silva gave up six runs in an inning and on his return to the dugout, a skirmish broke out between him and 3B Aramis Ramirez. Silva escaped on a cart without comment. Read the byline, courtesy thebiglead.com.

“Silva watched the Cubs commtt three errors, and served up two home runs in the six-run first. Silva was out of the inning with a double play grounder, trailing 4-0, but a catchers interference call on Koyie Hill prolonged it, and have gave up two more runs. Silva was angry coming into the dugout, and apparently some words were exchanged with someone else in the dugout. Players scrambled to break it up, and Silva was removed from the game the next inning.”

“You look him right in the eye and say, ‘Look …’ ” Quade said. “As I kind of said yesterday, I don’t know, sometimes a little revolt is not bad. I’m glad people were ticked off. We need to channel that anger at the opposition, and within ourselves, and handle it the way we need to handle it. I think we put that to bed. As far as I’m concerned, we did.”

Quade said he was not aware if the two players have shaken hands, and said no apologies are necessary.

“In these four games, there’s been plenty of blame to go around,” he said. “The fact that it wound up with a couple of veterans being ticked off, that’s even better than kids. I was looking for no apologies, but an understanding these situations must be handled differently.”
