The little fracas between Carlos Silva and Aramis Ramirez was just frustration at a bad, error-filled and dinger-filled inning, the Cubs said late yesterday. No biggie and they’re past it now. Aramis Ramirez:
“That was the only thing that happened, so it was obvious he was kind of upset … We talked about it, and everything’s cool.”
“I’d almost rather (have) that than complacency. There’s a point where this kind of thing goes overboard as well. But as frustrated as I was watching and everything else, you almost wonder ‘Is anyone going to say something besides me?'”
I guess I was wrong yesterday when I said they were in midseason form. If they were, this would have lasted much longer. It’s still spring training for dysfunctional ballclubs too. While they may be able to hold a grudge and make things ugly for an extended period in July, you have to expect much shorter performances in the early part of March.
