Mariners clubhouse fight was between Dee Gordon, Jean Segura

13 Comments

Last night we heard that, before the Orioles-Mariners game, there was a fight in the Mariners clubhouse. At the time all we knew was that Mariners center fielder Dee Gordon had asked reporters to leave, after which there was yelling and the sounds of pushing and shoving and a lot of commotion.

Late last night after the game — which the Mariners lost — Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reported that the fight was between Gordon and Mariners shortstop Jean Segura. The flashpoint: Gordon missing an easy pop fly in the previous night’s game. Why that led to a fight when the (a) the error ended up being meaningless, as the guy who reached on it did not score; and (b) the Mariners won the game is beyond me, but when you’re coming upon seven months of sharing close quarters and your season is slipping away I suppose anything can set off a fracas.

For what it’s worth, manager Scott Servais and everyone on the Mariners is playing the “what happens in the clubhouse stays in the clubhouse” card, and is saying that it’s all behind them, so we’ll likely never know why this particular error turned into a fight.

Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
