Details on the Manny and Youk feud

Finally found a snippet about the Manny and Youk family feud (courtesy of

According to three sources, 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.
You can't blame Youk for being passionate. He's what you'd call an "energy" guy in basketball. He brings a whole different level of intensity to the game and his team. Manny, on the other hand, is a quiet, laid back sort of player but has had times where he's flown off the handle. For the most part through, his bat speaks for him.

In the end, you can't blame either one of them for this spat. It would have been interesting to see who'd win that fight though. Manny seems like the stronger guy, but something tells me Youk is the sort of dude you'd want on your side in a bar fight.
