The Cubs don’t think yesterday’s dustup was a big deal

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.”

Mike Quade:

“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.

    Any team Carlos Silva is on is a dysfunctional ballclub.
