Alfredo Aceves and Dustin Pedroia had an argument Saturday night in the Red Sox dugout

Drama continues to surround this Red Sox team.

According to Sean McAdam of CSN New England, second baseman Dustin Pedroia and right-hander Alfredo Aceves got into a “heated argument” on Saturday in the visitors dugout at Oakland’s O.Co Coliseum. It was all verbal, but they eventually had to be separated by third base coach Jerry Royster.

McAdam got the inside scoop after the game:

According to a source, the argument was the result of Aceves attempting to direct the positioning of the infielders. Defensive positioning in the infield is the purview of Royster, who doubles as the team’s infield instructor.

The source added that Pedroia, angry over Aceves’s directions, essentially told the volatile reliever to concentrate on pitching and that the infielders would focus on positioning themselves properly.

Aceves also dropped a pop-up in the previous half-inning after calling off multiple converging infielders. The Red Sox went on to lose the game 7-1 and have now dropped to 10 games below the .500 mark. It’s a mess.

    The only bigger Puh C’s than Pedroia in Boston are the fans.

      Puh C…can I borrow that one, that is a keeper

        Enjoy. It specifically ties into how the Boston crybabies call the Celtics “the C’s” but works generally as well.

      Bozos…heartbroken that the Jeter sex change operation wasn’t true. Now where is Skip Bayless when you need him?

        Only a loser like you would even bring up that stupid story. Especially given that Jeter has scored more prime poon on his worst days than you could dream of doing on the best day of your miserable life.

    I wonder where Aceves will be working next year? And, how will the Nation explain his resurgence?

    Pedroia is 100% right. Aceves has been slumping, the roster of guys trying to make the team next season ae painful to watch. Players are pressing,trying to make something happen. No one likes losing, even if you have to finish a lost season without most of your opening day roster.

    On a positive note, Juicin’ Jeter and the Cheaters ( see, new nicknames are easy)are fading fast, and the Yankee universe,with it’s two full sets of teeth are in panic mode.

      Soon, the Bombers will have to go through the same purge as the Red Sox. Except CC is a keeper.
      How do you dump Rodriguez? Who’s playing third base for the LA Dodgers? Call Magic Johnson.

      • theskinsman - Sep 3, 2012 at 4:14 PM

        Sideline,the Evil Empire doesn’t go through purges.They just go out and buy other teams all-stars to replace the ones they don’t need anymore. Hopefully Jeter and A-Roid play each game for NY for the length of their contracts.

    The AAA Pawtucket Red Sox are way more professional than these clowns.
