Gibby- addresses dust-ups with Shea and Lilly. Says there is no room for physical confrontation, bad move on his part. Too old to get physical, wish it hadn't happened. That said, he is an intense guy, confronts things head on. He is passionate, and needs everyone pulling in the same direction. Doesn't expect problems, problems are rare. Thinks he played his best baseball after those incidents.
AA- didn't have a problem with confrontations. AA views it as a strong point. Hillenbrand needed to be dealt with, in front of his team mates. AA says if you push Gibby, he will react, which is important. Gibby pinned David Wells against a wall at one point .
This was really a cool part of the presser. GM_AA supported the physical side of things his last tenure. Awesome. Shea needed to have his <*** kicked. I wish Zaunie would have also got in there
