Chone Figgins had every opportunity to gracefully put to rest his dugout confrontation with manaer Don Wakamatsu last night - and steadfastly refused to do so.
The Seattle Mariners rallied to beat Boston and Jon Lester, 5-1, and Figgins had an RBI double late to help. The clubhouse had smiles working, and Wakamatsu said the win was a nice way to put Friday's theatrics behind the team.
Figgins? Not so fast. Asked if the incident in which he was benched mid-game was now behind him, Figgins said:
“No. Not necessarily. When I get my thoughts together and I decide to talk about it, I’m going to talk about it.”
Were he and Wakamatsu at least on the same page moving forward?
“That’s hard to say. The same page is winning for me,” Figgins said. "There’s nobody in this clubhouse, in this game, who can stop me from going out and competing every day no matter what the situation is."
