Just wondering how and why this clubhouse confrontation occured. The team has been struggling and they need a kick in the pants.
You get 2 veteran pitchers together and they're chatting about what it would take to get the youngsters attention to realize that the season is over unless they get things headed in the right direction, and soon.
So Byrd and Wick plan a "show down" of sorts in the clubhouse where they challenge each others manhood. They're smart enough not to actually fight for risk of injury but their confrontation gets the attention of the younger players.
Now all we need is for the team to start performing with a sense of urgency.
A 1-0 shutout doesn't do it ...
