Manager Bob Melvin would not comment on the incident, which occurred Friday night, according to sources. Melvin said Saturday only that Butler was out with nausea and vomiting, but he specifically ruled out the flu when asked if that was Butler’s ailment.
Nausea and vomiting typically are among the symptoms of concussions.
According to two sources, the dispute in the clubhouse began when Butler informed an equipment representative that Valencia had not, in fact, been wearing the spikes that Valencia had told the representative that he was using.
In other words he probably suffered a concussion. I guess that will teach Butler to talk about Valencia's shoes. I guess this is what happens on a 53-71 team.
I'm glad to see Money Ball is still doing well.
