Weird. If the consequence of a verbal battle would have been Manny getting tossed, holding him out of the game would have had the same outcome, guaranteed. If it wasn't the thumb, maybe Buck was genuinely displeased with Manny's reaction? 

Buck sure did a convincing job of covering for Manny if that was the real reason.

That is enough reason for Manny to not PH in the ninth?

 

That would have set up what happen the day before.  Buckner called Manny out on a check swing to end the game and Manny stood at home plate and yelled at Buckner.

I understand that but if you can't trust Manny to keep his cool for one at bat...

Does Buck have to bench him everytime Buckner is HPU for the next two years?

Did you see Manny on the pregame tonight?

Won't get much value for Manny then. Honestly, I'd be shopping him at the deadline and see what kind of hits I get.

Would depend on where the team is.  If they are contending you probably have to wait until the offseason.

I doubt they'll be within striking distance by July. They just can't pitch.
