Joe Girardi said yesterday that if he saw a replay that showed what Shelley Duncan did was dirty, he would have a meeting with him.
Girardi and Duncan met this morning.
Duncan said later he didn’t want to talk about the meeting. Let’s see, 2 + 2 …
“We talked,” Duncan said. “Whenever you have private conversations with people you like to keep it between them.”
Duncan said he saw the replay. “When you do something, it never looks the same as what you thought you did,” he said. “So it didn’t look the same as what I thought I did.”
Asked whether he would do the same thing again, Duncan paused. “A lot of time situations don’t repeat themselves. … When you have a walk with the manager heâ€™s going to give you things to learn from thatâ€™s right or wrong, whatever his viewpoint is. Thatâ€™s what we talked about.â€
So there you have it. The only question now is what sort of punishment MLB levies against the participants. Duncan and Jonny Gomes will likely be suspended.
