Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson likes the way Chicago Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija throws the ball.
But the way Samardzija runs his mouth? Nah, not so much.
Gibson wasn't impressed with Samardzija yelling at Arizona third-base coach Matt Williams Saturday in Chicago. The Diamondbacks won 12-4 despite an 11-strikeout performance by Samardzija.
"It's part of the game," Gibson said of Samardzija's chirping. "Whatever. He didn't get the win did he? Maybe the next time he should just shut the (expletive) up and pitch."
Samardzija and Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy also got into it verbally after the Cubs pitcher nearly hit him twice while he was batting.
DEATH ON HENRY'S YACHT
Cops investigated a death aboard the yacht of Boston Red Sox owner John Henry Monday.
According to the Boston Globe, city police were called to the yacht, the 164-foot Iroquois, which is docked at Rowes Wharf, around noon on Monday and found a 28-30-year-old man in cardiac arrest. He later died, the victim of an apparent suicide.
Other reports indicated the dead man was a member of the crew, not a relative of Henry. No cause of death was reported.
"(He) apparently took his life aboard the vessel," Red Sox spokesman Kevin Gregg said. "Apparently only crew members were on board the vessel when the incident occurred."
Henry, a 63-year-old billionaire, has owned the Red Sox since 2002 and also owns the Liverpool soccer team.
TOP PROSPECT TEST POSITIVE
Oklanhoma pitcher Jonathan Gray, a likely top-five pick in this week's MLB draft, tested positive for Adderall, according to ESPN.
The report says Gray won't be suspended for the positive test but will be subjected to additional testing after he is drafted. Adderall is an amphetamine currently on MLB's banned list unless the user has a valid therapeutic use exemption, which Gray reportedly did not have.
Gray, who is 10-2 with a 1.59 earned-run average for Oklahoma this season, was once thought to be a potential first overall pick but that has changed in recent days. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound righthander will probably slide to third or fourth, or even lower now that news of his positive test has been made public.
