Dye, Cabrera put issue behind them
Players argue in dugout during Wednesday's win over KC
KANSAS CITY -- The White Sox insist there are no lingering problems from Wednesday night's argument between Jermaine Dye and Orlando Cabrera.
Dye and Cabrera got into a disagreement after Cabrera scored the tying run in the eighth inning. Dye was at the plate when Cabrera stole third base.
On Wednesday night, Dye and manager Ozzie Guillen called it a "misunderstanding." Dye reiterated that sentiment on Thursday.
"That's the final word," he said. "We're together in here for seven-plus months. We become a family, everyone has disputes. It's just a matter of good teams dealing with them, saying what we have to say and moving on. We're fine, we talked it out and made up, whatever. We're still a good team."
When asked, Cabrera agreed that the incident was a misunderstanding, and is just part of the game.
Like Wednesday, Guillen said on Thursday that he was glad that the argument occurred. He saw it as a sign of his team being close and not wanting to create problems behind the scenes.
