For All the Apologists

You gotta see this. Manager Manny Acta finally finds something to get his back up about. Milledge and Dukes have quietly been spoken to about their on-field histrionics, and Milledge certainly carried some baggage down from New York with him in that regard.

But the little pose-down by Dukes, including the look back at pitcher Matt Capps, after Milledge's homer in the ninth tonight didn't sit well with Manny.

Here's the video courtesy of ESPN's Baseball Tonight.

Dukes dropping his hand in the post-game high five is great, but Manny's smirk afterwards is classic. It will be very interesting to see how Acta handles this going forward.
