The Hillenbrand Saga, part three
2006-07-20 20:30
by Bob Timmermann

Today, Toronto manager John Gibbons admitted that he challenged Hillenbrand to a fight.

"He had a chance yesterday to defend himself in front of his coaches and his teammates. He chose not to," Gibbons said.

Gibbons said someone was done in Toronto -- him or Hillenbrand.

"If the front office felt differently than he wins and I lose, and I would be one out of here," Gibbons said. "I mean it. It was either him or me."

Asked if Hillenbrand did it because he wanted out, Gibbons said: "I know he wanted to get out. That's no secret. To be honest I don't think he really wanted to be here for the last two years."

No matter who was right and wrong in this saga, it sure seems like a freakily dysfunctional situation up there.

If Dick Williams or Alvin Dark were still managing the 1970s Oakland A's, he'd be perfect. But in today's "chemistry" era, I don't think he's getting a job anytime soon.

Gibbons sounds a bit off his rocker, too.
