Dodgers Altercation Between Kemp and Puig a Concern?

Following a strike out in the sixth inning of Monday night’s 11-3 victory, Matt Kemp promptly made his way back into the Los Angeles Dodgers‘ dugout and made his way straight for Yasiel Puig as the two began to engage in a heated argument. Manager Don Mattingly was able to stand between his two outfielders and break up the argument.

After the game, Mattingly brushed the incident aside attributing it to “family business” among the team.

The Dodgers’ win gives the team a four game advantage over the San Francisco Giants. Over their past 10 games, the Dodgers have managed to post an 8-2 record. While the dugout altercation is being pushed aside from the Dodgers, it will be interesting to see how this incident impacts the team going forward – if it does at all.

Hey, the Dodgers found a way to be successful in spite of employing the services of Manny Ramirez in the past, so surely this event seems like a cakewalk in comparison.
