Barajas, Drese fight in the dugout

From the AP recap of the Ranger game today...

Barajas and Drese were involved in a confrontation in the Texas dugout in the middle of the sixth inning, apparently over pitch selection. Teammates and manager Buck Showalter separated the pair, who were on the ground, and Barajas and Drese later shook hands when Drese was pulled from the game after the seventh.

After the game, Showalter acknowledged the episode but downplayed it. Barajas and Drese refused to comment.

Apparently, the Royals broadcast team mentioned this during the telecast, but Tom Grieve and Josh Lewin ignored it.

Hmmmm...I wonder, is this what Buck is talking about when he refers to how well Barajas "handles" the pitchers?
