Red Sox

What did the Yankees take exception to more than Joe Kelly's fastball in the back of Tyler Austin?

It may have been Red Sox manager Alex Cora's actions after the brawl between the rivals on Wednesday night at Fenway Park.

A former major league manager told the New York Daily News that Cora's dismissive waving toward Yankees third-base coach Phil Nevin after Nevin was ejected "was bush league stuff." 

The YES Network broadcast showed Cora drawing a box with his hands and waving as if shooing away Nevin. Check out the video in the tweet below:

"That was bush-league stuff," the ex-manager told the Daily News' John Harper of Cora. "You don't disrespect the other coaching staff like that. Nevin is a well-respected guy in the game, a former No. 1 pick...the guy had a good career. What has Cora done? He's a first-year manager, he's not Mike Scioscia.

"I don't know what was said, but Cora was waving Nevin away like, 'you're not on my level.' And [Cora] was back in the dugout by then. It looked like that got [Yankees manager Aaron] Boone fired up, and I don't blame him.

 

"You do that to someone on my staff, and we're going to have a problem. So, that's what I think will lead to more bad blood at some point."

In case you're wondering, no one on Boone's coaching staff is a former major league manager.  The teams meet again Thursday night at Fenway.
