Great Moments in Managing History: Part III

Lou Pinella has a temper. And not like yours - Lou never punches a wall and then claims to have mangled a loud-mouth in a bar fight. No, Lou attacks his players. While he's revered for his fiery persona, he should never take it to the next level and go after a pitcher, especially if it's 6'4'', 230 lb Rob Dibble. In the clubhouse. In front of press. And players. And cameras.

Even though this altercation took place over a decade ago, it's still just as awkwardly funny. Watching old men try and recoup some of their young-at-heart fighting ability never goes stale.
