Davey Johnson: Nationals’ dugout spat ‘Shows there’s still life’

Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson said Wednesday he did not expect any lingering issues stemming from a Tuesday night dugout spat between Jayson Werth and Gio Gonzalez that was captured by television cameras. 

“That was a little strange, but it’s happened,” Johnson said. “I’ve had other clubs — when you’re frustrated and you see a little something you don’t like, and then another person’s not really feeling that great, tempers flare.

“It just shows you’ve got a pulse and that you care.”

Nationals teammates indicated that the issue would not be one that would take much to move past. Adam LaRoche said Tuesday night he expected it wouldn’t be a problem going forward.

“You’ve got a year where we’ve underachieved, been struggling, around each other all day long,” he said. “Occasionally some tempers are going to flare. Guys are competitive. It’s going to happen. They’ll both be over it tomorrow and so will we.”
