You never hear about Mariano Rivera having issues with his teammates.  The happy-go-lucky closer is one of the game’s all-time greats, and is one of the most respected players in the entire league. The guy is still allowed to wear Jackie Robinson’s 42 for cryin’ out loud; so you know there’s respect there. Joba Chamberlain doesn’t seem to care about that. Before Saturday’s 3-2 win over the Royals, Mo and Joba got into a tiff right in front of reporters after Rivera told Chamberlain to be quiet so he could conduct an interview.  Chamberlain, who was signing autographs and talking to family, told Rivera “Don’t ever shush me again,” according to the New York Daily News. Many who were present felt Chamberlain was the one who was out of line; and does that really surprise anyone?  Frank Isola of the New York Daily News was one of those reporters: Mariano got into it with Joba in the Yankees dugout? Wow. Lets see, whose side do you take, a guy who is all class or a class A knucklehead. — Frank Isola (@FisolaNYDN) May 12, 2013 It was confirmed after the game that the two had not spoken about the incident, but now one must wonder:  Is trouble brewing in the Bronx? When asked about the incident, Chamberlain was short with reporters saying “I’m not talking about it” and reiterating that it was “between me and Mo.” Rivera showed his maturity when speaking about the situation saying “We’re grownups…We’ll take care of that.” Now we’ll just have to wait and see just how this situation gets taken care of.
