Toronto Blue Jays manager John Schneider blew up the New York Yankees’ dugout Tuesday night when he pointed to the dugout and appeared to yell «Shut up, fat man» during a heated argument.
No one knew who Schneider was speaking to when he directed the insult, but Yankees fans believe assistant hitting coach Brad Wilkerson was the target.
«I guess he targeted me,» Wilkerson said via the New York Post, adding that he had seen speculation that he was the target.

«I’d like to hear it from him, but things happen,» Wilkerson said. «We tried to stay in our dugout. Some stuff happened at third base and we were trying to defend our guys. I didn’t hear about it until after the game when I saw the reports and [it was] It’s shown all over TV.»
Schneider was asked about the incident but denied calling a particular player or coach on the bench.
«The heat of the moment,» he said.

Instead of taking it seriously, the Yankees were having fun with the comment.
«There was some giggling,» Wilkerson told the Post.
The back and forth between the American League East rivals stems from the Blue Jays insinuating that Aaron Judge was cheating during the Yankees’ win on Monday night. Judge looked at first base coach Travis Chapman or his bench, and finally hit a 462-foot home run.
The judge didn’t think it was worth a story, saying he was initially hearing squeaks from his bench and was watching. He also mentioned that he had «choice words» for the Blue Jays broadcast team which also hinted that he was cheating.

During Tuesday night’s game, third baseman Luis Rojas was yelled at by the Blue Jays for being outside the coach’s box, prompting the «fat kid» comment from Schneider.
And Wednesday night saw another celebration of Judge after taking a hit. So, it doesn’t look like this is going to end anytime soon.
