A fan in Philadelphia has filed complaints against Phil Nevin with the Phillies, MLB, the Players Association, and the Padres.
The fan had some harsh words for Nevin, who admittedly spat back with some profanity, not realizing the man's daughter was present. Because Padres' president Dick Freeman is now involved and upset, Nevin could face some discipline. ''My take now is that I am very concerned. If it happened this way, it is an embarrassment to our franchise and we will deal with it,'' Freeman said. Brian Giles said he witnessed the confrontation, calling it a ''nonissue'' and the fan's complaint ''ridiculous.'' Nevin explained himself to GM Kevin Towers with: ''Kevin, I walked off the field and the fan is screaming at me, and I look up and say something back, and he keeps going, and I said something back to him. That was it.'' Pardon an editorial, but with all the recent reports about the venom and vulgarity opposing teams have had to endure in the visiting bullpen in Philadelpha, including from children, this complaint appears especially hypocritical.
