Prior to Wednesday night's Rays 4-2 loss against the Baltimore Orioles, Tampa Bay lifer Carl Crawford angrily confronted designated hitter Pat Burrell, who is in his first disappointing season with the Rays, in the visitors' clubhouse at Camden Yards. Carl must have been channeling years of bad feelings and antagonism from Phillies fans when he went off on the veteran hitter who forgot how to hit.

Here's what went down:

A teammate then stepped in front of Crawford, trying to calm the situation. Crawford was ushered into a side room.

Manager Joe Maddon said he met with both players after confrontation and cleared the air.

"Everything's good," Maddon said.

Oh, okay, everything's good says noted "players' manager" Joe Maddon. But if the angry words must be kept secret from us, it must have been some pretty awful words shouted to an otherwise smug and quiet Burrell. But what exactly did Crawford say?

Burrell gave his sister Herpes

Crawford was just exorcising some devils.
Har.

Apparently, Burrell didn't take too kindly to being called a "doodoo head"...

Do you see what happens when you find a stranger in the Alps?

Crawford is a huge Bangles fan, and took umbrage to Burrell mock-walking like an Egyptian.

IT WAS MORE THAN JUST A DANCE, PAT. IT WAS ABOUT SOCIAL REPRESSION.

Crawford: I'm sure we can handle this like adults. Isn't that right, Mr. Poopy Pants?

Burrell: That does it!

Maddon: Both of you, cut it out! (both players nod despondently) I'll treat you to some Dairy Queen if we can knock off the potty talk, OK?

Players: OK, Skip.
