11:33 AM ET 06.02 | Diamondbacks third-base coach Matt Williams was impressed with the way Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija threw the ball Saturday night, but the former All-Star was not pleased with the way Samardzija handled himself. Williams and Samardzija appeared to have words as Williams jogged off the field following the third out of an inning. According to Williams, Samardzija yelled at him, "What are you looking at?" Williams said he replied, "I'm not looking at you." "I have no idea," Williams said when asked why Samardzija would say that to him. "I didn't say a word to the man and I don't have any respect for that. I have no respect for him showing somebody up on the field."

Matty was just looking longingly at that hair...

Ya got to cut the kid some slack Matt. He is playing on a team that has not been to a World Series in 68 years or won one in 105 years. He is under a lot of pressure.

I bet he was in a really bad mood because he knew the bullpen would waste another of his quality starts. Maybe Carlos Marmol should be nicknamed Mr. Cub.

And he dumped his girlfriend to concentrate on improving his pitching so that has to be frustrating. I also think he chose the wrong profession. He would have made a perfect Bozo the Clown.

You've gotta give Samardizzy a break, he's got a NASTY yeast infection right now and the itchy feeling up there is killing him!

Very nice. I was thinking something similar, like - he needs to put his attitude back in his purse next his tampons. And with a 3-6 season does he really want Matty to take him out to the woodshed and make his year even worse?

Yup, we have a few legends, oh, and a World Series trophy. . . from the last 100 years. LOL !!! Sorry if you're in a bad mood from having us kick your arses again today. The view is nice at the top. You should have a look sometime. Have a nice week!

Playing for the Cubs would wear down most pitchers.

Samardzija was probably looking at Williams trying to imagine what he will look like in 25-30 years from now, while Williams trying to remember when he had hair 20-25 years ago.

Yeah - are the D'backs old enough to actually have legends yet?

He's just trying to get some attention for the Diamondbacks, since they have a fan base of six or seven people.
