This is out of the Southtown:

After getting ejected in the fifth inning Sunday by home-plate umpire Phil Cuzzi, Sox manager
Jerry Manuel continued to go back and forth with Cuzzi in a heated argument before leaving
the field.

At one point, it appeared Manuel bumped Cuzzi's back, as Cuzzi stopped suddenly while
Manuel was walking after him.

"(Cuzzi) kind of mentioned (that I bumped him), but I don't know," Manuel said. "I'm sure he
might look at it, or maybe not."

Asked whether he felt a suspension might be forthcoming for having bumped an ump, Manuel
shrugged, "I don't know, my chest ain't that big."

From what I could tell watching it live. The ump definitely mentioned bumping. I thought he said, 'You going to bump me now?" repeatedly, but my lip reading skills are still developing...

I could make out a " **** off " by the umpire when yelling at the Sox bench.

When he ejected Wallace, he kept saying "Fine, goodbye."
