Abreu Pulled a Pedro on Tito

"Francona's message to his players was succinct: I'll fight for you, as long as you follow my rules. Abreu, an outfielder with a sweet swing, tested Francona's patience by arriving late to the park. The first time, the manager ushered him into his office and calmly explained tardiness was unacceptable. The second time, the player was fined. The third time, Francona threw Abreu out of the clubhouse. 'Terry wanted to send Bobby home, but the ball club wouldn't let him,' Mills said. 'Even though the front office wouldn't stand behind him, Terry still found a way to make it work. He stayed on Bobby. He made him a better player.'" -- 2.13.04, Jackie MacMullan, Boston Globe
