Francona fined for run-in with umpires

TORONTO -- Terry Francona confirmed that he was fined by Major League Baseball for his on-field argument with umpires Angel Hernandez and Joe West last Friday.

Francona said the fine was a "small amount,'' -- thought to be 500.

"It was handled and we'll move on,'' said Francona.

He said he wasn't worried about the prospect of a suspension "because, the way things go, you hear pretty quick'' if there are going to be games missed.

It was unclear whether West, who repeatedly bumped Francona during the argument, was also fined.

"I thought Joe should have fouled out,'' joked Francona.
