He faked an injury, and was caught limping on different legs on different nights. He refused to play in games.
Oh and there was the little incident where he pushed down an elderly gentleman who worked for the Red Sox because the guy couldn't get him a dozen or so tickets for a game.
He was so destructive to the clubhouse, that the players went to management and asked that they move him. This was in the midst of a playoff run, and they did end up one game away from the World Series.
