Even though Joba Chamberlain apologized to Mariano Rivera yesterday for talking rudely to the Yankees icon Saturday, Chamberlain said he wouldn’t do anything differently if given a mulligan.

On Saturday, Rivera was in the Yankees’ dugout before a 3-2 win over the Royals talking to people about a very emotional meeting he had at Kauffman Stadium with baseball fans with sad personal stories.

Chamberlain was attempting to get the attention of his family in the seats and was speaking loudly. Rivera asked Chamberlain to lower the volume and Chamberlain responded “Don’t shush me,’’ several times.

Yesterday morning, Chamberlain said there was “no need to apologize’’ but later Rivera said Chamberlain did apologize.

“I wouldn’t change it, I wouldn’t change anything I do in life,’’ Chamberlain said. “It happens and you talk about it.’’

Rivera and Chamberlain likened the situation to family members having a disagreement and each vowed there is no lingering problems.

“It was my fault. My family is here and my son wasn’t here which kind of bothered me but that’s another story for another day,’’ Chamberlain said. “Other than that I was talking to my family and it is what it is. You have arguments.’’

Rivera was more concerned that the situation unfolded in front of people and not in the clubhouse or an area where others couldn’t have heard it.

“Unfortunately it happened in front of you guys,’’ Rivera told reporters before yesterday’s game. “It happened and it’s done. He apologized, but again I am the oldest here and I have to be the brother that has to keep calm and say what I need to say.’’

The relievers posed for a picture with big smiles.

“Sometimes we do something that we don’t mean to say,’’ Rivera said.
