Wrestling with a fishnet

More a conceptual problem than a technical one. After tinkering around trying to get fishnetting to work, I came to the realization (eventually) that...

var1 = Extent.XMin, Extent.YMin
var2 = str(Extent.XMin)+" "+str(Extent.YMin)
var 1 != var2

And that the later case was the preferred input in the eyes of ArcGIS. Could someone more fluent in Pythonisms enlighten me as to why a string space would be preferred for a coordinate in this case? What am I missing?
