Manny Machado Is Fed Up With Red Sox & Their Pitchers
Even though New York Yankees led by Aaron Judge are having a revival-type season, Boston Red Sox have a new, angrier rival these days with Baltimore Orioles. The two teams don’t like each other. It starts with Manny Machado, the enigma of a third baseman, for Baltimore who slid hard into second base a week ago then the entire Boston pitching staff made it a point to let him know it’s not cool. Machado found ways to get their pitchers’ heads with pimping home runs and everything else. After getting hit near the head by reliever Matt Barnes last week, Chris Sale threw behind Orioles slugger in the first inning of the game. Orioles third baseman finally lost it after the game.

I appreciate Machado’s use of the f word here. He says ‘fuck’ or some variation 12 times in a span of 1:12 minutes. That’s impressive. Orioles third baseman has every right to be anger here. There’s nothing that’s stopping players from throwing at opponents. The suspensions are weak, and it’s something Major League Baseball has to fix. While he did say the word ‘fuck’ a lot, there was a great deal of truth in some of things Machado talked about.
The two teams meet again tonight.
