Machado disgraces the game

The Dodger is a dirty player

UPDATE: Machado fined. He is the Vontaze Burfict of baseball.

To think that the Brewers tried to get this guy! Thank the gods of baseball we didn’t! 

Manny Machado is a dirty player. The L.A. Dodgers can have him. For now. He’s a rent-a-player, anyway. We’ll take Orlando Arcia any day. An arrogant prick. A discredit to the game. Josh Hader needs to buzz his control tower. (Not hit him but whistle one past his ear.) The series will go back to Milwaukee no matter what happens later today (Wednesday, 10-17-18) and Macho-man will be booed long, hard, and often. 

The dirty player easily could have put Jesus Aguilar out for the series and all of next season by purposely, and obviously, trying to injure the first baseman’s achilles tendon. 

The question is why didn’t umpires throw him out of the game? Pro football would have tossed the guy for an egregious late hit. At least Hall of Famer Joe Torre, MLB’s vice principal in charge of discipline, will review the play. A one-game suspension in-series would be appropriate.

Not that Machado appears to care. Thugs never do.

When Machado was asked again about the play, he said, “I was trying to get over him and hit his foot. If that’s dirty, that’s dirty. I don’t know, call it what you want.”

That’s dirty. Credit FS-1 announcers Joe Buck (don’t get the hate Packers fans have for him) and John Smoltz for calling Macho-man out on his felonious play. 

Earlier, Machado mocked the Brewer catcher by wildly gesticulating that he, too, wanted an appeal from the first-base umpire of an almost swinging strike. Almost as egregious, the guy steps out of the batters box on a pitch already on its way then bitches when the umpire justifiably doesn’t grant the time out and calls a strike instead. 

This follows at least one — and possibly two — illegal slides into second base in Game 3 Monday. The umpires rightly called two outs on the second, which was totally unnecessary. 

Disgracefully, the pre-game talking heads for FS-1 were all about excusing Machado for not running out ground balls. Guys like A-Rod, Big Papi, and the Big Hurt should know better. They played the game the right way.

So does Christian Yelich.

“He’s a player that has a history of those types of instances. One time’s an accident, but over and over and over again — you’re just a dirty player,” Yelich said. “A dirty play by a dirty player. It absolutely is. I have a lot of respect for him as a player, but you can’t respect someone who plays the game like that.”

As No. #1 son Max said during the game, “Somewhere in hell, Ty Cobb is cheering this guy.”

    Ty Cobb was unfairly accused of being a dirty player and of being a racist.

      Don’t forget Mitch the Turtle. Took over in 2015 and the deficit went up 77%. Now he’s “disturbed” to see that his bigly tax cuts haven’t paid for themselves as advertised. His answer to that? Cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid. Of course. Hey; Ms Pukmir. If elected will you vote with the gop to cut grandma’s SS check? Answer; if I get a memo from ALEC saying to vote that way then I will.

      Oh my Gunny Sacks, (H/T @GOOD DOG HAPPY MAN), youse…um…Gotch me.

      And coming to the defense of a real real tough Uncle Georgie Soros-backed Lefty thug that beats Righty women in the name of Lefty?

      Good move! And that’s almost as gutty as the soon-to-be-Club-Fed-CATCHER Stark III.

      Anywho, NO WAY I can muster up a list of Lefty miscreants like that.

      Why?

      Ask Senator Claire “Hide From The Idiot Base What I REALLY Think” McCaskill.

      Or Hillarity “You’s Have A Private Position And Public Position” Clinton.

      Lefties won’t ask. It’s…um…Obvious to some that all they need to SEE is a D, accompanied by bright, shiny, seductively moving stimuli which they can follow like trained seals.

      It gets worse!

  4. Machado only got fined $10 large. What’s that, about an inning’s pay? Or 2 1/2 years pay for a Dells donut maker.

    Too bad Aguilar isn’t an NFL QB…

        I see my 14 EEE feet every day: when I lace up my running shoes for a 3.5 miles/5.645 kms run, a ~ 3 mile/4,838 km walk with my Good Golden Girl, and during every one of my 550 + situps.

        But, there is somewhere I WON’T ever see them?

        In a 200 sf Section VIII subsidized apartment, after getting kicked out of a postage stamp size condo for being a DEADBEAT.

        But as fate would have it, that’s EXACTLY where youse see yers, am I right?
