Manny Machado’s antics should not turn the Phillies away

Manny Machado has been the talk of the NLCS and not because of his play on the field. Will his antics now affect his market come free agency?

I was wrong, Manny Machado is not the guy for the Phillies

I was wrong, Manny Machado is not the guy for the Phillies

After watching this NLCS, it’s fair to wonder if the Phillies like the cut of Machado’s jib. This has been quite the heel turn for Manny Machado. The Los Angeles Dodgers star and free-agent-to-be has had quite a National League Championship Series through the first four games, creating controversy at nearly every turn and gaining a number of enemies along the way. In Game 2, Machado failed to run hard down the first base line on a routine ground ball to shortstop Orlando Arcia, prompting some on social media, and on the TV broadcast, to question his lack of hustle. After the game,...

The Cubs should stay far, far away from Manny Machado

The Cubs should stay far, far away from Manny Machado

The Dodgers shortstop has not distinguished himself in the NLCS. In the 13th inning of Game 4 of the NLCS, Manny Machado singled with one out, took second base on a wild pitch and scored the winning run on Cody Bellinger’s single with a perfect slide into home plate. Apart from that, though, Machado has been spending much of the series showing why teams shouldn’t sign him as a free agent. The Cubs probably weren’t one of those teams anyway, but after what we’ve seen from Machado this series, I’d say he’s spent it costing himself many millions of dollars with his play, or lack...

Manny Machado's attitude perfect for Mets, Yasmani Grandal not so much

There is no good reason not to sign Bryce Harper or Manny Machado

There is no good reason not to sign Bryce Harper or Manny Machado

The Phillies should sign one of these guys if they can and there’s really no good argument to make against it. I am not a person who thinks this Phillies community should be one great, big, giant echo chamber. Different viewpoints, even those that are controversial and a little “out there” should always be welcomed. Life is boring when everyone agrees. There’s no spark to life otherwise, no juice, and sports was meant to be argued about (hopefully without one person throwing a beer at another), sometimes at loud volumes. But if you’re going to take a viewpoint that goes radically...

Christian Yelich calls Machado play a ‘dirty play by a dirty player’

The MVP-to-be doesn’t hide his feelings on Manny Machado’s collision with Jesus Aguilar at first base The Brewers lost Game 4 of the NLCS and pitcher Gio Gonzalez for the rest of the playoffs in the early-morning hours Wednesday, but almost suffered another loss when a play involving Manny Machado and Jesus Aguilar at first base nearly cost the Brewers their cleanup hitter. Machado appeared to intentionally drag his foot across the back of Aguilar’s leg while trying to run out a ground ball, running to the left of the first base foul line. Aguilar came up hobbling, and it caused both...

Machado again brings unwanted attention on himself

The story of the National League Championship Series between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Los Angeles Dodgers has been Manny Machado. Not only have we been reminded during the telecasts that the Brewers were also a serious suitor for Machado ahead of the July non-waiver trade deadline, but there have been countless reminders that Machado […]

NYY news: Hustle and No

Machado doesn’t hustle; Comparing Machado’s D to Didi’s; Looking at other options; Arizona Fall League update; Team donates to Hurrican Michael relief efforts New York Post | Mark W. Sanchez: I’m not going to lie, the only reason I’m including this piece in here is because I like to set fires and just watch the world burn while eating popcorn. In an interview with The Athletic (paywall), Manny Machado admitted that he doesn’t hustle, nor will he start. He does admit that he should give more of an effort, but at this point it’s hard to change who he is as a player or person. If...

Schmuck: Manny's still just being Manny, but now more people are paying attention

Former Oriole Manny Machado has always played baseball to the beat of his own drum, so it’s not like anybody should be surprised at his reaction to criticism about his lack of hustle on a ground ball during Game 2 of the National League Championship Series. Machado told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic...

2018 NLCS: Brewers vs. Dodgers Game 5, and ALCS: Red Sox vs. Astros Game 4

2018 NLCS: Brewers vs. Dodgers Game 5, and ALCS: Red Sox vs. Astros Game 4

These series are both getting more interesting. MLB Scheduler: I know! We’ll just reverse the Wednesday schedule from the Tuesday schedule! The Dodgers and Brewers can play a day game so we can showcase the game in Houston at night! What could possibly go wrong? Everyone else in the world: Uh.... And so it is that the Brewers and Dodgers will have the first pitch of Game 5 this afternoon just 12 hours and 40 minutes after Manny Machado slid across the plate with the winning run in Game 4. It’s not just that the teams played five hours, 15 minutes — it’s the intensity with which...

Gamethread: Brewers at Dodgers, NLCS Game 5

This tight series is tied — and starting to get a little bit spicy Milwaukee Brewers at Los Angeles Dodgers, NLCS Game 5 (4:05 CT, FS1) My wife and I were watching extra innings last night — believe it or not, us watching baseball together is a rare occurrence — and she had one word for Manny Machado: “smug.” And while I’m not going to weigh in on whether the possible future Chicago White Sox third baseman is a jackass (Machado’s cheap shot on first baseman Jesus Aguilar on a no-brainer ground out in extra innings sure was a jackass move), there’s something about the guy...

NLCS Game 5/ALCS Game 4: Open Game Thread

They somehow play again now. For those of you who joined me in staying up for last night’s NLCS Game 4, I salute you. The Dodgers won, the Brewers used Josh Hader and didn’t pull it out, and everybody is really angry. With the NLCS knotted up at 2-2 and the ALCS leaning 2-1 in favor of the Red Sox, let’s take quick stock of where each team is at. Brewers: Christian Yelich had strongest words for Manny Machado last night ("Dirty play by a dirty player") but manager Craig Counsell threw the best shade when asked if Machado merely was playing hard: "I don't think he's playing all that...

Diner Question: If money didn’t matter, would you want Machado on 2019 Orioles?

Manny Machado has been the focal point of the National League Championship Series between his Los Angeles Dodgers and the Milwaukee Brewers. If the Dodgers win on either Friday or Saturday, they’ll advance to Machado’s first World Series, enhancing his visibility.
