Manny Machado

Check this out … it pretty much speaks for itself … SMH. (below the pic is an actual tweet from the Angels) Actual Tweet from the @Angels Official Twitter account: #LightWave — Angels (@Angels) August 29, 2014 Way to keep it classy Angels!! Didn’t learn from Manny Machado that KARMA IS A BITCH?! Oh, you hadn’t heard he’s out for the season?? You can ask him about it in 2015 then. 

Stay classy Anaheim … Karma can be a bitch!

Machado helps A’s, hits walk-off vs. Angels (video) (then doesn’t know the difference between whipped cream and chocolate! Silly cry-baby man-boy b*tch) Honestly, I hate to have to be grateful for Manny Machado hitting a stupid home run but the Angels are now 2 1/2 games back behind the Athletics in the A.L. West. It’s gonna be a tense rest of the season with the teams with the two best records in the game fighting for the same division title, but so far so good, the A’s remain in first place thanks to their astonishing ninth inning comeback and to […]

A’s score 6 runs in the ninth to steal the ...

Well, he may have gotten some, well, key hits but it was the A’s who emerged victorious on Josh Donaldson’s three-run walk-off !!! One does have to wonder if he ran into the club house crying?! Bet his teammates would never tell because of all the “support” the organization has for him …. I’d be embarrassed if  I were on the Orioles – that kind of behavior will stick with you! As evidenced by the outpouring of love from A’s fans last night!! Here’s a little picture blog just so you get the idea! Enjoy!        

A’s fans out in force after Machado!

  Wow, if I thought this kid was delusional before not I am pretty sure he has completely lost his mind. The players and fans in Oakland did not take him arguing with Josh Donaldson, not caring that he hit Derek Norris not once but twice with his back swing (and smirking about it!!) and the bat throwing incident – either it was meant to hit the third baseman, who he thought was still Donaldson even though Donaldson had been replaced by Alberto Callaspo or it was terrible aim at pitcher Fernando Abad … either way neither the players nor […]

Machado thinks everything will be fine in Oakland

In related news:Machado is either a bad liar or is delusional: The “Man-Boy” is so insane he needs to be institutionalized or at least demoted to Triple-A I know I am a little late in getting this out there – but I was working on my Raul Ibanez article for Call to the Pen – (you can find the link in the post below – I’m actually quite proud of it and Ibanez has had a remarkable career that many don’t really know about so if you have a second please take a look at the full article! Thanks!) – […]

Machado’s suspension upheld, but he’s obviously learned nothing

“I think it was fair. We both came to the table and said what we had to say and got it done. I think it went well, and we made our case,” Machado said. “It was fairly easy…it went well.” Seriously, if this hearing actually did go Manny Machado’s way I might have to stop watching baseball all together! Ok, we all know I’m not fooling anyone with that threat because I probably wouldn’t live through boycotting baseball … but this story isn’t about me – it’s about Mr. “I didn’t throw my bat at anyone” Manny Machado.

ICYMI: Around MLB with Oakland A’s Socks Girl: June 25, ...

Well we have another interesting move from good old – I mean young – Manny Machado. With the antics he pulled, throwing tantrums against the A’s earlier this month one certainly can’t use the term “old.” Maybe “old” as in I’m tired of hearing about it old … just suspend him already! So in an unexpected twist Machado launched his own line of salsa yesterday. Um, ok. I guess it’s not unheard of. According to Baltimore Magazine both the Reds’ Joey Votto and Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera have both teamed up with PLB Sports to launch their own lines of athlete-branded foods. […]

Machado debuts salsa line Tuesday, Fights suspension Wednesday?!

Machado plans to appeal. — Tim Brown (@TBrownYahoo) June 10, 2014 Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports reports that Baltimore Orioles’ third baseman Manny Machado will get a five game suspension and a fine for his actions over the weekend towards the Oakland Athletics.

Update: Machado gets five game suspension, will appeal

  Is Manny Machado going to be suspended? That is just one of the questions in the mind of the Baltimore Orioles’ GM Dan Duquette. Apparently there’s another question that Duquette is contemplating,”should Manny Machado be demoted to the minors?” Duquette tells Fox Sports that it is “an option.”  To read the rest of this story CLICK HERE!

Orioles’ GM says demoting Manny Machado is “an option”

  Manny Machado seemed to be the centerpiece connecting three altercations between the Oakland Athletics and the Baltimore Orioles over the two teams’ weekend series in Baltimore. He clearly either has some issues with the Athletics or he just needs to grow up. He is only 21, but if you are going to play in the majors you need to behave like a grown up.
