Brewers’ Christian Yelich rips Manny Machado, calls him ‘dirty player’

Manny Machado warns Yankees and everyone I don’t hustle

Major League Baseball made a decision to fine Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Manny Machado following an incident during Tuesday night's game between the Dodgers and Brewers.

The benches cleared and Machado was suspended for five games, although he initially said the bat slipped out of his hands accidentally. After the game Tuesday night, Machado tried to play innocent, saying, "You saw the replay, probably, I was trying to get over him and hit his foot. It's really not at the forefront of our mind".

Then in Game 4 on Tuesday, Machado, who defiantly proclaimed he is not the type of player who is going to hustle to first on a ground ball, grounded to short in the 10th, and when he crossed the bag at first his left foot gave a little kick to Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar's plant foot. He briefly hugged Aguilar while they stood together at first base.

But Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich described it as "a dirty play by a dirty player" as part of an expansive condemnation of Machado. "One time is an accident". Repeated over and over and over again, you're just a dirty player.

"It's a dirty play by a dirty player". But Brewers manager Craig Counsell said he expected it to be business as usual on the field.

"I've never given excuses for not running, " he said. That's meaningless to me.

The winning numbers for the Mega Millions game are drawn from a field of 1 to 70. The winning numbers were 2, 22, 29, 31 and 34, and the Mega Ball number was 1.

Machado can expect a rough reception from Brewers fans when the series returns to Milwaukee. Former Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez wondered on the FS1 postgame show whether the string of incidents could affect Machado's impending free agency after the season. You can say it wasn't on goal, this and that, but it's a dirty play. Oh, yeah, yeah, we're out. "We like him, but now we're out.' You're losing tens of millions of dollars by the second if that becomes the narrative".

Machado attracted disdain early in the 2017 season with a hard slide into Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia.

While with the Baltimore Orioles, Machado got brushed back with a pitch from Oakland A's hurler Fernando Abad in the eighth inning of game.

In fact, established members of the baseball community have said that Machado was not in the wrong.

Major League Baseball doesn't announce player fines, but multiple U.S. media outlets confirmed that Machado would be docked an undisclosed amount.
