The Orioles-Red Sox rivalry continues on this season after what many thought was the end of this whole situation. After Matt Barnes threw at Manny Machado's head last week I was under impression that this would be the end of the debacle, unless the Orioles decided to retaliate. Well, apparently it wasn't, the first at bat against Chris Sale of Tuesday Machado got a pitch thrown behind him, and boy was he pissed off. After the game he sounded off saying how crazy it was that they continue to throw at him over one incident. He continued on by saying if they were going to hit him just do it already stop beating around the bush. The best line he had was when he said these pitchers throw a baseball 100mph at you, it's not cool, I have a bat that I could crush them with, but I'll get suspended the whole year, meanwhile they only get suspended for two games . Machado is right, why can't he use a weapon since these pitchers are, it's only fair. Next time they throw at Machado he better charge the mound because this is getting ridiculous. We've seen him do it before and that was awesome, so hopefully he does it again.
Classic dirtbag Red Sox and piece of shit Chris Sale not being able to let things go. You threw at the guys head and missed, you lost your chance. Sale should've immediately been ejected, the umpire was too soft even though he knew it was clearly on purpose. Sale doesn't miss behind someones back, especially since he's the most accurate pitcher in baseball. Psychopath Chris Sale went on a rampage cutting up jerseys he didn't want to wear, throwing at someone a week after for unintentional take out at second base is definitley not out of his realm of psychotics. Machado should've ran out to the mound slammed wiry Chris Sale injuring him for at least a couple months. This way he gets his payback and helps out the rest of the AL East.
I hope this rivalry keeps going for the rest of the season and now I think it might. I really thought it was going to die out after Barnes threw at Machado, but I guess baseball hasn't got as soft as I thought, which is a nice relief. Machado said he has no respect for anyone in that clubhouse and he shouldn't. Pedroia tried to do that bullshit in game apology last week, obviously that didn't mean shit or you would've told your teammates to just stop with this nonsense already. Now, if I'm an Orioles pitcher I'm throwing at Pedroia. If you can't control your pitchers, if you can't control your clubhouse as a veteran, you deserve to get beamed. An eye for an eye it's only fair.
