Manny Machado responds to Brewers calling him 'dirty player'

Adjust Comment Print

The Athletic first reported that Machado was fined. The amount of the fine has not been announced. Aguilar had too much of his right foot covering the base, but it looked like Machado could have avoided him.

Aguilar wasn't happy about that. No punches were thrown. Machado seemed to have cleared the air with Aguilar after reaching base in his next plate appearance.

That wasn't enough to satisfy some members of the Brewers.

"He's a player that has a history of those types of incidents", Milwaukee slugger Christian Yelich said.

Of course, if Machado were having a awful postseason, it would be easier to make all of the criticism stick, but he leads all postseason hitters with nine RBIs and is tied with three other players for the home run lead (three).

Aguilar declined to comment on Yelich's statements after the game and urged everyone to move on.

Repeated over and over and over again, you're just a dirty player. "It's a dirty play by a dirty player".

Aguilar said the two talked it out after Machado singled in the 13th. If that's dirty, that's dirty. "If that's dirty, that's dirty, I don't know, call it what you want".

Some have questioned Machado's sportsmanship since he tossed his bat toward third base during an incident against the Oakland Athletics in 2014. He found himself at the center of controversy during Game 3 after he engaged in two aggressive slides. Infielder Travis Shaw also called it dirty, and Yelich followed up his post-game criticism of Machado by yelling a profane epithet as he walked away from his locker. In an interview with Fox Sports 1 that aired before Game 4, he acknowledged there was "no excuse" for not making more effort, but also displayed an attitude that won't endear him to the old school.

No argument there. Machado has been playing at the speed of Manny since he broke in with the Orioles in 2012, and for the most part, it hasn't been a big problem.

Major League Baseball has fined Manny Machado an undisclosed amount for the way he ran into Jesus Aguilar last night, sources tell The Athletic.
