Manny Machado Fined Undisclosed Amount for Jesus Aguilar Incident

  • The Brewers have one of the best bullpens in baseball, but it's the rotation that has produced unexpected heroes

While at first, Machado and Aguilar appeared to make up, sharing a hug.

Aguilar left his foot on the base for a moment after Machado was already out, and the star shortstop appeared to show his displeasure by bringing his left foot forward and kicking Aguilar on the back of the leg. "I have a lot of respect for him as a player, but you can't respect someone who plays the game like that". "I don't know. Call it what you want".

Brewers manager Craig Counsell wasn't concerned the incident would distract from his team's focus in the best-of-seven series.

Of course, if Machado were having a bad 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).

Major League Baseball fined Machado an undisclosed amount Wednesday, a day after the baserunning incident caused the benches to clear at Dodger Stadium and prompted Brewers MVP candidate Christian Yelich to call Machado a "dirty player".

Aguilar said the two talked it out after Machado singled in the 13th.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson end engagement
Engaged since May - weeks after meeting - the couple is reportedly on good terms and they still "have love for each other". Multiple outlets are reporting the "God is a Woman" singer and " Saturday Night Live " star have broken up.

But Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich described it as "a dirty play by a dirty player" as part of an expansive condemnation of Machado. Yelich said if a play like that happened one time from Machado it might be considered an accident, but he sees it as a pattern. We go way back since the minor leagues.

The fine comes after Machado made a controversial play in the 10th inning of Tuesday's game. You can say it wasn't on objective, this and that, but it's a dirty play. "You have 30 owners - all want you right now", he said. "The other stuff just washes away, man".

Machado attracted disdain early in the 2017 season with a hard slide into Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia. The shortstop later scored the winning run, sliding home to give Los Angeles a 2-1 win that evened the NLCS at two games each.

Aguilar, who wasn't hurt on the play, said he and Machado "turned the page" afterward.

It's not the first time Machado's intentions have been questioned during the series.
