It was Oriole-on-Oriole crime as Adam Jones made a stunning play to rob Manny Machado of a sure home run, and holding onto the slim 4-2 U.S. lead over the Dominican Republic.
Manny Machado helped his Dominican Republic team in a defensive battle against Venezuela tonight with a defensive play that showed the Orioles third baseman is in mid-season form.
The Baltimore Orioles are in the hunt for the AL East title and hold a 1.5 game lead over Detroit for the second wild card spot precisely because their offense does one thing better than any other baseball club: They mash so many dingers.
I can’t recall a player or a team being so unrepentant—so proud—of a bench-clearing brawl as Manny Machado and the Orioles were of Machado charging the mound and delivering a haymaker/DDT combo. But then, I can’t recall a player that so many around baseball have wanted to see take a punch to the face more than Yordano…
After throwing at him earlier in the game, Yordano Ventura plunked Manny Machado in the fifth inning, prompting Machado to quickly remove his helmet, limp to the mound, and light into Ventura. It looks like he landed a decent string of punches before he got pulled off the Royals pitcher.
Observe a moment of silence for the baseball destroyed by Manny Machado last night. The Orioles infielder bashed it to the train tracks at the Astros’ park.
The Nationals got exactly what they expected out of Jonathan Papelbon: a very good closer and an unrepentant asshole with a knack for pissing off his own teammates as much as his opponents. After Papelbon plunked Manny Machado in last night’s 4-3 Baltimore win, it was Bryce Harper, of all people, who sounded sick of…
Manny Machado "only" has a knee ligament sprain, which is good news for the Orioles and good news for baseball fans. The O's currently lead the AL East by 6.5 games, the largest division lead in baseball.
Can someone please get Albert Pujols a jetpack, or a Rascal or something? Jesus. For the second night in a row Manny Machado showed off his stupid-strong arm and for the second night in a row, poor Albert Pujols was the victim.
Albert Pujols isn't winning a 40-yard dash anytime soon but, still, Machado (not to mention all of his momentum) is halfway into the dugout by the time he's ready to throw this ball and Pujols still isn't anywhere near first base. The cross-diamond throw wasn't even in the dirt, it was at Steve Pearce's eyes. He…
MLB has suspended Baltimore's Manny Machado five games for throwing his bat during Sunday's game against Oakland. After two straight brushback pitches from Fernando Abad, Machado flung his bat in the general vicinity of third base—"accidentally," he said, but nah.
For the second time in three days, an angry Manny Machado caused the benches to clear between the Orioles and Athletics.
That is a headline you just read. Sometimes baseball is just the worst.
Orioles do-it-all third baseman Manny Machado was running out an infield hit in the seventh inning of today's game against the Rays, when he stepped awkwardly on the corner of the bag and collapsed in a heap. He was removed from the field on a stretcher.
Before Wednesday's game against the Astros, Manny Machado was hit by a batted ball during batting practice. He was fielding grounders at third base when Adam Jones hit a ball that struck Machado's elbow. He was helped off the field as a precaution, though later played in the game, going 0-3 with a walk. He was just…
The Orioles had the shift on against David Lough, and Lough tried to take advantage by bunting the ball to the left side to lead off the Royals' half of the third. O's pitcher Scott Feldman had help, with Manny Machado charging to make the play. But Feldman decided to take it himself.
With two outs in the sixth inning Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, Manny Machado made a sparkling play (after initially booting the ball) to throw out Luis Cruz at first. The play pulled him well into foul territory, harkening back to a similar play from fellow Orioles third baseman Brooks Robinson in the 1970…
This incredibly perceptive play by 20-year-old Manny Machado, which ended the top of the ninth and preceded his leadoff hit and eventual game-winning score a few minutes later, is impressive in that it's so simple and fluid. It's born of pure, instinctual intellect, the kind that scouts salivate over and fail to…
