So Friday night Baltimore Orioles star Manny Machado took out Dustin Pedroia at second base while sliding into second base and attempting to break up a double play:

I don’t wanna watch a sport where this is a big deal. So he accidentally made contact with him during a slide. Shit happens. It’s sports. We’re Boston fans. We don’t need safe spaces.
But it’s become a big deal because a lot of Red Sox fans are whiny little naniburgers:
When is Machado going to be fined and suspended for spiking Pedroia? The guy has a history. Total dirtbag if you ask me.

Really a nasty thing that Manny Machado did to Dustin.Should be suspended.He pulls those things all the time.

Machado has been a punk for a while now. He deserves getting suspended

They should be doing it without having to face Machado, who should be suspended. Wake up, Boston media.

If Pedroia misses another inning, machado needs to be suspended

If Pedroia is injured, Machado should be suspended for the length of the injury. That was bush-league.

Oh for fuck’s sake. It’s baseball. He slid hard into second and Pedroia got a boo-boo. This is sports. When you play second based sometimes you get boo-boos. Did Machado start the slide late? Yup. He could’ve started a foot or two earlier. But once he started sliding, science took over. Not sure what he was supposed to do here. He slides into the big foot first:
Then obviously his foot travels upwards, because, ya know, there’s a base there. After that it comes into contact with Pedey’s calf:
And the first thing he did was get up and make sure he was alright.
So yea, if you’re a Red Sox fan whining about this like so many we’ve seen, just stop. You’re an embarrassment. Might I suggest a new franchise, such as the Montreal Canadiens, or whatever team LeBron James is playing for? You’ll fit in much better there.
