Who was at fault in the Red Sox-Orioles weekend battles? - Mon, 24 Apr 2017
Who is wrong in the unnecessary feud between the Red Sox and Orioles over Manny Machado’s slide into Dustin Pedroia? If you’re going to apply the unwritten rules, then at least execute them properly. If a Sox pitcher had hit Machado in a meaty part of his body on Saturday-one day after he unintentionally injured Pedroia with a slide into second base, not two-Machado almost certainly would have accepted his fate.
