Yesterday had to be the best day of Manny Machado’s life. He got to punch Yordano Ventura in the face, everyone around baseball applauded him for it, and now Jimmy’s Seafood is giving him free crabs for life because of it. Sure you don’t want to take a 99 MPH fastball to the ribs, but the outcome of it has been sensational. Ned Yost said the team is sick of Ventura’s shit, Adam Jones called Ventura a psychopath (bold move), and now Jimmy’s is hooking him up with the best seafood in Baltimore for not being S-A-W-F-T. A stamp of approval from Good Ol JR and Machado is in Heaven right now
PS: This has to be the most respected mound-charging of all time. Haven’t seen one person in baseball say anything about this one being bad for the game or any of that. Everyone hates Ventura. Dude throws 99, and his hardest pitch of the night was aimed directly at Machado. His catcher didn’t even try to stop Manny, and his teammates seem pretty fed up:
PS: Shout out to RDT for getting that viral internet gold last night. Kid works hard, shoot him a follow.
