San Diego won the game 5-3 to enhance to 24-17 on the year, handing the NL Central-leading Cardinals their 18th loss of the season. While it was just one video game of 162, baseball fans practically lost it on Twitter Sunday evening over Machados controversial slide. The maneuver was plainly intentional, the concern of whether it was filthy or not is in concern.
If Machados takeout slide of Edman was filthy or not, see for yourself.
As far as Padres fans, they are defending Machados slide like he is “Mr. Padre” Tony Gwynn himself.
So can you just move 20 ft far from the bag now or is Manny Machado still the most significant jerk in the league?
