I don’t have the game on, but WhiteSoxTalk is at U.S. Cellular Field, and witnessed a blatant case of criminality perpetrated on our national pastime at the Orioles-White Sox game:
Here’s the video:
Lucky that kid wasn’t in Philly. I can’t imagine what they would have done to him. At least we know they wouldn’t have hit him anyway. They can’t hit crap right now.
The Orioles and Dodgers are expected to finally complete involving SS/3B Manny Machado, ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports. The Orioles will receive five prospects from the Dodgers. We’ll have more details about the other players involved later.
Machado, 26, is in the final year of his contract, so this is currently a rental for the first-place Dodgers. Machado ended the first half batting .315/.387/.575 with 24 home runs, 65 RBI, 48 runs scored, and eight stolen bases in 413 plate appearances. In Los Angeles, he will handle shortstop, allowing Chris Taylor to move over to second base.
