What evidence do you have that he "was an ass" in Baltimore? He's been widely regarded through baseball as a mentor to young Latin players, and no one less than your 2018 WS MVP Steve Pearce calls Machado "the best person in the game". I wonder how much of your opinion of him is based on actual fact and how much is skewed by clickbait media claiming he "ended Pedroia's career". (He didn't. Pedroia rushed back from a second knee surgery against all medical advice and missed all if five games after "the slide".)Interesting. That is def not my take and I go to about 20 games a year. They guy was an A$$ in Baltimore then comes here and one of the first games I see with my then 13 year old he blows off a popup off 3rd and when the fans get on him a little he waves his hand at us like "I don't care what you think". The Padres are my second favorite team and I hope they win this year but I've never once rooted for "The Loser" . My son and I just sit there quietly when he comes to bat. Last game I went without him he texted me "How's the game going?" I said "They're down 2-1 but at least Machado has struck out twice." LOL!
