The Yankees baseball operations and scouting departments are “lukewarm” on free agent Manny Machado, per Andy Martino of SNY.tv. Brian Cashman has not been shy about his pursuit of Machado in the past, but the third-baseman-turned-shortstop’s antics during this postseason may have slowed what otherwise could have been a more aggressive pursuit of the infielder in free agency. This isn’t to say the Yankees won’t end up signing Machado, but the questioning of Machado’s hustle and baseball ethic certainly allow the Yankees, as well as other teams, to take a more understandably patient approach in regards to his free agency.

Good, I don't want him. He's got talent but no heart and I think his antics during the playoffs might cost him some money in free agency. He'll still get paid but he may turn some suitors off, as in this case, the Yankees.

Machado is a dirty player. No two ways about it.

Yup. Total penis.
Hope the Dodgers don’t throw any money at him.
Doubt they will with Seager returning, but...

Yep, can’t defend that one. Pretty stupid.

Oh please ... if we knew the real history of what has happened to the Stanley Cup ... this wouldn't even be reported.

The real one is in the Hall of Fame. That's almost certainly a replica. Besides, the Red Sox have a few now. They can spare one. :)

Probably an undercover Yankees fan did it... :wink:

Probably not as big a deal as it’s being made out to be. Apparently, it’s sort of a tradition in Boston to throw beers at the players for them to drink; just not in anger (not that I think it’s a great tradition). Maybe it won’t be so popular going forward.

Now, before we go any further, I just have to state the obvious and say that beers are always thrown during championship parades. Especially in Boston (stares at Gronk) and they’re usually welcome. Sometimes players will drink them.

Today, players did not appear to want them thrown, and it’s important for fans to keep hold of their full beers if it’s not agreed on by both sides before they’re tossed, but there’s at least a way to see how a drunk fan didn’t understand that these players on this team weren’t so into it when in the past this has been a fun, viral moment during a parade.

Since we’re talking about thrown beers...

Dear Yankees fans who know how to read: STOP THROWING BEER AT PEOPLE
https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.golfdi ... people/amp

In the past week, the Yankees have won two playoff games and lost three. They’re going home, but that doesn’t matter. Nor does the fact it happened at the hands of their dreaded rivals. Nor anything else really. Win or lose, the result has been the same: Following every game this postseason, Yankees fans—riders of 27 Word Series coattails and the sports equivalent of a My Super Sweet 16 birthday celebrant—have gone completely, unequivocally feral.
But this year has seen the advent of an even more charming trend: Throwing $12 dollar beers. At opposing fans. At opposing players. At their own mothers if they accidentally brought Diet Coke instead of the regular swill down to their lightless basement lairs.
