It’s safe to no one will be confusing Manny Machado with Johnny Hustle.
Machado has a history of not legging it out of the batter’s box, and the star shortstop added to his lack-of-effort collection Friday night in Game 3 of the World Series.
With the Los Angeles Dodgers owning a 1-0 lead over the Boston Red Sox in the sixth inning at Dodger Stadium, Machado surely thought he doubled his team’s lead when he scorched a screamer to left fielder. The four-time All-Star’s pimping showcase ended up looking wildly foolish, though, as the ball clanged off the wall, resulting in a long single for Machado.
Given Machado’s laundry list of highlights such as this, Twitter unsurprisingly let him have it.
Maybe get some pep in your step next time, Manny.
