Chris Sale 'Not Losing Sleep' Over Manny Machado Incident

04 May, 2017, 01:10 | Author: Felix Jensen

Frankly, it's hard to blame him.

The Boston Red Sox issued an apology this morning after reports of racial taunting at their game last night.

Baltimore Orioles' Jonathan Schoop, left, is congratulated by Adam Jones after scoring on a double by Caleb Joseph during the fifth inning of a baseball game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park in Boston, Monday, May 1, 2017.

Machado struck out in the at-bat in question, but homered over the Green Monster in the seventh inning to cut the Orioles' deficit to 3-2. "Where I come from, if you say things like that, you put on the gloves and you go after it".

On Tuesday, Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia said: "You get called names, N-word, all kinds of stuff when you go to Boston".

"My biggest thing is I just let people be who they are". It's (bleep) bullshit. It's (bleep) bullshit. Major League Baseball should do something about it. (Bleep) pitchers out there with (bleep) balls in their hand, throwing 100 miles per hour, trying to hit people. I've got a fucking bat too. "But I think there has to be a level of decency when you're trying to do it, because there are other fans that don't want to hear it, shouldn't hear it". Maddon said. "But at some point, you've got to do something about it".

"That's stuff that you don't f- do", Machado told reporters after the game. "I've lost mad respect for that team and that organization", he said (see full recap).

In the first inning Sale threw behind Manny Machado as apparent retaliation for Machado spiking Dustin Pedroia in the calf two weeks ago. While the Sox-Orioles rivalry shouldn't automatically result in racism, "for some white Americans, that's often where they go if they're angry", said University of Hartford sociologist Woody Doane.

Jets not picking up Calvin Pryor's 5th-year option
On the trading block for a while, Pryor has been a disappointment since being selected in the first round of the 2014 draft. Those two picks basically said that the Jets were done with Pryor, even before they decided not to pick up the option.

- The Red Sox ace now has 63 strikeouts through his first six starts, which ties Randy Johnson for the most strikeouts in a pitcher's first six starts with a team. "I'm not going to lose any sleep over it tonight".

They're still thinking that the slide that I did when I had no intention of hurting anybody, " Machado said. It was the first against the Red Sox since August 6, 2011, against Texas.

"I didn't really have a good one".

Police Lt. Mike McCarthy said a fan threw a bag of peanuts at the Orioles' dugout and hit a police officer posted nearby, not the center fielder. I don't know what he said.

"It's nothing new to any of us", Atlanta Braves outfielder Matt Kemp said. He also said someone threw peanuts at him. Disappointing, too, given the meaningful discourse earlier in the day.

Experiences like Jones' are common in Boston, though rarely get the level of attention drawn by a celebrity, said Tanisha Sullivan, president of the Boston chapter of the NAACP.
