    I don't think Derek Norris deserved two backswings from a smirking and non-remorseful Machado either, but that's what he got.

    trouble is, Donaldson was no longer in the game. He'd been lifted for Alberto Callaspo.

    Let me preface this by saying that I don't intend it as a defense of Machado, but rather as a general statement. Pitchers need to quit taking more than one shot at a guy to whom they are trying to send a message. If you can't hit him the first time, that's on you. I'm tired of seeing these hacks going after guys multiple times. All it does is continue to escalate the situation instead of ending it.

    His antics were pretty awful but why the backswings? Seems those are the catchers fault for being to close. I wouldn't ask the catcher if he's okay. I'd want him to move the f back. If I'm in the batters box and can hit the catcher the catcher needs to move back.

    I wish more hitters would throw their bats at the pitcher in retaliation for getting beaned. Why is it cool for a pitcher to use his "weapon" of choice to try and harm a batter, but the batter has zero right to return the favor? And I don't care about the semantics of what causes more harm. I'm sure getting hit with a 50 mph bat is a tad more dangerous than getting hit with a 100 mph fastball, but it's irrelevant because BOTH ARE DANGEROUS AND SHOULDN'T BE HAPPENING. And what's with everyone jumping on him for trying to hit innocent Josh Donaldson? That's the EXACT SAME thing that happens when an innocent batter gets beaned because his idiot pitcher decided to throw at someone last inning.


    That being said, all of Machado's other actions, especially not apologizing to Norris, is that of an immature douche.

    As a fan of the Orioles and Machado, I really hope this doesn't mark the beginning of "Manny being Manny" Part 2.

    The whole thing is ridiculous but I'd be willing to bet that this is forgotten in a weeks time. Well, until he possibly does something else down the road in which it'll get dug up again.

    If the league does not suspend him for a minimum of 3 games then they are pus ass-hats. Because this is not going to go away anytime soon. And they play the A's again in Oakland the weekend of July 18-20. And the show will still go on
