Watch Matt Barnes Get Ejected For Throwing At Manny Machado Despite Foul Ball

The Boston Red Sox’s payback on Manny Machado took bizarre form Sunday. The Baltimore Orioles third baseman drew the ire of the Red Sox on Friday for his hard slide on Dustin Pedroia, which injured the veteran second baseman. Boston didn’t retaliate Saturday, but the issue finally came to a head late in Sunday’s series finale. With one out in the eighth inning, Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes appeared to throw at Machado’s head — although the ball ended up hitting Machado’s bat for a foul ball.

Barnes immediately was ejected by home plate umpire Andy Fletcher despite the ball hitting Machado’s bat. And if you’re wondering if a pitcher can be tossed while technically dealing a strike, the answer is “yes,” as it was pretty clear Barnes was targeting Machado.

Could Manny Machado be one of the all-time great third basemen? | FOX Sports

Manny moving to shortstop seems like a fanciful idea to me.

Yankees Mailbag: Manny Machado at third base in 2019? - NY Daily News

This is a free agent signing I can see for the Yankees. Of course, the Orioles will have a chance to prevent it.

What does the 2018 Yankees infield look like? — Adam G. @adamGobj

We’re still 18 months away from that, but my guess would be Gary Sanchez behind the plate, Greg Bird at first base, Gleyber Torres at second base, Didi Gregorius at shortstop and Starlin Castro at third base. Castro could remain at second and Torres could move to third, but I think the Yankees envision Torres playing second base going forward, so they’d be more likely to put him there.

Chase Headley is signed through 2018, but if he’s not traded this winter, I can see the Yankees trying to move him a year from now when he has only one year remaining on his deal — especially if Torres is ready.

After 2018? Manny Machado plays third base.
