Boston Red Sox Ace Chris Sale Punishment Coming For Throwing At Machado According To Reports

Boston Red Sox Ace Chris Sale Punishment Coming For Throwing At Machado According To Reports

According to multiple reports Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale will be receiving some sort of punishment for throwing behind Baltimore Orioles third basemen Manny Machado’s during Tuesday nights game

If Sale is indeed suspended or even punished there will be some pissed of Boston players given that the Orioles have committed some of their own actions that deserve some sort of punishment as well.

One instance is when Bundy hit Mookie Betts on Monday.

Another instance occurred after Sale threw at Machado with the Orioles throwing at rookie Andrew Benintendi‘s head.

Throwing at a player intentionally is part of the game, going for the head or the knees is not called for though and deserves punishment which Matt Barnes received for throwing at Machado back in Baltimore. Remember Barnes received a four-game suspension for the pitch below.

If Sale is suspended both Baltimore pitchers should be as well.  Major League Baseball has to be consistent on this, cannot suspend one without suspending the others. An updated tweet for Ken Rosenthal backtracked from the initial tweet above with the following.

According to Red Sox manager John Farrell he said that no one from Major League Baseball or Joe Torre stating that Sale would receive a punishment. Also MLB decline to issue a warning ahead of Wednesday’s game to either teams despite all of the tension, they did however tell both teams to stop all of the rhetoric and actions.
