It wasn’t long ago that a fan a Dodgers fan got Manny Machado’s attention with some heckling at Chavez Ravine. You might remember the video where Manny bets his entire $300 million contract that he received from the Padres.

In the heckling video, the Dodgers fan congratulates Manny on his 10-year deal and jokes about him getting the next 10 Octobers off of work. Machado then comes back with a bold challenge.
I’ll bet you my contract that we win a World Series before you guys do.
If you remember, the Padres signed Machado with a lucrative 10 year, $300 million deal back in February of 2019. The Dodgers just eliminated the Padres from the postseason with a dominating three-game sweep in the Division Series. So if San Diego is going to win a World Series, it won’t be this year.
So what happens if the Dodgers do win it all this year? Does Manny Machado track down the fan and pay him what he owes him? Probably not. Machado was recently asked about the exchange by Dennis Lin of The Atheltic. Manny feigned ignorance when reminded of the bet though, saying that he would have to go back and check Twitter.
