Manny Machado Thanks Dodgers with a Departing Tone



In the beginning of the season, the Los Angeles Dodgers lost one of their superstars in short stop, Corey Seager. The hole in the field was almost as big as the hole in the lineup and as soon as Corey went down, Dodger fans were clamoring for a young superstar playing in Baltimore named Manny Machado.

The Dodgers front office repeated their success of 2017, by landing the top trade target of the summer in July, right after the All-Star break. In the 66 games played for the Dodgers, Manny produced:

  • At Bats: 267
  • Hits: 73
  • Runs: 36
  • RBIs: 42
  • Walks: 25
  • Strikeouts: 53
  • Home runs: 13
  • Batting Average: .273

His post season numbers were:

Series G AB H R RBI BB SO HR BA
NLDS 4 17 3 2 6 1 7 2 0.176
NLCS 7 27 8 5 3 2 6 1 0.296
World Series 5 22 4 2 3 1 5 0 0.182

Manny had his moments, both good and bad, but at least we got to see what he could do for our team. To say we’re not disappointed would be a lie, but we wish him luck as there are going to be plenty of teams waiting to throw hundreds of millions his way, starting off with the Yankees, Nationals, Cubs and Philly.

Here’s our favorite moment for Manny this season:

And here is his finely crafted Instagram message, where he showed gratitude to the franchise and fans.

Our followers on Twitter wanted to leave Manny some messages, as well:

  1. Good riddance. Way too entitled for me. No hustle with his attitude.
    Glad to see him go.

  2. Stop giving Hispanic baseball players a dirty name. WELCOME BACK COREY SEAGERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

  3. My birthday was in August and my youngest son bought me a Manny jersey. I never did wear it. I had no doubt he wouldn’t resign here so it’s all good. Can’t wait to have Corey Seager back. He ALWAYS hustles.

  4. As a Dodger faithful, when you don the Blue you’re fam. I didn’t always like his attitude towards the game but damn can the boy play. Its a gift and a curse. If you don’t come back I wish you nothing but the best and hopefully learn some humility. Athleticism fades, hard work doesn’t.

  5. No sweat. All he had to do was apologize for his actions and move on but he was/is too stubborn to do that. We all make mistakes….no big deal. Not torn up about his departure…..best of luck to him.

  6. Aside from his admiring drives from the batter’s box that didn’t make it over the wall, lack of hustle, hit and miss fielding, swinging at bad pitches, consistently arguing with umpires, base running blunders he was great. Get out of the Ravine!
