Dylan Buell/Getty ImagesManny Machado said the Baltimore Orioles informed him of his impending trade after removing him before the fifth inning of a July 15 game against the Texas Rangers but wouldn't tell him his destination.On Sunday Tug McGraw Jersey
, Bob Nightengale of USA Today provided comments from the new Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop about the three days of uncertainty, which included an appearance in the 2018 MLB All-Star Game for the American League, before his move to Los Angeles was announced Wednesday."That's when they had told me I had been traded," Machado said. "They said they pretty much had a deal done. They just wanted to wait until after the break to get all of the medical stuff done. They kept me up to date as much as they could, but they wouldn't tell me where I was going. Only that I was going somewhere."The 26-year-old Florida native made his debut for the Dodgers on Friday night, and he's enjoyed a hot start with his new club. He's collected five hits in his first 13 at-bats across three games.Machado told Nightengale getting traded from the O's, who selected him with the third overall pick in the 2010 draft, caused an outpouring of emotion despite the constant rumors in recent months."It was so emotional; it just hit me," he said. "I was in that one little corner of the clubhouse for so long. All of those feelings came back. It was tough. So I stormed out of there. None of my teammates were in there Drew Hutchison Jersey
, but I didn't want anyone to see me like that."While his focus now is trying to help the Dodgers chase a World Series title鈥?I'd love to help make up that difference and bring a championship to L.A."鈥攖he four-time All-Star selection's future remains up in the air.He's set to become a free agent at season's end. He'll headline the group of available players alongside Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper.That means his stay with the Dodgers could be a lot shorter than his time with the Orioles. But Los Angeles is never afraid to throw money around, so it should be a contender to keep him, especially if he helps carry the team to the 2018 title. MIAMI (AP) — The Yankees blew a two-run lead, committed three errors, struck out 11 times and lost Wednesday night to the last-place Marlins.Bring on Baltimore.Lance Lynn gave up five runs in the sixth inning, and New York’s four-game winning streak ended with a sloppy 9-3 defeat.Trailing first-place Boston by nine games in the AL East, the Yankees can’t afford losses to last-place teams, and manager Aaron Boone knows it. After a day off New York will begin a four-game series at Baltimore, which has the worst record in baseball.“We didn’t do a lot great down here Larry Bowa Jersey
,” Boone said. “We’ve got to get after it starting Friday. Obviously these are important. We’ve got to play better than we did tonight. We’re getting into that crunch time.”The loss came hours after All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman went on the disabled list with left knee tendinitis. He joined three injured regulars on the Yankees’ disabled list, and the offense looked depleted as New York split the two-game series.The Yankees totaled 10 hits in the final 17 innings against Miami.Giancarlo Stanton, playing in Miami for the first time since the Marlins traded him last November, went 1 for 3 with an RBI and finished 3 for 9 in the series. He remained at 299 career homers.Lynn (8-9) had a 2-0 lead in the sixth, but Miguel Rojas‘ three-run homer put the Marlins ahead to stay.“A couple of infield hits, and then a home run,” Lynn said. “I made one bad pitch, and it costs you three runs.”What made his fastball to Rojas a bad pitch?“It went over the fence,” Lynn said.The homer was the 10th for Rojas http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-jim-bunning-jersey
, who had never hit more than one in a season before this year.Attendance was 25,547, including lots of Yankees fans, and many of them had departed by the time Miami’s J.T. Riddle delivered a two-run, pinch-hit homer in the eighth.Neil Walker drove in two runs for New York with a double and a sacrifice fly, and Stanton had an RBI infield hit in the seventh.Miami’s Trevor Richards allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings and struck out nine. Jarlin Garcia (2-2) retired both batters he faced.Lynn was charged with five runs for the second game in a row. He worked 5 1/3 innings.BRAIN CRAMPA mental lapse cost the Yankees in the seventh. When Miami’s Brian Anderson tried to steal second and Starlin Castro took ball four, catcher Austin Romine made a needless and wild throw to second. That allowed Anderson to advance to third, and he scored an unearned run on a groundout.SLUMPYankees first baseman Greg Bird went 0 for 10 in the series, dropping his batting average to .202.“It’s not fun going out and not performing Jim Thome Jersey
,” he said. “You’ve just got to keep going in anything, in life. That’s what I fall back on.”FAMILY MOTIVATIONRojas’ mother, sister and grandfather, who all live in his native Venezuela, attended the game.“They don’t spend that much time with me here in the States,” he said, “but when they come here I try to play with a little more intensity, because I want them to enjoy their time here.”TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: RHP David Robertson, who has been nursing a tender shoulder http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-scott-kingery-jersey
, said he was available to pitch.UP NEXTYankees: LHP CC Sabathia (7-4, 3.32 ERA) is scheduled to start for the first time since Aug. 12 at Baltimore on Friday. Sabathia has been sidelined with right knee inflammation. The Yankees are only 6-6 this year against the Orioles.Marlins: RHP Elieser Hernandez (2-6, 5.08) is scheduled to start Thursday when Miami opens a four-game series at home against first-place Atlanta.
