Pedroia won't play 'baseball police' on slide

The Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia will leave it to others to judge whether Manny Machado's controversial slide into second base Friday night was legal or against the rules.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

In phone call today, John Farrell and Joe Torre had difference of opinion about slide rule as relates to Pedroia-Machado affair. Torre believes Pedroia didn't attempt to turn double play, therefore no interference call. Farrell contends Pedroia couldn't have attempted double play because of Machado slide.

If Dustin Pedroia thinks Manny Machado's slide was dirty, he isn't saying. Pedroia was worried because contact was made to knee that he had surgery on in offseason, but also said it's his job to take hits while trying to turn double plays.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Dustin Pedroia is "sore," manager John Farrell said, but early indication from Red Sox is it "could've been a lot worse."

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

John Farrell referred to Manny Machado play as an "extremely late slide." Asked if it was dirty, Farrell repeated that it was a "late slide."

Orioles 2, Red Sox 0: If not for Dustin Pedroia getting spiked by Manny Machado and hobbling off field in the eighth inning, we would be talking about another sensational start by Baltimore right-hander Dylan Bundy, who blanked Boston for seven innings before giving way to bullpen. Bundy (1.37 ERA in four starts) held Red Sox to six hits, and Orioles won for 11th time in 15 games.

MLB hot starts to invest in: Trey Mancini

You already knew about Chris Davis and Mark Trumbo being capable of hitting 40-50 homers. Mancini could put himself in that group as well, if he gets the playing time.
