Girardi threw up his hands to the crowd after being ejected. Surprised to a see a manager react to the crowd like that. Seems like he lost his cool.

Well, Bochy has clearly given up on this game, Casilla and his 50% chance of allowing 10 runs (yes, 10) has taken the mound.

Joaquin Benoit is pathetic.

10 homers allowed in his last 14 appearances. 10 of the last 12 hits allowed have been homers. Yanks take the lead with homers on consecutive pitches.

The kid is the real deal, he was definitely rushed but the potential has always been there. Im not surprised, hes definitely gonna show flashes.

I have a problem buying this sentiment. He's like the 6th kid from that 2010 1st round draft class to be in the majors this league. Its like its a cardinal sin that the Orioles brought up a top notch prospect, as opposed to bringing in yet another veteran with nothing left.

First HS player. Harper is better and even he is scuffling now and Machado didn't even match Harper's numbers in the minors. Going after a fake playoff run and ruining a huge prospects' development is a terrible mistake.

Fake playoff run? 5.5 back in the AL EAST and in a virtual tie for the 2nd Wild Card spot. Nothing fake about that. Frankly its coming off as how dare the Orioles doing something relevant in the regards to the playoffs. The kid was on a tear in the minors, why not give him a shot on the big stage? Harper is the same age and don't give me that bs that at least he went to college. Haters keep on hating.

Going to college for a year def counts for something. Not fair just to look at age when comparing to Harper as he finished HS a year earlier. Not to mention comparing to Harper is stupid because Harper is a once in a generation prospect, Machado is not. I don't hate the move but to blindly agree with it is dumb.

Harper is the same age and don't give me that bs that at least he went to college. Haters keep on hating.
It's a real run based on the standings, but it's fake in that I don't see how they can sustain it. I don't know how they've done it this long. It really must be Oriole magic because the team has the talent of a team that should be 10 under.

Machado in bigs now is a right time because he needs to see MLB level to adjust his skill set. Despite many people think he is next AROD, he is nowhere near to Arod's level. Machado's best year for power should be about the same as Cal Ripken Jr.

Orioles have enough offense to carry themselves into post season so Machado wont be under pressure.

I think he's in the majors because the Orioles have, what I have to assume is, the worst production out of 1B/3B in the majors. And normally when you have bad production at those positions its is because you have guys who are weak with the bat but strong in the field. Well the Orioles are somehow weak with the bat and even worse in the field.
