Manny Machado the Dodgers shortstop responds to people criticizing hustle by saying it’s “not my cup of tea.” More

"If that's dirty, that's dirty", Machado said, according to MLB.com. Repeat it over and over and over again, you're just a dirty player.

Machado also said that he and Aguilar have been friends for years, calling the Brewers slugger a "great guy". We're trying to win.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell wasn't concerned the incident would distract from his team's focus in the best-of-seven series.

Did Machado intentionally come in spikes high on the veteran second baseman?

In a game that loves its heroes and despises its villains, Machado is fast becoming baseball's No. 1 villain.

The Dodgers acquired Machado from Baltimore this season for their playoff push, and to replace injured shortstop Corey Seager.

Machado defended himself following the game.
