Manny Machado Has An Arm He’d Like To Show Off

On Wednesday night, Manny Machado did this to Albert Pujols:

It was an amazing play, and one we’ve come to expect from Manny. But just to prove it was no fluke, he did it again last night. And again, it was against Albert Pujols:

Both were incredible, and both throws came from about 10 feet into foul territory:

But what really made the second one special was Manny doing this:

There’s a man running to first base with no outs in a tie game in the 11th inning, and Manny Machado, about half a football field away from first base, is gonna take a moment to check out the baseball, gather himself, get his grip right, and then throw the runner out. I can’t wait to watch him do this for the next 15 years.

  1. I’ve watched both plays over & over … still so amazing. On ESPN, you have to vote for one Manny web gem vs the other Manny web gem. Very similar to the fantastic play he made last year in foul territory vs the Stankees. As long as he no longer throws his bat, everything will be ok in Mannyland.
