CARLSBAD Brandon McCarthy Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Andrew Friedman knew he was getting a player who didn’t hustle all the time when he traded for Manny Machado. Still, the Los Angeles Dodgers president of baseball operations was willing to acquire the four-time All-Star infielder because his good points outweighed the bad.“raded for him,” Friedman said Tuesday at the general managers’ meetings. “It’s not like it was a secret. I think it’s never a fun thing to watch, at least from my perspective and vantage point, but I do think it’s important to dig further into that, and I think there are times when guys do that and they don’t really care. And I think there are other times where guys do it and they really do care, and by care I mean the effort they put into their work, the type of teammate they are, and Manny checks all those boxes.”Machado is among the top two free agents on the market along with outfielder Bryce Harper after a 3½ -month stay with the Dodgers. The 26-year-old was acquired from the Orioles in mid-July and took over the shortstop job that opened when Corey Seager tore an elbow ligament in late April that required season-ending surgery.Machado hit .273 with 13 homers and 42 RBIs in 66 games , and the Dodgers won their second straight NL pennant. He hit .227 with three homers and 12 RBIs in 16 postseason games, including .182 (4 for 22) with three RBIs in the five-game World Series loss to Boston.He kicked Milwaukee first baseman Jesus Aguilar near the ankle as he jogged out a groundout during the NL Championship Series, leading to a $10,000 fine, and was criticized for a pair of hard slides into Brewers shortstop Orlando Arcia, prompting Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich to call Machado “a dirty player.”Machado stood at home plate watching a fly ball in Game 3 that bounced off a wall and became a 368-foot single, spiked Boston first baseman Steve Pearce in Game 4 and fell to a knee striking out against Chris Sale in Game 5, ending the Dodgers’ second straight World Series loss.“So would I rather see more effort as I’m watching? Of course. I think anyone would say that,” Friedman said. “But I think that in and of itself isn’t as critical of a dynamic as it would be if he didn’t care Jose Ramirez Jersey , if he didn’t put in the work, didn’t put in the effort, and that in our 3 1/2 months of being around him was really strong.”Friedman would not say how he would fill the void if Farhan Zaidi, the Dodgers general manager and No. 2 baseball operations official for the past four years, left for San Francisco.“We’ll talk about that if it happens,” Friedman said.Hours later, the Giants announced Zaidi as their new president of baseball operations.Friedman said he is confident the Dodgers will reach a new agreement with Dave Roberts, their manager for the past three seasons.“The conversations have been pleasant and they have been ongoing,” Friedman said. HOUSTON (AP) — Chris Sale is set to make his next scheduled start for the Boston Red Sox. And now Ronald Acuna Jr. Jersey , he knows that will be in the World Series.Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Thursday that Sale threw on flat ground again earlier in the day and was feeling better since a stomach illness led to him spending a night in the hospital.“So he’s ready for his next start,” Cora said before Game 5 of the AL Championship Series.Boston’s 4-1 victory over the Houston Astros put the Red Sox in the World Series for the first time since 2013. Sale is expected to start the opener Tuesday night at Fenway Park against the Los Angeles Dodgers or Milwaukee Brewers.Sale was initially slated to pitch Game 5 of the ALCS on Thursday, but was ruled out because the illness left him weak. If the Red Sox had lost, Sale would have been lined up to start a Game 6 back home on Saturday.Instead, his teammates closed out the series, and the lefty ace gets more time to rest and recover.Sale has been regaining strength since his release Monday from Massachusetts General Hospital, where he spent Sunday night for observation.The club hasn’t specified Sale’s ailment or treatment, though Cora has said it was nothing serious.
