Machado's 'temper tantrum' not OK: Umpires association

  • LEADING OFF Stanton returns to Yanks Machado appeals ban

After the San Diego Padres third baseman said he'd appeal his one-game suspension, citing a lack of precedent for a suspension over arguing balls and strikes, the MLB Umpires Association clapped back at Machado with a fiery statement.

The MLBUA posted the statement to Twitter, along with the hashtags that included, "Disappointed", "LeadByExample", "Violence", "TemperTantrum", "Nonsense" and "MakeanExampleof".

Manny Machado is suspended one game and fined an undisclosed amount for "aggressively arguing and making contact with Umpire Bill Welke following his ejection in the top of the fifth inning of Saturday's game".

"Mr. Machado is appealing his suspension and we do not believe it is appropriate for the union representing Major League Umpires to comment on the discipline of players represented by the Players Association, just as it would not be appropriate for the Players Association to comment on disciplinary decisions made with respect to umpires".

However the MLB Umpires Association have issued an angry statement arguing that Machado had been treated leniently. "We also believe it is inappropriate to compare this incident to the extraordinarily serious issue of workplace violence".

Machado declined comment when asked if he thought the umpires' tweet was unprofessional. "We're going to appeal it, and we think we've got a good case".

"Honestly, baseball's been going on for a lot of years, been going on for a hundred some years and it's going to continue to keep going and we go out there and we play baseball and we enjoy ourselves every day", he responded.

The Padres signed Machado, 26, to a 10-year, $300 million contract during spring training.

Machado isn't the only one upset with how Major League Baseball handled things, either.
