There will be plenty of Manny Machado articles this offseason. Who will sign him? Could it be the Cardinals? This is not the article I write about.
Manny Machado has been insufferable this postseason. It is incredible.
As many of you may be aware, the term “heel” traditionaly stems from professional wrestling. If I had to guess, it comes from the term “heel turn”, which means to suddenly change direction. Cinematically, a heel-turn represents a more internal change of direction of a character, generally from good to evil. In wrestling, the heel is the foil to the hero. He is the villain. He breaks rules. He cheats. He plays dirty.
And so we move on to Manny Machado. Machado was known for some fantastic plays. His defense is astounding. He was fun to watch!
And then... HEEL TURN:
This was years ago, though. It mostly left the public’s conscience. Until now, on MLB’s biggest stage.
That looks pretty bad. Earlier in the series he also had a pretty hard slide that was deemed a rule violation. What caused this change in behavior? No one knows. But every series needs a good villain. Now there is one.
