Pedroia won't play 'baseball police' on slide

The Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia will leave it to others to judge whether Manny Machado's controversial slide into second base Friday night was legal or against the rules.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

In phone call today, John Farrell and Joe Torre had difference of opinion about slide rule as relates to Pedroia-Machado affair. Torre believes Pedroia didn't attempt to turn double play, therefore no interference call. Farrell contends Pedroia couldn't have attempted double play because of Machado slide.

Anybody home? Big Papi gets award via FedEx

David Ortiz received his Silver Slugger Award in an awkward manner as it was shipped via FedEx rather than being delivered to him ceremoniously.

If Dustin Pedroia thinks Manny Machado's slide was dirty, he isn't saying. Pedroia was worried because contact was made to knee that he had surgery on in offseason, but also said it's his job to take hits while trying to turn double plays.

Dustin Pedroia is "sore," manager John Farrell said, but early indication from Red Sox is it "could've been a lot worse."

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

John Farrell referred to Manny Machado play as an "extremely late slide." Asked if it was dirty, Farrell repeated that it was a "late slide."

Orioles 2, Red Sox 0: If not for Dustin Pedroia getting spiked by Manny Machado and hobbling off field in the eighth inning, we would be talking about another sensational start by Baltimore right-hander Dylan Bundy, who blanked Boston for seven innings before giving way to bullpen. Bundy (1.37 ERA in four starts) held Red Sox to six hits, and Orioles won for 11th time in 15 games.

Price back on track in latest bullpen session

David Price long-tossed from 120 feet Thursday and felt strong enough in the bullpen Friday to incorporate his breaking pitch for the first time off a mound since a March elbow injury.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

John Farrell thought it was important to meet with Chris Sale today to "give him thoughts into what went into" decision to not send him back out for ninth inning Thursday in Toronto. Farrell explained that closer Craig Kimbrel's recent dominance played big role. But if score had been 4-0, not 1-0, Sale likely would've started ninth.
