Manny Machado Clarifies \'Johnny Hustle\' Comment 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Nov 21, 2018 1:00 pm

Manny Machado is addressing comments he made during the postseason that have become a story line during his free agency.

When asked by Ken Rosenthal about his failure to run hard at all times, Machado famously said: \"I\'m not the type of player that\'s going to be \'Johnny Hustle.\'\"

\"When I was asked that question, I was definitely on the defensive, and I was wrong to answer it the way that I did, because looking back, it doesn\'t come across how I meant it,\" Machado said. \"For me, I was trying to talk about how I\'m not the guy who is eye wash. There\'s a difference between fake hustle for show and being someone who tries hard to win. I\'ve always been the guy who does whatever he can to win for his team.

\"But I know how I said it and how that came across, and it\'s something I take responsibility for. I look forward to talking with each GM and owner that we meet with about that, or any other questions they have.\"
