GIF: Manny Machado doing Manny Machado things

Oh, another ridiculous diving play by Manny Machado?

/yawn

It’s becoming old hat at this point. Despite the fact that yes, he did have a throwing error last night, Machado still had another sparkling night in the field. He made an impressive play ranging to his right in front of shortstop JJ Hardy, and then another (below) diving to his left.

Manny appeared to roll his wrist on the play, after which MASN broadcaster Gary Thorne gave every O’s fan watching a mild heart attack by harping on the “potential injury.”

“Oh, he looks hurt!”

“His wrist was just hanging, we’ll see how bad it is.”

“He’s over there grimacing.”

Thanks, Gary. Manny is fine.
