Manny Machado, who spent the first six and half years of his or her career with the Orioles, makes his return to Fenway Park on Tuesday as the Dodgers face the Red Sox in Game 1 of the World Series.
He'll face a team, and a pitcher in boston ace Chris Sale, who had some really bad blood last year, bad blood that included and epic postgame rant (Sports Illustrated counted 22 curses) after sale tried to hit him with a pitch that ended

Some of the things he said:
That's coward stuff. That's stuff you do not (bleeping) do.
To get thrown at my head, to get thrown at (bleeping) everywhere – I've got my respect for that organization, that coaching staff (it's a new coaching staff now), and everyone over there.
If you're going to (expletive) hit me, go ahead, (expletive) hit me. You know, do not let (expletive) keep lingering around and (expletive) around. Keep (expletive) trying to hit people. That's (expletive) bull.
MLB should do something about it. (Expletive) pitchers go out there with their (expletive) balls in their hands and throwing 100 mph trying to hit people. I got a (expletive) bat too.
This whole thing is stemmed from the Red Sox being upset about how Machado clipped Dustin Pedroia in the knee while sliding into second base (the brewers and their fans now know exactly what Boston is feeling).
The Red Sox then threw at Machado in the next two games they played against the Orioles, only to miss him both times. Machado's legs and get tossed from the game.
Sale and not to say anything about the incident when Monday, telling reporters:
"We have bigger things to worry about on both sides, on their side and on our side. We're dedicated to winning this World Series and bringing a championship to our city. We're not worried about any individual player.
Yasiel Puig is the.
