MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred is making himself look worse and worse every time he opens up his mouth. His latest comments about the World Series trophy being a "piece of metal" apparently enraged Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner. The veteran did not hold back in his criticism of Manfred.
This is one of those clips that has to actually be watched to be believed. Turner doesn't hold back when he says Manfred is wildly out of touch with the players, and that "the only thing devaluing that trophy is that it says Commissioner on it."
This is a "no holds barred" approach from Turner, who goes on to confirm his belief that the Astros don't deserve the 2017 trophy. His words echo those of players from all over MLB. He's the only one thus far to go after Manfred this strongly, though.
As long as Manfred keeps opening his mouth and making this all worse, players like Turner will only get louder. And this is all before the season has even begun.
