Lids and their poor-timing Manny Machado ad

Lids put out this tweet advertising Manny Machado and his comeback. (It was also put on their Facebook.) This comeback, I assume, is in reference to the season-ending injury he suffered last season.

But of course, if you mention Manny Machado’s name, the thing that pops up to your mind was his stupidity from last weekend.

Temper tantrums. Evil smiles. Throwing bats at people. That’s what comes to mind.

So is it a comeback from the five-game suspension that he was handed for all that?

I wasn’t the only one to think that. But very bad timing to advertise Machado when he’s in the middle of appealing a five-game suspension for throwing his bat at someone.

People on Facebook were harsh too. Look at the comments here, here and here.

And plus, the image shows him wearing the home jersey with the road cap. Odd choice.
