As Matt Dery pointed out on Twitter, the most interesting thing about this video is Rick Manning not falling for Carrasco’s fake tripping routine and nearly admonishing him for doing what got him suspended last time.
“He didn’t fall down. That was intentional,” Manning said.
See it for yourself.
In the end, the umpire might have done him a favor as Carrasco gave up 7 runs and 2 homers in helping the Indians to a 14-1 shellacking at the hands of the New York Yankees.
