Brewers fans took the opportunity to express their displeasure for Machado on Wednesday, and he responded in kind.

Manny Machado found another way to upset Brewers fans


Maybe don't boo Manny Machado.

Brewers fans didn't take that advice on Wednesday and booed the $300-million player as the Padres were taking on Milwaukee at San Diego's spring training facility.

Machado promptly homered in the same at-bat.

Brewers fans got all they could handle of Machado last season during the National League Championship Series when the third baseman was playing with the Dodgers.

The team accused Machado as being part of Los Angeles' plan to steal signs during the series, and the 26-year-old kicked first baseman Jesus Aguilar when he was passing him on a groundout.

The Padres and Brewers will face off for the first time in the regular season in San Diego on June 17. The teams will play at Miller Park in Milwaukee in a three-game series on Sept. 17.

The reception is likely to be the same from the Brewers' faithful.
