Manny Machado has his own brand of salsa now

Jun 20, 2014, 1:43 PM EDT


It’s not exactly ideal timing considering his recent suspension and overall struggles this season, but Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has his own brand of salsa coming out, to be revealed Tuesday.

Here’s more from the Baltimore Sun:

Machado will be formally unveiling his Machado’s Salsa brand on Tuesday afternoon at 12:45 p.m. at the Pikesville Giant, located at 3757 Old Court Road … The salsas, which come in mild and medium flavors, will be available exclusively at area Giant stores, and appears to be a limited run.

The salsa is a product of PLB Sports, which appears to have the market cornered on celebrity-endorsed food products. Their client list includes Patriots’ star Rob Gronkowski (Gronk Flakes), Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia (black bean salsa), and Steelers’ Brett “The Diesel” Kiesel salsa.

Not really a great sign for a salsa when it comes in only “mild” and “medium.” But whatever. You can order it online here.

    Heard the HOT was cancelled as it causes you to loose your cool on the baseball field!

    Does it get mad and offended if you dip a chip in it and thinks you dipped the chip too hard?

    Lol, how does one “loose” their cool? Is it because the cool was loosened by a hard tag?

    I should take Tuesday off work and head down and see if he will sign my bat…

    Miguel Cabrera did this already with PLB. Called “Miggy’s Salsa”
    Limited time, limited location.

    He also has another product he endorses in Maryland Crab Seasoned Popcorn. Matt Wieters endorses Crab Seasoned Sunflower seeds through the same company as the Crab Popcorn as well.

    This brand is the only one that flips it’s lid off for you…

      This ^^^^^^^^^

      But I’m with Aaron in assuming that “mild” Maryland salsa is very, very mild.

    Has to have produced for several years in a row before he gets to hawk the jar with the red label.

    Try and scoop it on your chip and it runs. Just like Manny.

    You an buy it now. You just can’t eat for a week.

      Eh, Don’t you just hate it when you leave a small word like “it” out of a sentence and it blows the whole joke?

    This stuff’s made in New York City!

      “NEW YORK CITY!?”
      “Get a rope”

    I am willing to bet that the hottest salsa will taste like candy for people who likes real salsa, instead of the sugary type made in the US & Canada.

    Adrián González has a sauce called “Tres Hermanos”… it would be cool to compare it, but if it is as hot as the sauces in the lobster burritos stand he used to go to in Tijuana, or the tostadas de ceviche stands in his natal TJ, grip yourself.

    As an example, there is a viral video of a brazilian tv conductor who asked mexican soccer fans outside of the stadium before the Brasil vs Mexico match, to taste the hottest sauce made in brasil, there was even one guy who said it tasted like chamoy (chamoy is a tamarind and chile sauce, very sweet, sometimes it is made with plums, it is made for kids who do not consume chile).

    Even Dustin Pedroia has his own salsa.
