Today's expression is: PLAY HARDBALL
It means: To act strongly and aggressively about an issue with someone
Here are 2 examples of the expression, PLAY HARDBALL:
Example #1: Our manager was not good at playing hardball, so our company got a bad deal and lost a lot of money.
Example #2: Because he kept playing hardball and refused to compromise, Jack lost the deal.
Well, that’s all for today.
