    Between the financial commitment and his temperament, the team that signs him will regret it…in an A-Rod fashion. Pass.

      Yeah, why would anyone want this: http://m.mlb.com/cutfour/2017/06/17/237131142/manny-machado-makes-an-incredible-throw-from-deep-in-foul-territory

      A 26 year old 6-7 WAR a year player who can fill in at shortstop, creditably, in a pinch? Why would a team want that player in his prime? That player’s marginal value is something on the order of $50 million a year. He’s the only reason the O’s are even marginal contenders, which is being proven again by the fact that with him having a bad year, the O’s are a .500 team. (Well, that, and their starting pitching has been very bad.)

      I’d give him that for 6 years. I might even go to 8 years. Unless someone can prove that, like A-Rod, he uses PEDs.

      Oh, and sign that egotistical reprobate Harper to 6 or 8 years as well.

      Gleyber Torres tore the UCL in his non-throwing elbow. He’ll have TJ surgery. Should be back in time for next season. This delays his major league debut for a year…which might be better for the Yankees in the long run.

      Oh…that last reply was very off-topic. Sorry.
