    Where’s Manny Machado Going?

    I’m going with the White Sox. Why? They just traded for his brother in-law, Yonder Alonso from Cleveland.

    So the Orioles are like the Phoenix Suns of MLB?

    I am embarrassed to admit I have no idea who Manny Machado is. Sadly baseball has really fallen off my radar in the last 20 years. I still like the older cards but man, I have no idea who is who anymore.

    The Suns=Orioles comparison isn't too far off right now. The Suns were one Robert Horry flagrant foul away from the NBA finals..The Orioles were one Jeffrey Maier fan interference no call away from the World Series - ever wonder if team trajectories might have been different if not for those types of travesties.

    I guess I am lucky - I spend so much time playing and watching baseball with my son, I am still in touch with the current generation of players, probably to the detriment of my vintage stuff.

    I don't think I can name three other Padre players (excluding Tatis, if you consider him a Padre, as I think they may season him in the minors until midApril). Do they still have Wil Meyers?
    Not sure what Machado's thinking was on this. Perhaps the Pardes have an awesome farm system. Perhaps he is the starting point for other FA's to head there.
    It will be interesting to see.

    On small trades I use PWE but'll use a bubble mailer if you ask.
    Slow trader. Please be patient: I love trading, but I don't have enuf time for it, so it takes me a while.

    Check my site: http://www.freewebs.com/frankpell/ for wants and trade items.
    "CMB"'s will be ignored. Sorry.

    They have a highly-touted stable of prospects and young talent at the Majors from drafting and trading stars like Kimbrel, Justin Upton and others over the years. I like Marcel Margot (former Red Sox prospect) in centerfield and Jose Pirela at second. But yeah, outside of Eric Hosmer and Will Myers and now Manny Machado, the team is anonymous.

    If the young talent comes around that they hope in a year or two this signing will look genius.

    Was really hoping he'd end up on the Phillies. Now they'll probably overpay for Harper, who I think is overvalued and probably won't last 10 years...

    Did not see the Padres coming - guess you don't need to have all the big boys bidding to get the biggest contract in history....
