    Orioles still going in the complete wrong direction and most certainly won't be keeping him... So where does he go?

    Choose your pick and explain why

    I choose the Yankees just because I always think they will be in on big name players... But Cashman and company have been smarter now so they might not even make an offer....

    next choice would be the Cubs....

    Imagine.... Rizzo, Bryant, Machado in a line-up together!

    I chose the Yankees because it seems like every year his name has been linked to the Bronx? That would be a nastier lineup. Just imagine if Stanton starts hitting the ball like he is capable of doing.

    it would be tremendously scary! However.... Would the Yankees be willing to move around their young guys at 3rd/ss or do they stick with what they have since they have been producing.

    I think the Yanks are doing things finally the right way. They have a very deep farm system and developing them through the system is imo the best way. That being said, if it were me, I would be looking for SP and possible a middle reliever to build for the playoffs. I think Houston is going to be a bitch to beat in a series with that starting pitching staff. Yankees don't need Machado. They need their starters to get healthy and add a SP for the playoff run imo.

    agree with this... Their offense is certainly not the problem... But they could always use more as could any team..

    The more I think about it... The Cubs keep coming into my head. Just not sure they have the trade chips to do it

    Phillies have a lot of interest in him. They have the pieces to make the deal. I'm not sure if he would put them over the hump. Phillies need middle relief pitching badly. Their bullpen has given up leads lately and continued to lose games late. Example, last night Nola pitched a hell of a game and the relievers did almost everything to lose that game last night. Luckily they pulled it off.

    Cleveland to play third. He can hang with his Cousin Alonso.

    Next year to Arizona.

    Yeah I know they do and I wasn't thinking they'd have him at 3rd but they could move russell

    I can't see Baltimore trading him within the division, so no to the Red Sox and Yankees. The Cubs have been talking a lot about getting him, but why when you have Russell and Bryant and Rizzo already? The dodgers just got Turner back and that kid that was playing 3rd in his absence is good enough that they don't need him either.

    So I went with the Nationals, and a bonus for Machado of staying in the same general area.

    Not sure the nats want to replace rendon and no way they replace turner
    braves could trade for him as a rental if they believe they can make the playoffs:suds:

    I agree with the Nats replacing their guys, but it looks like most teams are in the same boat and this move gives Machado a chance to stay in the area. Is Macahdo a 5/10 guy?

    Yeah they might be up there as well...

    As far as the 5/10 I'm not sure nor have I been able to find out... Granted I suck at finding stats. He's been with the Orioles for 7 years I believe

    I don't think he is. I looked tried to look it up and it just gave me a bunch of articles about the O's pulling him off the trade block.
