Colorado Rockies: How would Manny Machado change the NL West?

Colorado Rockies: How would Manny Machado change the NL West?

While the All-Star roster reveal has gotten most of the spotlight in the past day, rumblings out of Baltimore about a potential Manny Machado trade have been building since late last week.

There was a new one Monday at Camden Yards - Machado spoke with such inevitability of a move, to a line of questioning so resigned to such a fate, that he ended up essentially saying goodbye before it's time.

After all, what's left for him to do?

Besides serving as the starting shortstop for the American League in the All-Star Game, Machado likely will have to contend with continued and increased speculation surrounding his status as baseball's hottest trade chip. I'm trying to go out there and have fun.

The report comes weeks before the July 31 deadline. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers are considered the favorites to land Machado, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, but the Yankees have spoken with their division rivals about a possible trade.

Do the Yankees have the pieces to trade for Manny Machado?

It's the second consecutive year that the Orioles will have just one representative in the All-Star Game. His.313/.382/.560 average with 21 home runs, 19 doubles, and 61 RBIs completely tower over anyone else who has worn an Orioles uniform.

Machado becomes a free agent following this year's World Series. I know that sounds contradictory to everything I've said before now, but $16 million (which is how much it would cost to take on his current contract) is a lot to pay for someone for half a season, and then if he leaves in free agency, you don't get anything for him to "reimburse yourself". "You can tell that he was on a little mission to be consistent all year this year and I think this is consistent with that".

"Everyone in here is part of my family". The fans kind I guess appreciated the way I've been playing and I appreciate everything they've done. They'll always have my contact.

The Baltimore Orioles are the worst team in baseball. It's just made us better and brought us closer together.

"For me to that jersey on, it will be like the first time that I was selected for the All-Star Game".

The Dodgers still view him as the catcher of the future though, which explains why they do not want to include him in any trades. He encouraged them to "keep rooting for us, keep rooting for me, keep their heads up high".

But even he is already treating the Orioles' pending loss of their only All-Star in a fantastical way.
