Why Manny Machado signing makes sense for Marlins

Should the Marlins pursue Manny Machado? It actually makes more sense than one would think. To be clear, all 30 teams should at least entertain the idea of adding Manny Machado. Very rarely does a player of Machado’s age and ability hit the free agent market. At the age of 26, we’re talking about an MVP-caliber player who is just entering the prime of his career. Earlier this week, Buster Olney of ESPN reported that Machado had been offered 7 years and $175 million by the Chicago White Sox. This information was corroborated by Bob Nightengale of USA Today. The White Sox offer to...

Poll: What is the best Tigers team of all-time?

We probably know which team is number one, but who comes after that? With the MLB offseason rumor mill all but ground to a halt as we wait for Manny Machado and Bryce Harper to determine their respective futures, we have some time to kill before spring training. Our prospect coverage is in full gear — check out this year’s list! — but there is plenty else we can do. Those who have been around here for a while may remember the 2013-14 offseason when we attempted to rank the best Detroit Tigers players of all-time.

The kerfuffle over rumored offers to Manny Machado is a bad sign for MLB labor relations

The kerfuffle over rumored offers to Manny Machado is a bad sign for MLB labor relations

Every time we hear things like this, it makes owner/player relations worse. Around midday Wednesday, a tweet from a respected national reporter about free agent Manny Machado was sent out with a specific dollar figure noted: The White Sox offer to Machado is for $175 million, over seven years. In some ways, their approach is like Boston's w/ J.D. Martinez last winter -- the Red Sox offered $100 million and waited for two months. If CWS offer emerges as best, a big ? is: Would Machado/NYY re-engage?— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) January 16, 2019 Buster Olney’s tweet was later...

MLB Roundup 1/17: Manny Machado’s agent speaks out

Remember when the offseason would be about teams on the field? Manny Machado’s agent has some words for reporters Yesterday was a tumultuous day in the Manny Machado free agency, and it didn’t get us any closer to knowing where the star infielder is going to end up. In other words, it was a pretty typical offseason day based on the last two years. Wednesday started with rumors coming out that the top offer to Machado came from the White Sox and it was a seven-year deal worth $175 million. That sure seemed incredibly low and like a deal that anyone — particularly the Yankees and/or...
