Manny Machado-Padres already feels like a solid marriage

The world at large, the greater baseball community and the members of the 2019 San Diego Padres all found out at roughly the same time, and through the same means -- a great rush of breaking news, transmitted via social media on Feb. 19 -- that the team had just landed star free agent infielder Manny Machado.
