Manny Machado Might be the Best Young Third Baseman in History

You already know Manny Machado, all-star third baseman for the Baltimore Orioles, is very good. But here’s the thing: He’s better than very good. Machado might be the best-ever third baseman at this stage in a career.

George Brett has never stopped trying to please his old man, in spite of it all | The Kansas City Star

We only have one.

George Brett is thinking about his father again, the man who punched him and kicked him and at least once threatened to kill him. George loved the old man. Sometimes people have a hard time understanding that.

George has read stories that say he hated his father, and, sure, there were moments back when he was a kid in Southern California when that was true. But isn’t that how most of us are with our parents?

No, George never hated the man. Not in a real, lasting way, at least. He was scared of him. Scared to death. But that’s different than hate. Jack Brett demanded the best from his kids. There’s something to be said for that.

Father’s Day is this weekend. This summer is 25 years since George’s dad died of cancer. But George would be thinking of him anyway.
