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.

Machado: “Eventually things will turn around” - School of Roch

I’m not ready to write off the Orioles.

Machado agreed that the Orioles (63-50) are facing their biggest challenge and a trip to San Francisco awaits them after Thursday’s game.
“Definitely, hands down, it probably is,” Machado said. “This is going to separate us, hopefully. We’re going to get stronger from this and we’re going to learn from it, too.
“I think everyone is going to get into their groove. We’re squaring balls up, which is the best part about it. It’s just not landing, so we just have to take that as a positive and take it out tomorrow. “

Heyman: Harper and Machado long shots to stay?

But the issue with Harper is not just his supreme talent – he’s generally seen as one of the two best players in the game, along with Mike Trout – but also his stunning youth. That the sides haven’t seriously talked may be a reflection on the fact there’s thought to be no common ground. Or maybe it’s just an assumption that there’s none. Maybe the Nats have heard the whispers that the asking price may be $40 to $50 million a year, and perhaps for 15 years (that could make it as much as an astounding $750 million).

Boras in a phone interview spoke of the specialness of Harper but said he “didn’t want to get into the pricing.” Which may be how things are going with the Nats.

“We have not to this point had any substantive negotiations about a long-term deal,” Rizzo, who’s done an excellent job in Washington and recently had his own two-year extension picked up by his bosses, said in a phone interview.
