    I thought maybe you were suddenly being a pussy waiting for us to ask for your input.

    I find the term 'starting pitcher' to be triggering because it reminds me of my mom's favorite antique pitcher that she would always fill up with lemonade. Someone broke it and my mom was heartbroken. MLB needs to change that position to 'initial throwy guy' and ASAP.

    I don't care anymore. If they sign, fine. If they don't, then it's their own damned fault they're unemployed. I'm just tired of it all. Add Keuchel and Kimbrel to that list as well.

    I will say, Machado was given an offer by the Yankees. I think he should take it.

    Manny Machado, Padres Reportedly Agree to Historic 10-Year, $300M Contract

    By Alec Nathan - Bleacher Report




    The Manny Machado sweepstakes are finally over.

    According to ESPN.com's Jeff Passan, Machado and the San Diego Padres agreed to terms on a contract Tuesday following his half-season stint with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reported the 10-year deal is worth $300 million, making it "the biggest free-agent contract in the history of American sports."

    Machado's deal reportedly features an opt-out provision after the fifth year, per Yahoo Sports' Tim Brown.

    Despite the reporting of a deal, Padres executive chairman Ron Fowler told Dennis Lin of The Athletic that there was no agreement and that they are "continuing discussions." Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic added Fowler's comments are "likely" semantics given Machado hasn't passed a physical and contract language has not been finalized.

    Machado arrived in L.A. prior to the trade deadline after spending the first six-and-a-half seasons of his career with the Baltimore Orioles. During his stay in Southern California, Machado took over for the injured Corey Seager at shortstop and hit .273/.338/.487 with 13 home runs and 42 RBI.

    By season's end, the 26-year-old piled up 37 homers and 107 RBI while hitting a career-high .297.

    Despite the big numbers, Machado was never considered likely to make Los Angeles his long-term home. The Dodgers already had Seager in the fold on an entry-level contract, and their payroll was the third-highest among all clubs last season at $196.6 million.

    Add a nine-figure salary to the ledger, and that number would have skyrocketed.

    As a result, the four-time All-Star pursued new opportunities and landed with the Padres on a deal that will make him a crucial component of their pennant chase in the coming years.

    And based on Machado's track record, he should have a positive effect upon arrival.

    Machado ranks 13th among all players with 168 home runs since 2013 and his 203 doubles are good for ninth over that stretch.

    Additionally, the two-time Gold Glove winner has proved to be one of Major League Baseball's rangiest hot corner patrolmen. Although he primarily played shortstop with the Dodgers, Machado has always been best suited as a third baseman because of his quick reflexes and huge arm.

    To that point, Machado ranks second among all third basemen with 77 defensive runs saved and tops in ultimate zone rating with a mark of 45.7 since 2013.

    The Padres still have plenty of work to do, of course, but bagging Machado over other big-market competitors like the New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies is a major coup for the up-and-coming NL West club.

    What's more: The Padres may soon have one of the most talented infields in all of baseball with Fernando Tatis Jr., currently listed as MLB.com's No. 2 ranked prospect, due for his major league debut in the near-future.

    Machado will have to be patient as the Padres work their way into the pennant race over the next few years, but the payoff could be substantial if San Diego's rebuild goes according to plan.

    Personally, I don't believe Machado's worth anywhere near $300 million, so the Padres are idiots for giving him that much. They're projecting Harper gets more than Stanton's $325 million.

    Most Philly people want Philly to wait and go after Trout next year.
