MLB trade rumors: Orioles' Manny Machado for Yankees' Justus Sheffield? Miguel Andujar for a starter?

I am all for trading prospects to someone who could help the team win this year - but I beleive if you give up youth it should be to stregthen a weak point which is pitching.  I do not think that Machado in pinstripes makes sense right now.  Signing as a free agent is one thing but to get him for a few months when we are solid on the left side of the infield would be a puzzling move.

From that link:


USA Today's Bob Nightengale says it might make more sense for the Yankees to go after Machado following the 2018 season:


The Yankees privately say that their interest in Machado is overblown. They'd sure love to have him as a free agent this winter, and Machado has told friends the Yankees are easily his first choice, but to grab Machado now without bolstering their pitching staff makes no sense.


If this is factual, the Yankees should wait until the offseason. Giving up their top pitching prospect, who is just about ready to be in the majors, when the team's #1 need is pitching, is beyond absurd. They will get every chance to get MM after the season if he really wants NY as his top choice.

I'll take Didi and Andujar, over Machado and either of the first 2 any day. But I'm one of those weird Yankee fans who doesn't want the highest paid player at every position.

I'd do that, "if" we are allowed to talk an extension with Machado first... If they can reach a deal for next year, go for it, it's makes our offense better..  I don't know who Andujar will bring us for a starter ??

If, and that's a big if this were to happen, I'd much rather we package Didi than Andujar. Machado wants to play SS, not third base, and I truely think Andujar is a very, very special player. Nothing against Didi, as I love him as well. Personally, I'd rather this trade not happen at all, as Machado is sloppy defensivly at SS. We don't need that in problem in October. The only way I'd really do it is if he agreed to play first base, which I don't see happening.


Either way, the rumor mill seems to suggest that Baltimore is asking for the moon for a three month rental.

Any more than Gregorius and a window to negotiate an extension would be a gross overpay
Andujar > Gregorius
Torres > Andujar

Hmm this is apparently the same guy that broke the Stanton trade news.   If he's right I'd bet this will happen pretty soon:

Twitter is starting to blow up indicating Machado to the Yankees can happen at any day.  I am not a fan of this deal unless we are including pitching with this deal.
