Albatross contracts should be avoided, as well as making a guy with so many character issues the highest paid player on your team.


Is he a rapist? Murderer? Pedophile?   Someone I know who is an Oriole fan says he is a good guy as well as player.  I know he has issues with the Sux, which is a good reason to sign him! I believe the "character issues" are overblown.




Being Yankee fans and playing the O's so many times we have all followed a good part of Machado's career.  His remark was probably just using poor words to point out the fact that you don't go 110% on every ball hit, you just don't.  I have never known him to be anything other than a very good player, and if he goes in spikes high against the Red Sox then it makes me like him even more!  LOL!



I asked my brother in law about Machado, and he speaks highly of him. He is an Oriole fan who live near Baltimore, and has access to more of the local press than I do. He says we should get him.  And he is from the Syracuse area, and grew up a Yankee fan...

Well since your brother in law says so I think the Yankees would be stupid not to listen

   DJ LaMahieu is represented by the same agent, Joe Wolfe, that got Giancarlo Stanton $325 M from the Marlins / Yankees. Given the issues that guys like Harper and Machado have getting long term deals, and the problems that quality second tier guys like Gonzalez and Moustakas encountered getting any deal, Joe Wolfe is a genius.

He got him a great deal no doubt but timing is everything in regards to contracts.
