machado trade idea.

First of all people are saying that machado would only net a few ptching prospects because of the remaining 1 year on his contract. I do not believe that is true, look at past trades with stars having one year left, machado is a superstar that would bring in a nice return.

Second, people don't believe the orioles will trade machado. I disagree why loose machado to free agency and get nothing in return. Trade him now, while he is in high demand, don't wait until trade deadline and risk him getting hurt.

Third, The yankees have the best prospects to offer the orioles, the orioles owner should look past the hatred towards the yankees and make the team better.

So that being said yankees trade with orioles.

Yankees get: 3B Machado
Orioles get: SP Chance Adams, SP Albert Abreu, SP Justus Sheffield, OF Clint Frazier, 3B Miguel Andujar, SS/2B Thairo Estrado

Now this is an overpay.

Although it's probably the only scenario in which Angelos will accept a deal from the Yankees.

If the Yankees got machado, andujar is blocked. Clint Frazier is expendable now, with hicks Stanton and judge, even if Gardner or ellsbury leaves through trades, the Yankees still have Estevan Florial. The Yankees give up three good pitching prospects, but their rotation is set for a little bit. They can go into next offseason re loadimg their farm system and pitching prospects.

"If the Yankees got Machado, Andujar is blocked. "

Dear God, Yankees fans have lost their minds. Machado is ten times the player Andujar is.

I think you overreacted to the comment about Andujar, he never said he was good as Machado or near his level, just he would be blocked if they acquired Machado.

I think that Machado has gone on record on saying he wants to move back to shortstop so the third base blockage might not be as big of an issue. However, what would you do with Gregorius because he's under team control through 2020? Unless the Yankees either trade Gregorius, who has taken off since joining the Yankees, or convince Machado to play 3rd Base long term, assuming he signs an extension, I don't see a scenario where the Yankees can acquire Machado
