Default Machado on the trading block

Kills our chances of singing him in free agency anytime soon.

I posted this last week when the rumors first starting coming out about the O's taking calls on him.

I don't think it impacts it at all...he'd have to sign an extension first me thinks before anybody would trade for him and he's not going to do that. He'll hit the open market and the Sox have just as good a chance as anybody assuming they come up with the $$$$$.

There’s been reports that he wants to play shortstop where ever he signs.

They would be interested if they can negotiate an extension with him obviously. Hahn also might be just putting the Sox name out there to gauge Machado's interest for next year when he is a FA. I truly believe the Sox are willing to spend big for him.

Right. It seems we are part of 4 teams that have made an inquiry. Yankes, Red Sox, us, and one other (I don't remember who).

I am not sure how I feel about giving up our prospects.

They will ask for a Hansen in return. Probably won't breach our top 5. The yankees will counter with the shortstop they have in the minors, though.

I don't think we have the chips to do it. Not if we do this rebuild right.

I am not okay betting the farm on him.
