YOU ARE THE GM – Manny Machado Edition

It is all over the place – the Yankees have expressed an interest in acquiring Manny Machado from the Orioles. This is being reported by CBS, the NY POST, the NY DAILY NEWS, and many others.

If you are the GM, and If Manny Machado is available, do you go after him? What is the best deal you offer to the Orioles? It is rumored that Manny wants to play shortstop. Do you move Didi Gregorius off shortstop? Do you insist on a long-term deal being in place before you make the deal?

You are the GM – let us know your thoughts on all things Machado related. (In the comments, as always, please keep it clean and appropriate. Thanks.)

(Also, this series is no longer a contest. The following was posted on 12/1/17:

12/1/17 UPDATE – Unfortunately, when we switched our domain web address, all the old comments were lost. But, I would still like to give away the book “The Quality of Courage” by Mickey Mantle. Instead of a contest, we will do this through a random drawing. Using the Contact form above, please reach out to us stating that you’d like to be entered into the Quality of Courage Drawing. We will draw from all of the entries received by December 15. One entry per reader, please. (The deadline to enter will be 5:00 p.m. on December 15.)

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
