The only reason I find this surprising is it feels like Machado has completely ruled out the Dodgers with this post. They kinda have A LOT of money. I don’t know if they’ll match what they Yankees offer him, but I certainly rule them out this early.
If nothing else, leave them on the table as a bargaining tool. Because the Red Sox, Cubs, Mets, Cardinals and Dodgers are pretty much the only teams who can spend the type of money Machado will command.
The Cubs don’t need him.
The Mets…I mean, c’mon.
I don’t think the Cardinals would be interested.
And call me crazy, but I think there are at least 7 reasons the Red Sox want no part of him.
That leaves the Dodgers and Yankees, who actually wants him. And he ruled out the Dodgers. So will the Yankees compete against themselves?
I DON’T THINK SO.
Stay hot, Manny.
