Machado to Padres

Recommended Posts

No idea where that franchise came up with that kind of coin, but I'm happy for them.  Biggest free agent they've landed in a very long time.

They've actually spent 475 million the last two years in FA, the most in Baseball. They also have the top rated minor league system in the sport. I hear what you're saying about them being a small market team, but they got Hosmer last year, and Machado is only 26. Their odds to make the World series went from 80 to 50-1, and their projected wins are up to about 80 now. Once those prospects begin to arrive, who knows? They could become Astros 2.0.

But.....   Collusion.    MLB stars aren't getting any money.

100% he went for the money, and he is 100% allowed to do so.   I wonder how much he will like it there.  Maybe they turn it around, but bigger ballpark, not a winning history.

The cheapo franchises get welfare from the Yankees and Red Sox

I love people criticizing Machado for taking the best deal.  Who are they to say he should accept less money to play for a “contender” and how are bad teams supposed to get better if top FA’s shouldn’t sign with them?

I am not saying he should have taken less.   At all.   He earned free agency, he should do exactly what he wants.  Now, in 2 years, if the Padres don't improve, and he is complaining about the stadium and crap like that, I will give him crap for that. 

It's like this.  I love where I work, and I love where I live.   If someone offered my massively life changing money to do my job in San Diego,with a 10 year guarentee of employment, I'm there.

Have you ever been to San Diego?  It's probably the nicest place to live in the entire US and that is a really nice stadium

Lived there for 6 years.

Great place to live.    The team hasn't been good in a long time, they may be fixing that.   It is not a hitters ball park, which may bother him.
