Should the Milwaukee Brewers Keep Pursuing Manny Machado?

Baltimore Orioles shortstop Manny Machado

He entered Sunday's series finale in Minnesota ranked in the top eight in the AL in batting average (.310, eighth), home runs (21, eighth), RBIs (60, sixth) and hits (104, sixth). So it's unclear how interested they even are in a move of that magnitude, let alone whether Baltimore would be willing to send its franchise player and one of the best all-around players in baseball to NY.

They could conceivably make a move for a starting pitcher (even though they have been a lot better lately) or bullpen help. Acquiring Manny Machado could potentially solve one or both of those problems. But Machado, who turned 26 last week, isn't focusing on that.

The Brewers have sent Orlando Arcia to the Triple-A and acquired Brad Miller who has filled in at the shortstop spot.

Machado is the victor of a Platinum Glover Award as well as a three-time member of the AL All-Star team as a third baseman, but this season moved to shortstop and on Sunday was announced as the AL starter for the All-Star Game, as he beat out the likes of Carlos Correa, Francisco Lindor, Jean Segura and Andrelton Simmons.

Spokesman Eric Phillips rejected the claim that Mr de Blasio violated Mexican and U.S. immigration laws. He said both times they showed their passports and crossed with approval of agents at the entry point.

Along with the Milwaukee Brewers, the Dodgers are considered to be the team that is pursuing Machado the most, and their pursuit could be even more aggressive now that Yasiel Puig is likely headed for the disabled list. "That's all I've been thinking about".

The danger in dealing for Machado is the possibility that he could just be a rental. What would it take to land a guy like Machado? For example, with the lack of power bats that the Tampa Bay Rays roster has, I think it would be entirely possible to trade Shaw and Braun, or cash, for Chris Archer. Shaw and Braun would add a home run threat to the Rays offense, and Archer would provide the next level pitching for the Brewers. This is a massive downside. In fact, Machado has gone so far as to admit that he finds all of the attention on potential trades involving him to be "a little distracting".

"This organization has given me everything", he said.

They have a herd of impending free agents on their team that they will probably trade and the best player is shortstop Manny Machado and according to MLB.com, the Dodgers and Diamondbacks are the front runners for the shortstop who is leading the AL in voting for starting at shortstop in the All Star Game. He could be the missing piece to really set them apart from the NL Central favorites, the Chicago Cubs, and keep them from playing for the Wild Card once again.
