We're trying to win a title this year.
Machado is a Yankee fan, ARod is his favorite player and supposedly he'd go back to 3rd for only the Yankees. Doesn't seem like someone who would be a "rental" then leave his dream team as if we're not already intending to spend big this offseason.
Why doubt Cashman now of all times? If anything, I'm sure there's an extension understanding after this season.
You're probably right. If we got Machado, I would guess he would resign with us. I personally just don't like giving up all of the assets they are talking about giving up for a guy that we can just sign in a few months. Especially since we have Andujar at 3B and really need a SP more than another bat, as great as Machado is.
