Manny Machado: Orioles Didn\'t Show Me Love
It\'s been seven months since the Baltimore Orioles traded Manny Machado to the Los Angeles Dodgers, but the shortstop hasn\'t forgotten.
Machado agreed to a $300 million deal with the San Diego Padres as a free agent last week.
\"The Dodgers last year, they showed me some love,\" he says. \"The Orioles drafted me. I did a lot for that community, I did a lot for the state, and they didn\'t show me a little bit of love. It is what it is. But going over to L.A., L.A. giving up a lot of prospects for me, that kind of shows you what I meant to them, which is amazing.\"
The Orioles drafted Machado with the third overall pick in 2010.
