    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    If we really have an organizational philosophy of no opt outs we have handicapped ourselves permanently with any premium free agents we hope to finish close to signing in the future as well. It’s the price of business anymore, and it would have been a shocker if Manny signed any deal without an opt out. Of course we could have guaranteed another $35+ million as well that we now have going to guys like Yonder, Jay, Herrera, Colome and Nova on a team struggling to win 69 games. I honestly feel bad for those first two and the scorn they will face. You build an an entire offseason to acquire one target. It’s simply a failure not to convert. And my dumb ass will still watch this team but if there’s not serious improvement this year, and there’s actual signs that we know what we are doing as an organization, there needs to be wholesale change.

    At least Manny can get all that road strange now without Yonder busting him.

    I still hate moving Yoan to third.

    We're accusing a front office of playing four dimensional chess that hasn't proven it can play checkers yet.

    I'll defend this front office and give them a chance as much as anyone, but there's no denying that Machado was the biggest goal of the offseason based on the Alonso/Jay acquisitions. Those moves make no sense in any other context, especially Alonso. This front office loses the benefit of the doubt with me if they do not convert or suddenly improve by twenty wins this year. The thing about Yoan switching to third is that Madrigal has done nothing to have to "clear room" for him. Again, I like to hope on our guys as much as anyone but moving Yoan now to get him used to third when we call up Madrigal makes no sense at all for a guy that hasn't even proven a thing in A ball. I hope Nick works out but the notion that you get Yoan used to third now for a guy who hasn't even hit Birmingham is a bunch of malarkey to me. If that's really what we're doing then I worry way more about whatever the hell we are trying to do as an organization as before. I'm also still not willing to say we're out on Machado, but there's no reason for me - even if we don't get Manny - to worry about moving Yoan now. Which is why part of me thinks (hopes) its just a stunt.
