Says the guy who keeps calling Manny Machado a Latin American baseball player. Difference is, I was joking. 

I will say this, I will never assume someone isn't juicing in baseball regardless of testing. Don't be naive fella's. It's not out of the game - it certainly wasn't when I was in college in 2005-2009.

Okay, so Dominican-American ISN'T equal to Latin-American, got it...

A Latin American baseball player implies he's from LATIN AMERICA. Holy cow... are you just trolling me right now?

Manny Machado is as AMERICAN as Eric Hosmer. You don't refer to Eric Hosmer as European American, do you? Enough with the ignorant racial nonsense. Manny Machado is American.

By descent, he is...if the answer was as cut and dried as you think, WHY WOULD HE PLAY ON THE DOMINICAN WBC TEAM AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY?

Because ethnic identity is a much more complicated issue than you're making it out to be.

Yeah, and Ike Davis and Ian Kinsler are Israeli-Americans based on that absurd WBC logic... yet they have never even been there. 

And what's his name who played for team Italy. Was it cervelli? I guess he's Italian and not American too because he didnt play for USA.

Fine, if we had a Buster.

But I'm not conceding the point.  That said, there's no point to argue it out any further without getting into apolitical debate about cultural identity/identity politics.

And Machado has been back to visit family/relatives in the Dominican Republic on NUMEROUS occasions.

Manny machado is a US citizen. He has a US passport. He has a US education. He entered the MLb via the AMERICAN AMATEUR draft. He did not sign for international pool money. He was not an international prospect. He is not FROM Latin America. Therefore he is not a Latin American prospect and never was. Glad I could clear that up. 

That'll be it from me.

Frank Catalanotto from Long Island, New York is who I thought you were referring to:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Catalanotto

“Despite not having Italian citizenship, Catalanotto's Italian heritage made him eligible to play for the Italian national team at the 2006 and 2009 World Baseball Classic.”

By the way, Manny Machado is Dominican-American, not Latin American.

I never wanted Machado on the Sox, especially on these terms. I think the Padres will soon regret this deal. The only thing that upset me about yesterday’s events, is that he didn’t sign with the Phillies and it appears the Sox are out on Harper, the player I truly wanted.

An extremely unpopular opinion on this forum this offseason but I’ll be curious to see how this plays out over the next couple years. I think Manny’s numbers will be way down this season from last season now that he got his $$$. I still believe the Sox dodged a bullet by missing on him.

Small sample or not, it’s still fun to point out that Moncada already has a 0.5 fWAR lead on Machado less than a week into the season.

Machado with his 1st dirty play of the Padres era. He hit a pop up to the catcher, and even though he was called out because he stepped on the back of the catcher's foot, the dirty part was that he gently tossed the bat right next to the catcher's feet as he was tracking the pop up. The catcher ended up dropping the ball in foul territory, but Manny was ruled out for interfering. And then of course he had to be restrained when he was ruled out and his manager was ejected for arguing it.

Season nearly 40% complete and he’s basically been Yolmer Sanchez with a bit more power. The back half of this contract is going to look very ugly.
