Reporter writes Phillies are ‘expected to have interest’ in Manny Machado, which is not news

The news is that the Orioles “are receiving calls” from teams about Manny Machado, the all-world third baseman who hits the free-agent market next year.

Jon Heyman at FanRag Sports wrote that news. He then wrote that while he doesn’t know who is calling the Orioles, the Phillies are “expected to have interest” in Machado. That’s obvious, because – for one – every team is expected to have some sort of interest in Machado, and – for two – the Phillies have an under-performing third baseman currently on the roster, and could use an upgrade as they hope to enter a period of contention.

That’s the story. Machado. Orioles. Calls. Phillies? Who knows, but they’re a team!

    Nice headline. The slow-to-start hot stove has folks reaching for whatever topic they can find.

    Things should start moving once Stanton and Ohtani are settled.
