Re-posted from our ongoing Winter Meetings updates:
Okay. According to Roch Kubatko of MASN, the Orioles are “doing their homework” on the Phillies farm system, in case talks about Manny Machado go from whisper to scream.
The Orioles seem to want Sixto Sanchez, which, duh, of course. They also like Scott Kingery, which, guess what, DUH, OF COURSE.
And Kubatko also wrote that Freddy Galvis is a name being floated. Well then … I’m listening …
Anyway, he also notes the Phils would have 72 hours to sign Machado to an extension, or else he becomes a one-year rental and the return is smaller.
Yes, Sixto and Scott is a LOT (hey that rhymes), but guys, this is the No. 3 best player in baseball.
Also, here’s the deal: On day one of the Winter Meetings, we already have a link from the Phillies to Manny Machado.
GET YOUR POPCORN.
