Machado is signed for a lot of years. The Padres went young last year. I really don't get this post
So to be fair, I did a bit more reading up on how San Diego and Machado himself viewed his season. And actually Padres were a teeny touch better this year than last. Still, like Baltimore's slight improvement..thats irrelevant.
Manny hated his season. One beat writer did his best to spin it all positively, while admitting it wasn't Manny's best season. I don't blame him for that...Padres are spending $300 mil. Another assessment was he wasn't great but its only one year so they expect better. Also the team's farm is strong and they expect to contend in 2020. Guess we'll be watching!
