O's 'Dissatisfied' With Trade Offers For Manny Machado

Multiple reports indicate that the Orioles are not happy with the trade offers they've gotten for Manny Machado—and may soon pull him off the market. Reportedly, the Red Sox were among eight teams who expressed interest in the star third-baseman—the others being The Evil Ones, Phillies, Giants, White Sox, Cardinals, Cubs and Diamondbacks. Boston may have offered Xander Bogaerts, Eduardo Rodriguez (who the Red Sox originally got from Baltimore) and prospect Michael Chavis. Why Dan Duquette would not be thrilled with that offer is beyond us. In any event, the good news is that it looks as if Machado won't be headed to the Bronx either—at least not until next off-season.
