Evil Ones Seeking Three-Way Deal For Manny Machado?

Just when you thought it was safe to think about the 2018 season, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic floats a story that The Bronx Embalmers are putting together a trade proposal to get Manny Machado. The three-team transaction would have The Pinstriped Posers sending three mid-level prospects to the Tampa Bay Rays—who would then send Jake Odorizzi to the Orioles. Baltimore, in turn, would send Machado to New York in exchange for Jacoby Ellsbury (with the Steinbrenner Brood eating a lot of his salary) and top 3B prospect Miguel Andujar. Crazy! But, can you imagine the Yankee line-up with Stanton, Judge and Machado back-to-back-to-back? It's too grotesque to contemplate.
