I just poured a gallon of expired apple cider over my head.
When Machado was with Baltimore he caused a pin worm infestation. That is minus 2 WAR right there.
It's a bargain if you pay the value of his avg WAR over his career
300 million is to much money for a stinky farts type of guy like Machado. Harpers farts don’t stink.
What the naysayers overlook is that his D should help settle down a bunch of young pitchers.
I don’t get how 70% of you guys said that 300M is an overpay for a top 10 position player that’s only 26...
Isn't it true the Padres are changing uniforms next season?
Essentially meaning they may get 1.5x - 2x the jersey sales with Machado's name on the back over the next 2 years.
Reds 3B Suarez better fielder and better stats is signed for 7 years for 66M
Overpaid blowhard hotdog!! Wouldn’t rub two wooden nickels together for him. Not to mention/add this is the last place Padres he went to, so there’s that too. ????????
This is a huge bargain for the padres. 30k a year is less than I make as a pickle packer,
Manny Machado reminds me of a recurring hemorrhoidal flare up.
Severe overpay! Machado is known to irritate his teammates by leveling off sulphuric smelling gassy milky farts. You can do that much cheaper by signing Gordon Beckham. He also farts up the dugout. Between Hosmer and Machado the Padres clubhouse will smell like 7-11 restroom.
Look the Cubs learned their lesson with Heyward, plus the ticket prices, beer, hot dogs are going up so much that personally I can't afford to go to a Cubs game anymore. This will soon be a problem for MLB IMO.
Machado has been worth over 30 WAR already and hasn't even hit his prime. He will exceed the salary in early years and likely underperform relative to his salary in later years. He could reasonably produce 40-50 WAR over the length of the contract, well over $300 million worth in FA$.
Machado has been worth
Dylan has spoken. Might as well close the poll.
Glad my Indians now won’t have to face him over and over. Thank you, San Diego.
Absolutely no player is worth this kind of money, teams are better off going with young guys in their system than breaking the bank for one player. Machado and Bryce can’t win a World Series by themselves, these players are greedy and the owners are brain dead.
Padres just bought a major headache. Eventually they'll have to send a boat load of cash to to some team to exile him from their clubhouse. Machado's ego isn't big enough for San Diego
Option after the 5th year . he has a reason not to play good or eve Run to First and collect 30 Billion for 10 Years Straight . and Knowing he hates to run Period and the fences in San Diego are farther than in LA or Washington . he might need to unless they move them in and he can Walk around the diamond and get fat for being that way.Bad Deal period!
He will exceed the value of the contract by 15% or more
Based on the current market, it sure seems like Machado's contract was an overpay, though reports of the White Sox's final offer being 8yrs, $250M guaranteed and up to $100M more in options and achievement bonuses means Machado was willing to leave potential money on the table.
Overpaid. The Padres never would have been able to land him without overpaying him.
Anyone who thinks this is an overpay is an idiot, and doesn't know what they are talking about.
