Manny Got A Job.
I love San Diego. If I could retire to anywhere with no other considerations, San Diego would be my home. The Padres are my “comfort team.” I don’t love them, I don’t hate them. I just enjoy the game and the weather and the easy walk back to the condo. Never get really excited, never get really crushed.
It’s San Diego.
I can’t imagine a better place for Manny’s laissez-faire approach to the game to fit in.
And maybe make me care about it…
I’m not sure why I care so much about Manny Machado.
Manny Machado, you may have heard, is expected to sign a $300-million, 10-year contract with the San Diego Padres.
(The San Diego Padres – the team you always forget when you’re trying to name all 30.)
This is the biggest free agent contract in sports history.
Until, I guess, Bryce Harper signs – with, maybe, the Phillies – later this week.
(The Philadelphia Phillies – the team with the name that’s not even trying. All teams should do that. The Washington Washies. The New York Yorkies – woof! The San Diego Sandies. The Baltimore Balties. Whatever.)
Having boatloads of quality free agents still unsigned when spring training is well underway is both weird and disconcerting.
