Yankees Have Made 'Strong Offer' For Manny Machado

Schmuck wrote a Red Sox scout was in attendance for the Orioles' game Tuesday against the New York Yankees, presumably to get a firsthand look at Machado.

The Yankees have made a "strong offer" for Orioles shortstop Manny Machado, according to Fancred's Jon Heyman.

However, the report adds that there is "skepticism" that NY would agree to that deal if Machado, who's in the final year of his contract, would be merely a rental.

Giving up Sheffield for a potential rental would be a huge risk for NY, but Machado is good enough to be the final piece for a team's championship puzzle. He's enjoying a fantastic season to this point, with a.314 batting average, 23 home runs, 63 RBI and a.383 on-base percentage.

At this point, it's nearly easier to list the teams out of the Machado sweepstakes than those in the hunt for the four-time All-Star.

The Orioles would be wise to move him before the deadline and add prospects to their rebuild, and a bidding war between the Yankees and other contenders is the best-case scenario for Baltimore.
