Manny Machado has to be a real MVP threat this year. Already the games’ premier defensive third baseman, Machado is swinging the stick to the tune of a eye-popping slash (.311/.375/.400). He’s got 26 two-baggers already (might he get 60 before it’s all said and done?). My guess is that his HR swing won’t slow down at all and he’ll crack the 40 Homer plateau. Trout may be the consensus pick as the AL’S premier player but Manny, in my book, is going hone with some hardware to put in his trophy case.
