Manny Machado is optimistic

20 Comments

Orioles top-prospect Manny Machado is either the most optimistic man on the planet or else he’s just an awesome team guy:

Machado is 19 now and hasn’t played above A-ball, so you figure he doesn’t see the bigs until 2013 at the earliest. Then figure he has until he’s in his late 30s or so until his career winds down. So, sure, I’ll grant him that the O’s could win the AL East sometime in the next 18-20 years or so.

But if he’s talking about the 2012 Orioles, yes, that’s a big jar of crazy sauce.
