Albert Chen, a writer for Sports Illustrated, joined the Norris & Davis show to talk about the article he wrote a feature story praising Manny Machado. Machado currently leads the Major Leagues in base hits and is second in the American League in doubles.
Steve started off by asking why he decided to say Manny needs to be in the conversation with Trout and Harper. Albert said you can go back to last year and offensively it wasn’t spectacular, but historically they are compared to hall of fame players. Now that his bat is developing his bat and already has the glove he needs to be in conversation for players under 25 who you can build a franchise around.
