You think they will pack the yards?
Dan Duquette- "This is the future. When you have the player with this kind of talent, he's a natural. The guy's got a lot of talent, and we feel like he can help, Manny should be a plus-defender, wherever we play him. He's a five-tool player, and he can help our team. I think he improves our team, and it's important here to be strong."
Buck Showalter- "If we can do something that makes us two inches better to have a chance to win the last 49 games, we're going to do it."
Machado was named the Eastern League Player of the Week after going 10-for-21, including hitting for the cycle.
