MLB Network's Greg Amsinger tells Jody Oehler on The Drive the Arizona Diamondbacks need to do whatever it takes to acquire Baltimore Orioles slugger, Manny Machado. Amsinger doesn't believe a deal would cost the Snakes any big time MLB talent, rather a package of top prospects.
The MLB Network studio host says Machado would provide the same lift J.D. Martinez gave Arizona in 2017. The 25-year-old is set to test free agency in the offseason and could prove to be a costly, half-season rental. Machado is a three time All-Star, two-time Gold Glove Award winner and has slugged 30 or more home runs the past three seasons. He is hitting .304 with 18 homers and 53 RBI this season for the O's.
Amsinger has some other moves the Dbacks should make before the Trade Deadline. Listen to the entire interview and hear The Drive's best weekly guest break it down with Jody
