MLB Network host Greg Amsinger believes the National League West will be decided by which ball club acquires Orioles slugger Manny Machado. Amsinger thinks the Arizona Diamondbacks need to be proactive and make the deal for Machado before the Los Angeles Dodgers outbid them with their unlimited funds and plethora of prospects.
There are other suitors for Machado's services. The shortstop is hitting .303 with 19 home runs and 55 RBI this season for the O's. The three-time All-Star is nearly a lock to hit the free agent market this offseason.
Greg also debates with Jody whether or not Ichiro would be a good candidate for the Home Run Derby
