Much has been said so far about the signing of Manny Machado with the San Diego Padres. The hiring of the Dominican roots player was, at least, an injection of hope for a team that has serious plans to return to the October party.
But with the recent addition of Manny, the Padres have managed to integrate a group of players that could make a very good impression in 2019. As AJ Cassavell, MLB reporter, wrote a few days ago, "With Machado on board the San lineup Diego gets scared. "
As well. This Monday, the new Padres third baseman has achieved his first unstoppable spring training, a double between the right and center yards in the 4th episode, as part of his team's victory against the Cleveland Indians, 8 runs to zero .
But what's so funny about it? Now comes the best part: The Padres connected a total of 9 hits, of which 6 were extrabases, and of them, ALL were doublets ... connected by Latin players. Manny joined the biangulares of Dominicans Franchy Cordero and Franmil Reyes (2), Panamanian Javy Guerra and Luis Urias of Mexico. What do you think?
The fans of the Padres are living a dream preseason, saying the recent moves in their ranks and the current record of victories and defeats of 6-3. And they want to see their team succeed in 2019. Even if the ball does not reach a homer and all the hits are double.
