During Monday’s All-Star Game festivities, Baltimore Orioles star Manny Machado and his young nephew stopped by to talk to MLB Network. While there, his nephew made it known where he wants his uncle to be traded.
The kid was asked, point blank, where he’d want to see Machado traded. After taking a moment to think about it, he said that he wants to see Uncle Manny on the New York Yankees.

He certainly could get his wish. The Yankees are among the teams in pursuit of Machado. One way or the other, we’re likely to find out soon. Recent reports have indicated that a trade is close to happening, even suggesting that Machado might be dealt before the regular season resumes on Friday.
