Manny Machado for Justin Upton, Chris Johnson, and Chris Owings.

I think you value Upton a LOT more than I do.

Who would you value more? Bundy or Machado?

Solid question on it's own. I suspect over the next 7-8 years Bundy is the better talent. Over the next 14-15 years I would value Machado. Long story short. We keep both of them.

I can't give you an either or answer because I value them equally and we need both of them to fill holes in our current and future roster. IF I had to choose one to lose it would be Bundy simply because we can't replace Machado from our farm system, and we have SP depth.

Never. Machado would be untouchable in my book and that would include any dicussion involving Stanton 8-)

There are certain people you simply do not trade. Machado looks to be one of them.
