That being said, offensively, he wasn't very good. Yes, he led the league in doubles, but he only hit .283/.314/.432. He didn't hit for any kind of special power, and didn't get on base very effectively. Delmon Young has a career batting line .282/.316/.423, and everybody is always saying how terrible he is, even at hitting. Don't get caught up in Machado's offensive skills; the majority of his value lied in his defense. I'm not saying he wasn't good offensively, or that he doesn't have a chance to be, but his offensive value was no where near Davis & Jones IMO.
I'm confused, in your 2nd line you said this:
"That being said, offensively, he wasn't very good."
Then at the end of the paragraph you said this:
"I'm not saying he wasn't good offensively,"
I can't figure out what your point was but you're being very wishy-washy. To bring up Manny in the same sentence with Delmon Young is absolutely ridiculous.
