The slow MLB off-season continues. The dominoes of Giancarlo Stanton and Shohei Ohtani finally came crashing down prior to the winter meetings, leading many to believe it would cause the market to finally escalate, but thus far, it hasn’t (unless you’re a reliever, then it has).

There has still been only one major league deal given out to a position player free agent thus far this late into the off-season.

Now it seems that Manny Machado may be the player that’s holding up the market as he is easily the best player being made available, but even with just one year left on his contract, the Orioles asking price is said to be extremely high and rightfully so.
