Manny Machado, 2013 Panini Triple Play #8

It's pretty damned fun watching Manny Machado play every day. He won't be able to legally buy his own beer for another month, and yet he's batting .317, leading the league with 27 doubles, and playing highlight-reel defense at third base. Manny is even running second in American League All-Star voting at his position, although it looks like Miguel Cabrera will run away with the contest. No worries; soon enough Machado will be back in his natural position of shortstop, where the competition will be less stiff. There could be lots of Midsummer Classics in his future.

These Triple Play caricatures are marvelous.

I'm not the big fan of these as most everyone else seems to be but I can say that seeing MM for three straight games last week in Houston was a treat. Is there ANYTHING this kid doesn't do well?
This was my first time seeing the new and improved Orioles in person and he and AJ displayed ridiculous talent.

Max - I quite like them too.

Bob - I can't get past how young he is. There's no reason he shouldn't improve over the next few seasons.
