Yes, Manny Machado is now a Padre. Yes, one or two or three National League West teams are still in on Bryce Harper. Despite it all, Anthony and Tyler are oddly upbeat in the latest episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast. On this week's edition of the show, we dive into Machado's deal and what it could mean for Nolan Arenado's extension situation with the Rockies. Plus the Padres are obviously a better team today than they were last week, but does Machado's signing put San Diego near contention in 2019? What are the odds Harper ends up in the division and, depending on which team it's with, does that shift the balance of power? Ian Desmond is headed to center field as Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl will flank him in right and left respectively. Just how much does that help or diminish the Rockies' defensive prowess in the outfield? And remember when we were all flipped out for 24 hours after a tweet that suggested Mark Reynolds was going to get a look at second base? Phew! That was a close one. It's the 156th episode of the Purple Dinosaur Podcast! Slather it on your skin if you're headed down to the Cactus League to protect against that Arizona Sun!
