Manny Machado Has Signed with The Padres in Largest Free-Agent Contract in American Sports History

Manny Machado, 4-time all-star infielder has signed a 10-year, $300 million-dollar contract with the San Diego Padres. Despite playing somewhat inconsistently, the 26-year old was deemed worthy of the largest free-agent contract in the history of American sports. The Padres hope to build a strong team around him. He can opt out after 5 years of playing. -East Bay Times
