Should the Yankees trade for Manny Machado?

The New York Yankees are reportedly interested in acquiring Manny Machado from the Baltimore Orioles. The Yankees are known for taking big swings on star players and Machado would be an upgrade for the Yankees at third base or shortstop. Still, they need starting pitching more and rookie Miguel Andujar is already developing into a good player. What do you think? ⚾

Machado is having the best year of his career at age 26, owning a .309/.379/.555 slash line with 21 home runs. Miguel Andujar has been good at third base, but Machado would be an instant upgrade. The starting pitching trade market is thin, so if getting Machado is an option, the Yankees should take it.

The Yankees are already set with stars in their prime and talented young players. What they don't have is starting pitching. They need to trade for that need so they can contend for championships. Adding a superstar bat might be nice, but it won't really help them accomplish their ultimate goal.
