Re: Todd Jones traded
just for comparison, what's been said about Machado reminds me a lot of Adam Everett when I first saw him with the Zephyrs in 2000. He looked scrawny, clueless at the plate, couldn't get the ball out of the infield and struck out a lot. He worked hard at it, and really improved.
I can't find his minor league stats to verify, but that is what I remember.
