Maybe Roayals/AL All Star Manager Ned Yost put Manny Machado in the three hole in the lineup as sort of an “I’m sorry my starting pitcher is a bag of shit,” or maybe he just recognizes that at this point in 2016, Manny Machado is the best position player in the game. Either way, it’s awesome to see Manny looked at around the country as one of the game’s elite.

 

Here’s the American League line up:

1. Jose Altuve

2. Mike Trout

3. Manny Machado

4. David Ortiz

5. Xander Boegarts

6. Eric Hosmer

7. Mookie Betts

8. Salvador Perez

9. Jackie Bradley, Jr.

 

The three hole is where you put your best hitter, and Ned Yost is saying that he knows Machado is the best. AL MVP, 2016. .318 Average, 19 homers, 53 RBI, and a 1-0 record in fights.

 

 

And unlike the National League roster, aka the 2016 Chicago Cubs, the AL lineup is filled with players who deserve to be there.
