Manny Machado - Who knew?

Who is Manny Machado?

He's a 20 year old man brought up a month ago and is a big reason the Orioles are in first.  Last night in the top of the 9th he made a great play at 3rd and picked off Rich Thompson and then scored the winning run in the bottom of the inning.

Today in an afternoon game he had the walk off hit in the 14th to beat the Rays.

Every day it seems to be another guy stepping up to help Baltimore.  I love it.  That's baseball.  That's chemistry.

Buck Showalter is a leader.  A guy you want to play for.
No one thought they'd make the playoffs.  But here they, with a 1/2 game lead waiting to see if Boston can beat the Yankees tonight.
Still got a lot of baseball left but my heart is pulling for the O's to go all the way.  Would love to see a replay of the Pirates - Orioles in the World Series but I fear the Pirates are done.
