Padres Make the Yu Darvish Extension Official

San Diego Padres Announce Yu Darvish Contract Extension

Yu Darvish was extended by the San Diego Padres yesterday and had his press conference today with President of Baseball Operations A.J. Preller at Petco Park. Coming away from the presser it was clear that this extension got done because Darvish wanted to be here and the Padres wanted him here. The organization also continues to value certain things

I say that because this seems to be the same thought process in a potential extension with Manny Machado. Preller told the media Machado has “expressed an interest in being here” and San Diego in turn has “expressed an interest in him being here”. That should lead to an extension, right? We can only hope.

On the latest episode of Talking Friars, I give my thoughts on all that went on today. Do you think a Machado extension will occur? Give your thoughts in the comments!
