Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, after the All-Star Game, on the prospect of adding Manny Machado: "If it does happen, it would be awesome. That would lift our lineup. Hopefully we can get a few pieces in the bullpen, and this is go time. He's a great guy and we would love to have him here."

If Manny Machado is traded prior to Friday, he'll become just the third person ever to play an All-Star Game with one team, then start the second half with another team, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Drew Pomeranz did it in 2016. Seventy years earlier, in 1946, Frankie Hayes did it.

A crowd of reporters waited by Mike Trout's locker before tonight's All-Star Game. But they weren't there for him — they were there for the guy whose locker is right next to him: Manny Machado. Later, after Machado had taken a few questions — saying he had heard "nothing" from either the Orioles or his agent — Trout was asked how his All-Star teammate is handling all the trade rumors. "He's handling it. He's gotta be going through some emotions. It's probably tough for him. He doesn't know where he's going to be playing," Trout said. "He knows he's going to be traded but doesn't know where. But I'm sure he wants this thing to be over." As a baseball fan, how much is Trout following the story? "Obviously, when you see one of the big guys in the market get traded, you want to see where he's going. I just wish it was [to] the Angels."


Rob Manfred joins the show.

Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon question if it's okay that Bryce Harper and his Dad broke the rules, if Manny Machado would put the Dodgers over the top, if the 76ers reaching out to Morey is a surprise and more. Plus, Rob Manfred joins the show.

But Machado, the biggest name on the block ahead of this year's trade deadline, called it "a mistake" and said he's "liked" similar photos of himself in various other uniforms, too, as he's scrolled through his feed.
