As the hot stove turns: the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Padres general manager met with Manny Machado in Miami at some point last week.

Machado, it is reported, is the team’s “first choice” to fill their vacancy at third base, but there is no such suggestion that the Padres are Machado’s first choice, so let’s not get carried away here. Indeed, there is no suggestion that Machado is close to signing with anyone yet.

Still, it’s interesting that the Padres are still in the game. Such as it is.
