ATLANTA (AP) — Flush with cash Greg Maddux Jersey , the New York Yankees may take a run at Manny Machado.But first, the slugging infielder would have some explaining to do.Arriving in Atlanta for two days of owners meetings at a hotel next to the Braves’ SunTrust Park, Hal Steinbrenner discussed the state of a team that has one of baseball’s most dynamic young rosters but came up short in the playoffs the last two seasons.The Yankees owner has plenty of money to spend after coming in under the luxury tax threshold last season for the first time since the penalty took effect in 2003. While the top priority is starting pitching, New York is also mentioned as a contender for one of the winter’s biggest free-agent prizes.Machado is a dynamic player but comes with plenty of baggage, including the reputation as a dirty player and his admission that he’s “not the type of player that’s going to be Johnny Hustle ” after he jogged out a groundball during the NL Championship Series.“Certainly, those comments are troubling,” Steinbrenner said during a meeting with a small group of reporters in the hotel lobby. He quickly added that it would be the job of general manager Brian Cashman to determine whether the comments would disqualify the Yankees from pursuing such a player.New York needs a shortstop for at least the first half of 2019 after Didi Gregorius blew out his throwing elbow in Game 2 of the AL Division series , leading to Tommy John reconstructive surgery.“If we’re interested in any player, we sit down with them face to face with their agent and ask them, ‘Where did this come from? What context was around the entire interview? What point were you trying to make? How do you justify it?'” Steinbrenner said. “Because that ain’t going to sell where we play baseball.”Steinbrenner also insisted many players with troubling reputations do just fine in New York.“We have a great clubhouse,” the owner said. “They just don’t put up with a lot of nonsense from players, whether it’s a rookie just coming up or new players — even if they’re veterans — coming in. That’s a problem I’m less worried about. But makeup is a big part of what we look at. It’s not just analytics.”Machado doesn’t seem to be a priority. Mimicking Cashman’s recent comments at the general manager meetings in California , Steinbrenner said the shaky starting pitching must be addressed.In a 3-1 loss to the Red Sox in the ALDS , Masahiro Tanaka was the only starter to last five innings. J.A. Happ, Luis Severino and CC Sabathia each took a loss after combining to give up 14 earned runs in eight innings, an ERA of 15.75.“We have to add pieces,” Steinbrenner said. “Our starting pitching struggled in October. That was obvious. Tanaka was the only one who had good start in the Division Series, so we’ve got work to do.”Steinbrenner didn’t rule out another huge contract. The Yankees already have Giancarlo Stanton http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-david-justice-jersey , who is guaranteed $270 million over the next decade unless he opts out of the deal following the 2020 season. Machado is likely to seek an even bigger deal.“Who is the person? How old are they? What are their abilities? What is their injury history? Do we really need that particular position?” Steinbrenner said, describing how he would approach another megadeal. “I’m not against looking. We will leave no stone unturned.”In the end, the mantra is simple.World Series or Bust — especially after the rival Red Sox claimed the World Series championship.“Look, our goal is to win the world championship, so it’s going to hurt me no matter who it is,” he said. “But clearly, having our biggest rival do it hurts more. Absolutely.”On other subjects:— Steinbrenner said he’s hopeful his late father will be selected for the Hall of Fame. George Steinbrenner is among 10 candidates on the Today’s Game Era ballot , which will surely set up plenty of debate over whether seven World Series titles and 11 AL pennants are enough to offset two lengthy suspensions from the game. “I feel he deserves to be in, and a lot of other people do too,” Hal Steinbrenner said. “I think it’s just a matter of time.”— The Yankees owner declined to comment on his team’s plans to buy back the 80 percent stake in the YES Network sold to 21st Century Fox from 2012-14. Steinbrenner did indicate new investors likely would own a majority stake in the network, while the team retained control over content and presentation. It had a similar arrangement with Fox.“Our ownership would be in all likelihood in the same ballpark,” he said. “But more important than how many points of equity we own, it’s the ability to maintain control of the broadcast, the content, everything we always had, everything Fox was great at accepting.” ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Triple plays are rare enough to begin with. Jurickson Profar and the Texas Rangers turned one that was especially unusual Thursday night.In fact, it had been more than a century since there was another one like it in the majors.“It was an all-around heads-up play by Profar R.A. Dickey Jersey ,” Texas manager Jeff Banister said. “Very slow heartbeat in that moment.”Profar started the defensive gem at third base and later homered to help the Rangers rally from an early five-run deficit for an 8-6 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.Texas pulled off the sixth triple play in franchise history in the fourth inning. With the bases loaded, David Fletcher hit a low liner toward third that Profar picked on a short hop with a dive to his right. Playing near the bag, he quickly stepped on third to force out Eric Young Jr. and tagged Taylor Ward, who had stumbled off the base into foul territory. Profar then threw to second baseman Rougned Odor for the third out.Just to be sure, Odor chased down Kole Calhoun and tagged him between first and second.“Every runner thought it was a line drive,” Profar said, “so that’s why we got the triple play.”It was the majors’ first triple play without retiring the batter since June 3, 1912, when the Brooklyn Dodgers turned the trick against the Cincinnati Reds.“Yeah, it was kind of confusing the way it happened,” Fletcher said.Odor singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth after an out call that would have ended the inning was reversed. Nomar Mazara went deep in his return from the disabled list, and Joey Gallo also homered for the Rangers.Texas scored three runs in the eighth as Justin Anderson (3-3), the seventh of eight Angels pitchers in a “bullpen game,” allowed the first four batters to reach base.The Angels, whose starting rotation has been decimated by injuries all season, are 0-6 in “bullpen games.”Career reliever Taylor Cole, making his second career start, both this week http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-scott-kazmir-jersey , was staked to a 5-0 lead when Texas starter Ariel Jurado allowed the first five Angels batters to score. But Cole retired only three of eight batters.Matt Moore (2-6) followed Jurado with two scoreless innings for his first win since April 17 and the 29-year-old’s first career victory in relief.Of Los Angeles’ eight pitchers, only Noe Ramirez worked two innings.“We’ll have most of the guys be able to at least pitch some tomorrow,” manager Mike Scioscia said.NOTHING NEW ON TROUTAngels OF Mike Trout remained with his family following the death of his 24-year-old brother-in-law, Aaron Cox, on Wednesday. Trout was eligible to come off the 10-day disabled list Thursday. He hasn’t played since Aug. 2 after jamming his wrist on a feet-first slide into third base.WAIT AND SEE FOR BELTRERangers 3B Adrian Beltre missed his second straight game after leaving Monday’s game with a hamstring injury. The team will wait a few days before deciding whether to put the 39-year-old on the disabled list for the third time this season — each because of an injured hamstring. “I don’t feel that bad,” Beltre said. “So, wait a couple days to make a decision on that.”CALHOUN STAYS HOTCalhoun went 3 for 4 with his 17th homer and is hitting .304 with 16 home runs in 50 games since returning from the disabled list on June 18. He previously hit .145 with one homer in 50 games.SHORT HOPSRangers OF Willie Calhoun was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock to make room for Mazara. . Angels LHP Ty Buttrey and RHP Osmer Morales made their major league debuts, giving Los Angeles a club-record 14 players who have done so this season and a team-record 56 players who have appeared in a game this year. … Texas acquired RHP Kelvin Gonzalez from Kansas City for international slot money.TRAINER’S ROOMRangers LHP Mike Minor was scratched from Friday’s scheduled start with back stiffness. … Texas OF Delino DeShields hurt a finger batting in the seventh inning and left the game. . Angels RHP Hansel Robles (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day DL, retroactive to Wednesday. To replace him, Buttrey was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake.UP NEXTAngels RHP Odrisamer Despaigne (2-0, 5.31 ERA), acquired Tuesday from Miami, will become Los Angeles’ 14th pitcher to make a start this season. The franchise record is 17, set in 1967.Rangers RHP Drew Hutchison (1-2, 6.07), making his third start for Texas, hasn’t won since getting a relief win for Philadelphia on March 30.
