“Per @JonHeyman on Manny Machado to Cubs: ‘Some see the Chicago Cubs as a perhaps the most logical landing spot in a trade. One rival executive suggested that the Cubs could send starting shortstop Addison Russell as part of a package to land Machado.'”
Cubs fans have a huge choice. Harper or Machado? Obviously one makes more sense than the other, but both seem possible. If the Cubs wanted Machado, then of course they would put Russell in a package deal. There is no way he stays, and there is no way he goes alone.
In my opinion, this quote is kind of bland. A lot of teams make a lot of sense for Manny, it just depends on the reason why.
