Red Sox and Orioles on ESPN. Watching so I can have intelligent conversations with all the Red Sox fans here. They posted a career comparison of Harper and Machado. Harper has an OPS about 70 points higher. Interesting.

I don't think anyone would argue that Machado is the better offensive player when both are healthy. But Machado has the clear advantage in defensive value.

I'd probably take Harper over Machado if I was betting on who would have an 8+ win season, but the reverse if I was betting on who would have a 6+ win season.
