Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie debated if now is the time for Matt Klentak to go all-in for Manny Machado.

"I'm all in," Ritchie said. "I want him to be all-in. And I think it makes a ton of sense to make a move here. We're first place in the NL East man! Do you think we can use an all-star shortstop/third baseman, who is hitting .310 with 21 home runs and 60 RBI's named Manny Machado?

"What's the hold up?"

DeCamara disagreed with that philosophy. 

"It's not worth all it would take for a guy that's a rental for two, two and a half months," DeCamara replied. "Jon, I am not nearly as all in as you...I still don't like the idea of this team, in year one of what we hoped will be sustained success...I don't think they should give up on guys that he believes, and that the Baltimore Orioles believe, can be big time players for the future for a guy in Machado who will be here for only two months."

"No, they've got the money to re-up," Ritchie replied. "So do it now and work that all out after the season."
