08:44 AM ET 08.31 | Since being called up Aug. 9, Manny Machado has started 19 consecutive games at third base for the Orioles. Pretty impressive for a 20-year-old, who was drafted with the third overall pick in 2010 to be the shortstop of the future and had played just two minor league games at third base in his career. ... "Really good," Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy said when asked to evaluate Machado's defense. "I don't know how I would do if I moved over there." ... The 30-year-old Hardy, who is signed through 2014, said he knows he may have to switch spots with Machado at some point, but right now he said he is concentrating on doing his job while watching the rookie excel at his new one. "Does it cross my mind? Yeah. I'm not going to lie."

I see you sent me an email but my mailbox is running a process and will be locked up for a few minutes. Anything critical?

Kind of early for thread death, isn't it?
