We traded Manny Machado to every team. Here’s whom he helps most

If the competitive landscape of the NBA determined the tilt of the North American continent, you might have noticed a bit more of a westward lean Monday morning. If you haven’t heard,  LeBron James announced his departure for Los Angeles, where he will try to resurrect the Lakers’ on-hiatus dynasty. Just like that, with a news release, the hierarchy of an entire league was upended.

There simply is no baseball equivalent. If Mike Trout were suddenly released from his  Los Angeles Angels contract and decided he wanted to play for the Baltimore Orioles, the O’s would be better and the Angels would be worse. But the effect would be fractional compared to James’ move. It’s the nature of the sport.
