TAMPA If Manny Machado were, say, 31 years old instead of 26, he probably would have picked the Yankees over the Padres, Carlos Beltran hinted. I do believe one thing: As a player, at the stage where he is, I can understand why he ended up in San Diego, Beltran said in the clubhouse at George M. Steinbrenner Field on Tuesday. Beltran, now a special assistant to general manager Brian Cashman, was among the Yankees contingent at the dinner. Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge said he didnt think the team needed to make another big splash after winning 100 games, finishing second in the American League East and going to the AL Division Series.
