The Yankees trading for Manny Machado is "the dumbest idea I've ever heard," WFAN's Mike Francesa said Tuesday.

"It makes no sense!" Francesa said in a response to a caller who suggested giving up Miguel Andujar for the Orioles star. "If you were going to sign Machado, wait until the season's over and sign him as a free agent. Why would you give up anything?

"The Yankees don't need right-handed power," the WFAN host added. "They need none. Why would they want another right-handed hitter? They have no left-handed hitters! Why would they want a right-handed hitter?"

"You don't," the caller said.

Incredulous, Francesa asked, "Then why would you buy one for $250 million plus?

"Oh my god, that is the dumbest idea I've ever heard, bringing Machado here. Sports is about balance. ... What are you trying to do, have an all right-handed hitting team?"
