It remains to be seen where the Baltimore Orioles will send Manny Machado before the trade deadline, but Bernie Williams would love to see the 26-year-old in pinstripes.

“I think he’ll look great in a Yankee uniform,” the four-time World Series champion said on Taz & The Moose “Obviously we (would love to) have a player of that caliber (be a) part of that lineup that is already insane.”

The Yankees (60-31) lead the majors in home runs (154), are second in runs and RBIs, and are fifth in OBP (.332). Machado is hitting .314 with 23 homers, 63 RBIs and a .383 OBP this season.

“Obviously it’s (up to) the front office to determine what’s more important for the team,” Williams said. “But there’s no doubt about the fact that he would be a great addition to the team. Whether or not they make it a priority to sign him or to get any more pieces to complement this great team, they definitely have a chance to make a splash and make it really big this year.”
