"The season didn't finish off how we liked. We lost six in a row and our manager is gone ... at the end of the day you have to keep the focus on the bigger picture, which was the overall season," Machado said. "Next year's a new season. Everybody in here knows what it takes. Keep that in mind and prepare for that, get ready for that, because it's going to be something special."
Machado, asked to put his season in perspective, said he didn't set any personal goals.
