    CarGo will be the Sox right fielder next season. He's the perfect level of washed up/ injury prone this team is used to.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Could be but the fact that they really weren't seemingly in it until the end makes me think they stretched their budget far as possible and see if it would work. It did.

    Harper Latest: Smoke around the Phightin Phils

    Okay, reasons for us to still be optimistic about Harper: 1. The Sox non-tendered Avi. They didn't do that to sign Adam Jones, and it's highly doubtful they did it to give Palka 150 starts there. 2. The Sox met with and recruited Harper at a time when it was already known that Harper had turned down a $300 million offer. Kenny's comment yesterday doesn't make any sense in regards to Harper. 3. The Sox sent Jim Thome to court Harper. IMO they don't do that to not be involved now, when Harper's market really hasn't changed much since that meeting. 4. Bucket said in early January that the Sox felt good about where they were with Harper. Rabbit tweeted yesterday that Reinsdorf had budgets in place for signing both Harper and Machado. 5. The Phillies have their limits. We saw it with Corbin, we saw it with Machado, and Klentak said as much yesterday. They are not unbeatable. 6. After the fall out from yesterday, I fully expect that Boras will reach out to Hahn and/or Jerry. Boras is our best friend right now. His specialty is generating interest when the current interest might be low.

    As long as Uncle Jerry is alive, you're probably right. That is their modus operandi.

    Yes, it will... on a collection of mediocre veteran retreads over the next ten years that the front office will think can turn it around and have career years upon signing for more than they are worth.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    To be fair, one thing we don't know is if the Padres would have gone even higher than 10/300 if the Sox were willing to hit 300?

    They did a good job deceiving us these past few years. Fucking ponzi scheme to fatten up JR’s bank account.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    There's no doubt in my mind about this. One of the reasons this is just so fuckin frustrating.

    Oh hell yeah. Both the Sox and Bulls FO deserves to be roasted, blasted, what have you on a daily basis.

    Hahn is going to be on 670 tonight with Holmes. They're going to try and bullshit this again.

    Harper Latest: Smoke around the Phightin Phils

    This FO really is at the GarPax level of incompetence. They're all a bunch of morons. To be honest Hahn and Kenny were GarPax before GarPax was GarPax. If you paid any attention from 2014-2016 you should have known this was coming.
  15. The Sox publicly released the contract offer for Machado. There's no way they get into another huge contract negotiation right now.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Indeed, we common folk. Not to mention, this is all such BS, you're telling me they didn't get a last look at 10yr / $300? F..k off, they passed, plain and simple
  17. I like to believe Laurence is not going to pitch soft toss. As much as i'm not a huge fan of Parkins, I'd like to hear give Hahn the grilling he gave Pax.

    The should cancel all walk up music and JR can save some money and get rid of the organist. Circus music only should be allowed at Guaranteed Fail Field this season.

    Harper Latest: Smoke around the Phightin Phils

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I hope Holmes has the cajones to ask him about Harper.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Because they dont know what they are doing. The difference between the Padre deal and the Sox deal isnt so great that you dont match as the Sox. I personally think Machado picks the Sox over Padres if the offers are the same. Its just a huge loss for them, and Im not sure that they even understand how bad it is.

    Harper Latest: Smoke around the Phightin Phils

    What is there to be proud of? They lost to a standard contract! No one wants to hear how you built a losing deal that completely misestimated what it would take to get it done. Unbelievable.

    This whole thing literally makes me feel sick...or it's possibly the Buffalo Wild Wings I had last night.
  23. Hahn is going to be on 670 with Holmes later tonight. They're going to try and bullshit this again.

    Harper Latest: Smoke around the Phightin Phils

    I have a hard time believing that the Sox aren't/wouldn't be offering Harper anything other than 7/150 with 250m in "incentives" and "escalators" Our FO is the junior league champions!
