    Sox trade for Yonder Alonso; Alex Call to CLE

    Look, I agree with you. I’m not trying to argue the other side. I’m just trying to present the other side because I don’t think it’s as ridiculous of a question as it might seem. If Machado signs with the Yankees, the Indians’ chances of winning the 2019 World Series go down. If he signs with the Sox, I don’t think their chances change. Of course, this would be a long term deal, and that’s why I ultimately agree with you.

    What if they think their best chance to win a World Series is in the next couple years, and Machado to the Yankees would make that tough? They could think Machado to the Sox still won’t make us better than them.

    If you are the Indians, would you rather have Machado go to the White Sox or the Yankees?

    Can you imagine if Machado signs because of this, which then causes Harper to sign? Alex Call will turn into the greatest prospect/draft pick of all time. (kidding, of course...well, sort of)

    Where do they start the season?

    My outfield guesses: AAA: Basabe, Eloy, Cordell (also Tilson and Polo) AA: Rutherford, Gonzalez, Booker (also Fisher and Adolfo when he returns) A: Robert, Walker, Dedalow (also Frost)

    Harper part 3

    I guess we’ll just have to sign Machado first to convince Harper to come here.
  7. Or maybe Boras went searching for somebody who had broken one story and offered him money to break a fake story on Harper to the Dodgers (knowing people would believe him because of his previous story)...all in an attempt to get the Sox to increase their offer! Oh my god, that’s it!!! We’re gonna overpay because of it, but at least we will sign him!!!! World Series!!!!!!
  8. I definitely think the Cubs have a chance to sign him, but to say that they are 40,000 times more likely to sign him than the Sox is a bit ridiculous.
  9. But according to him, they are 40,000 times more likely to sign Harper than the Sox.
  10. Can you give me your percentage breakdown on the chances Harper signs with the Cubs, Dodgers, and White Sox?
  11. If you believe it is that unlikely, then which teams do you think have a better chance to sign him?

    White Sox Sign C James McCann

    He's not good defensively? Or most smart teams don't go for that?
  13. I can't really gauge how optimistic the board is sometimes. I guess it depends on the most recent rumor. I'd be interested to see where people stand on this question right now... Gun to your head, do we land at least one of Machado or Harper?
  14. Exactly. And if our prospects are playing well and we makes the playoffs in 2021, he may not want to opt out. I'm doing everything I can to sign him, even if it means an early opt out.
  15. These are the three things that could happen, in order of preference from the White Sox: 1. Sign Harper before SoxFest 2. Sign Harper after SoxFest 3. Don't sign Harper at all The Sox certainly aren't going to be upset if options 1 or 2 happen.
