    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    I get it. Im not extremely happy with it either. Hope Im wrong but i trust my source since they generally give me insight, no false guarantees

    The pujols comp is ridiculous in my opinion too, byt it has to do with pujols performance before signing 10/240. They expect similar output from machado. Things can always change swiftly

    I dont know that for fact. Id be putting my foot in my mouth if i said that. I just know as of right now, there is not another team willing to offer an AAV near his 32.5m expectations. The pujols comp is a sticking point to the frustration

    Not True. KW is always involved in FA and international signings . May not be the lead negotiater, but normally always present and opinionated.

    Yes. Its an attempt to get Philly to shift focus from Bryce to Manny, and shut out Sox on signing by “matching” their offer.

    I agree, thats why JR is leading these negotiations and KW is not involved at this point. Jr beleives thats a fair comp. Organization is split on his value.

    I should add that KW is not involved in negotiations at this point.

    So I know Im some random . I dont have breaking news, but maybe I can lend some insight on these negotiations. Machado and Pujols share an agent. If you remember, Pujols was given a 10/240 at 24m AAV coming off his age 31 Season, unfortunately guys, thats the stickig point with JR and co. Lozano and Machado are frustrated with the comparison. Theres a 5 year age difference between Machado and Pujols with a different defensive skill set. With the lack of interested teams and realization that they wont hit their target AAV; Lozano leaked the 7/175 contract to the media with the attempt to attract new suitors for Machado to hopefully drive the price up. However, theres simply not a robust market for Machado. Yankees would of been aggressive on Machado in the 20-23m AAV range more on a 3-5 year deal. Jerry and Co are just as frustrated with the leaks as we are. They are trying very hard, but negotiations with the WS have stalled, With Lozano pulling to find a mystery team or two to maximize his value. JR and co. truly beleive that 25m AAV is a competitive offer. If the sox don’t get off the pujols comp as far as AAV goes, we are either going to be outbid or we wont see a signing until Spring training from what I hear. Atleast the on the positive side, theres not a team that values manny as a 30m+ players... The Sox will not bid against themselves, thats where the frustration is coming from here.
