    It’s a lot less surprising when you realize that this is the third year of a planned rebuild, the Sox have sucked for many more years than 3, and Hahn missed on his #1 target that he hinted at since last offseason. The Sox also aren’t doing a very good job of dispelling the fan notion that they are cheap.

    The stiffs Hahn gave $50 million to is the same amount of money he missed out on Machado by. Give me Machado’s youth and talent over Jon Jay and Yonder Alonso’s “leadership” any day of the week.
  3. Kris Bryant will likely end up earning a total of $70 to $75 million by going through the arbitration process year after year. Eloy has a long way to go to be as good as Bryant but it’s probably the best comparison. $43 million for 6 years or $77 million for 8 years has the potential to be a big savings of money if Eloy is everything he is expected to be.

    The Sox front office whiffed on their number one target this offseason and signed a bunch of stiffs, minus the two relievers they acquired, for the very same amount of money they refused to give Machado — around $50 million. Why are you surprised that Sox fans would be upset, especially after Hahn has talked about Machado for over a year?
  5. Doh, forgot about Moncada moving to 3B and Madrigal. RF could be a nice FA area.
  6. Rendon is now the next best guy available and he just turned down the Nationals extension offer. Sox still have a hole at 3B and I don’t expect anything but DH potential for Burger.
  7. With the additional hindsight of the Arenado and Trout extensions, I definitely wish they would have given Machado the $300 million. It’s obvious they won’t get another shot at a top 26 year old FA for as low as $300 million again. The price is only going up for the top talent.
  8. Does this mean he’s on the roster for opening day?
  9. Now this is a great deal. 6-years, $43 million guaranteed. With both team options exercised it becomes 8-years, $77 million. Sure wish Machado was on the left side of the field with him.

    You reap what you sew. The Sox have no one to blame but themselves.

    Why are my expectations unrealistic? Why do you assume people are pissed off because they want changes to the Sox ownership and management?

    Go read the post again. He also asked why the Sox don’t continually succeed like other franchises.

    So far, he has questioned why anyone wanted the same Sox management that failed at drafting to run the rebuild. He has also blamed injuries. Finally, he has apparently decided to throw out “I told you so’s” to the Sox fans who thought the Sox front office would wisely spend money during the rebuild process to improve the team. Ultimately, his arguments all point to the Sox ownership and management being terrible so I don’t know why he doesn’t just say that.

    Injuries prevented the Sox from spending money on top free agents to improve their team as opposed to signing trash free agents and pocketing the rest of the unspent payroll? I didn’t realize this.

    That is more of an indictment of Sox ownership and management than a chance for “I told you so’s” to other Sox fans. It is almost incomprehensible for the Sox not to have one of Machado or Harper right now other than having one of the worst owners and front offices in all of baseball.
