    **Movies that we watch in 2019** Thread

    Vice was entertaining but really did not care for the film's editing and flow. Bale was outstanding however.

    How could that be in reference to anyone but Machado and Harper? Those are the only two that make sense in the rebuild.

    2018-9 MLB off season free agency thread

    If the Sox have payroll, absolutely would. He could net you 2-3 really good prospects at the deadline.

    Why would the Dodgers tried to get him back? Turner and Seager are their 3B and SS. And Dodgers have said no position change for Seager.

    I can read the comments from Machado's dad as being either good for the Sox or bad. Good in that we are a team less talked about generally than the Phillies, Yankees and Dodgers. Bad in that we have been associated with Machado and maybe the comment means the mystery team will get him.

    I have a hard time buying that the Sox view Pujols and Machado similarly. Machado is way younger reaching free agency and has much more defensive value. The comp makes no sense.

    What should they be angry about? I am extremely critical of the White Sox, but why would they bid more than necessary? Who else has a better offer on the table? Of course this all assumes the report is true, a big if.

    Exactly.

    My hope is that the silence means Lozano and the Sox are hammering out the fine points of Machado's contract and so busy with that endeavor, there is no time for leaking (all types of imagine leaking).

    Coffee is for closers. Manny is being converted to a relief pitcher!

    I don't understand why people think this deal is a lowball. It's the second largest contract in AAV in MLB history, not to mention, apparently no one has a better offer on the table. If the AAV is true, no one can justly claim the Sox did not offer their best.

    Isn't it the second biggest contract in MLB history in terms of AAV?

    Seems like Passan/Gomez leaks were from the agent side, trying to keep Philly (and Yankees? Mystery team?) bidding up. Nightengale got info from Sox to slow down any other teams upping the bid. At this point, also seems like both Harper and Machado are waiting for each other to sign. They both probably think they are better than the other, and want to use the other's contract as leverage.

    At the bottom of Nightengale article, he basically says Sox are expected to sign Machado. On phone, otherwise, would have copied and pasted his language.
