    Manny: A Series of Unfortunate Non-events

    Hahaha! A “Lethal dose of poison!” has been injected into the AL central!! Sox fans are going crazy. Welcome to the sWo the Sox World Order. Who will be the next signing, Bryce? Markakis? Lol

    Manny: A Series of Unfortunate Non-events

    Rick Hahn’s kids are big WWE fans. It would be pretty awesome if Rick announced the signing during the first town hall meeting at Soxfest and Machado came out from behind the curtain in a Sox hat. It would be similar to an nWo recruitment right there.

    Manny: A Series of Unfortunate Non-events

    If the Machado camp is waiting for 10 years, 325 and we are at 7 years for 200, I think both the Machado camp & White Sox are simply in the middle of negotiations. I can see them meeting somewhere in the middle at 8 years, $280 million with potential bonus $$ that can reach as high as $300. Between that and an opt out after year 4 or 5, that would likely be too good for Machado to refuse. Get it done, Rick!

    The fact that Harper is still talking to the Nats is telling me that the market isn’t as strong for his services as once thought. At least the $$$ aspect to it. This can be a very good thing for the White Sox.

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    I think Clark simply wants to be ‘the guy’ who claimed to break the news. He is claiming to have used his connections to the Orioles roster (Manny’s former team), as an intel to get leaked info. Manny already told his friends that he simply “prefers the Yankees” as MLB.com previous reported, but that doesn’t mean that will be the team he ends up with. It’s all about long term fit, $$$, and long term chance at winning. Morosi brings up wonderful points that favor the white Sox at the end of the video I posted.

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    I find it extremely odd that this Clark guy is so certain that Machado is signing with the Yankees. According to Morosi on the MLB Network, Machado hasn’t event talked financial numbers and offers with the Phillies, Yankees or White Sox yet. http://mlb.com/r/article?ymd=20181228&content_id=297610378&vkey=news_mlb&c_id=mlb (watch the end of the video on top of page) Seems more and more that Clark is grasping at straws and hoping Machado does sign with his favorite childhood team. As of now, Clark looks foolish.

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    The more and more this Clark guy talks, the less confident I am that he was right about his “intel”. Machado is still very much in the running for the White Sox. And according to Steve Phillips, so is Harper. (Probably more so) dont stop believing Sox fans....

    That’s a good point. And a wonderful problem to have. That team is going to be filthy good for a long time.

    Assuming MM does sign with NY. Who do they move in a deal? Gregorious to make room at SS or Andujar to make room at 3B? Granted they would’nt have to make this decision until Didi returns from the DL in June, still something to monitor going forward. I personally would love Andujar at 3B.

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    Well I can’t really trust Hahn or KW to sign a whale. Other than the Cuban international signings, they have never done that.

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    Bruce Levine said this morning on his “Inside the Clubhouse” show that Moncada will be the starting 3b for the White Sox. They are going to move Sanchez back to 2B until Madrigal is ready. To me that tells me that many of the local media members are pretty confident MM will sign elsewhere. It looks like their big moves have already been made. Alonso, McCain and Nova. Yay! From 62 wins to 68? Or is 68 wins a reach?

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    Great post! I agree. The Yonder deal makes zero sense unless it was used as leverage to land Machado. If he does sign with NY, Hahn and co will once again look damn foolish. It will obviously be played as a potential “flip at the deadline” but I’m not buying that.

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    So this Dick Clark guy may have just confused the “leaning toward the Yankees” report to it actually going down? Perhaps that’s what Machados former teammate just reiterated back to Dick Clark? I think it might be a case of the ‘ol “leaning toward” and “actually signing” confusion. Because we all know, Machado first preference is NY, but let’s be real... it’s all about the $$$$.

    Bryce Harper Updates

    From everything i'm seeing thus far out of Vegas. It's: Phillies, Dodgers and White Sox for Harper Phillies, Yankees and White Sox for Machado Yet, people still are saying the Cubs are a real threat to land Harper despite all of their current financial commitments. When do guys like Rizzo, Bryant and Baez all become free agents? Because if they sign Harper, doesn't that significantly reduce their chances for retaining these guys?
