    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    I was going to wait for Harper to officially sign (as I was holding out hope that the White Sox would swope in), but it seems incredibly unlikely that the White Sox will move on Harper. So this ends my White sox fandom. It's been a fun ride SoxTalk! One of the best places to talk baseball on the internet. I'm moving over to be a Padre fan from here on out. I'll spare you from any reasoning as, I'm sure you all are well aware of the reasons. Take care friends, I won't be back to check any replies. Kind regards.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    No problem, I'll refrain from posting further. I will state that I was the only one posting actual Harper news in the last 10-20 posts here.

    Prior to my time as a Padre fan, however I'll shoot: We are in a rebuilding phase that is about to commence into greatness. #1 farm system in the majors leads to World series success. We also got burned by some poor FA signings before with the Kemp/Krimbel/Shields fiasco if I recall. In any sense, there's really no defending the White Sox organization and by extension the Bulls.

    Hard to move on when there is still the smallest bit of hope that the White Sox sign Harper. All will be forgiven if that is the case.

    I am a Padres fan and not a troll. I'm just a tortured soul waiting for the Harper saga to conclude so that I can eliminate the ties to the White sox once and for all (in my heart of hearts I still have no fathomable idea why the White Sox don't sign Harper, but their organization may be the least intelligent in all of baseball).

    I've had this user account since 2004. No other accounts. Get over it -- I'm actually posting news in this thread (pads meeting with Harper today, Nats officially OUT). You are just spamming it. I'll be gone as soon as the White Sox 100% officially don't sign Harper.

    https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/nationals/exclusive-nats-owner-mark-lerner-says-they-havent-heard-bryce-harper-and-scott-boras NATS HAVE MOVED ON FROM HARPER We called this months ago here. But now it truly leaves PADS PHILLIES GIANTS PADRES ARE THE DARK HORSE and I think it may happen.

    In terms of money, it's only a 1 year commitment to a heavy payroll for my Pads. 4 year commitment to an average payroll. My padres can afford Harper absolutely... it's just a matter of it not making a lot of sense IMO. But if Preller wants him, he's going to get him because Harp doesn't want to be in Philly or SF.

    Don't get me wrong -- I'd love Harper here in SD. But from a net benefit analysis it doesn't make much sense compared to Machado. Machado replaced a bunch of no-names competing for 3b on the Padres. Harper would be taking a spot from Renfroe/Reyes/Margot/Janikowski/Cordero/Myers I mean, there's only 3 spots available in the OF for that group. The net win there is much less and from my analytical point of view -- not worth it. But I'm still rooting for my pad's to get Harper because HELL that is awesome.

    SAYS OTHERWISEEEEE This race is down to the Phillies and the Padres and it should end soon and don't be surprised when my Pads land him if Philly won't pay up and instead makes the same mistakes as your White Socks.

    lmao, you don't actually believe this, do you? The Padres claim they have interest and they seem to have the budget. As a padre fan, I'm much more concerned about the fact that they have like 6 major league OF'rs already for 3 spots and adding Harper would make it really awkward. I don't think my boys need Harper, but hell -- if they can get him why not.

    P.S. I hear my Padres are meeting with Harper TODAY. Prepare to be SHOOK.

    Just like how the White Sox had to sign one of them? The Padres are the organization that is run like a shark that smells blood. I'll be gone after Harper signs anyway.. just leaving the hope out that Harper signs with the White Sox but it looks dimmer after each passing moment.

    Harper doesn't want to go the Phillies ... I think my Pad's are in the drivers seat here.
