    Machado is gone. Now what?

    This is too far.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Their actions speak differently. They also have one more chance this year to prove it, but they won't.

    Harper Latest: Smoke around the Phightin Phils

    Six months ago 10/300 was the assumed starting point. Unless the Sox knew his market was going to be depressed ahead of time, which is why they were in, the idea that they refused to bid that, doesn't make any sense.

    Harper Latest: Smoke around the Phightin Phils

    It is impossible to combine this with the idea that we had interest in signing both.

    Harper Latest: Smoke around the Phightin Phils

    I said it in another place, but the Phillies have also struck out on both Corbin and Machado after making their "stupid money" comment coming into this winter. It will be interesting to see who panics first, though I believe it will be Philly, but quietly hoping it is Jerry.

    Harper Latest: Smoke around the Phightin Phils

    Signing Harper is the one way to redeem this off season. Hopefully the front office isn't just sitting in an echo chamber today, and realizes that this is a PR disaster for them. Second, Scott Boras has to be grinning like the Cheshire Cat. The greatest possible thing to happen was for a team other than Philly or the White Sox to win the Machado sweepstakes. Now he has two what should be desperate teams in the final bidding for his biggest product.

    It is a tough call. They walked away from Corbin. They walked away from Machado. Does that make it easier or harder to walk away from Harper. That probably depends on if the White Sox panic, or stick to their guns.

    It's Ron. No one really takes him seriously anyway.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    This is the least surprising part of it all. That access is too important to burn.

    Harper Latest: Smoke around the Phightin Phils

    You know, this could be nearly as important of a signing to the Phillies as the Sox. They not only went into the off season talking about signing these guys, but they have the "stupid money" quote hanging over their off season. I wonder if the Sox will step up, but I feel like the Phillies have a lot more to lose.

    They have said all the right things, but they still can't win the big one.

    Goodbye Soxtalk

    I would value taking control of your own life over being bitter and having hurt feelings about things that happened decades ago in sports. Yes. That seems obvious to me, but some apparently enjoy being miserable and bragging about it. Notice only one of us is angry here? Who here is negative and appalled? Who is miserable? Whose feelings are hurt? It sure isn't mine, it is you who is using these terms to describe the fan base you include yourself in.

    Jerry will never sell to Cuban. Never. In fact Cuban buying the Mavs was a 29-1 vote, Jerry against, IIRC.

    I thought you were a Cubs fan?
