    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Well, there is still one out there now. Of course there is about a zero percent chance he signs with the White Sox.

    If they learn one thing I hope it's to keep their mouths shut if they don't plan on actually ponying up when the contract offers hit market rate.

    If this isn't something to be disgruntled by then what is? I am 30 years old and this is the lowest point in my White Sox fandom. I lost all faith in what little faith I had in the front office. It's one thing to lose a guy you've been after, it's another to leak a ton of details after the fact to try to save face but all those details just make you look even worse.

    If I were any of the young players in the organization I would remember today if the front office ever came to me to sign an extension. They will penny pinch and do everything in their power to not give in to players, all the while failing time and again to bring in quality free agents.

    I'll give you $250 now and $70 more afterwards if I liked it.

    OR THEY COULD HAVE GIVEN HIM 10 YEARS 300 MILLION LIKE HE SIGNED FOR

    This is worse than a cheap owner. This is an incompetent front office. Even when the money was there for them they couldn't close the deal. Only plate appearances (or IP for pitchers) and awards can be offered as incentives. The 30 million extra was probably for MVP, Gold Glove, or Silver Slugger awards.

    Then just offer him the fucking money. These leaks make the team look so much worse. They don't even give people a chance to get over it they just double down on how they fucked up a massive opportunity that was gift wrapped for them.

    With the leaks of the Sox offer and the Hahn and Kenny press conferences it's like a choose your own adventure story of how the White Sox fucked this up. TOO CHEAP: TURN TO PAGE 164 INCOMPETENT NEGOTIATORS: TURN TO PAGE 189

    I didn't go to a game last year, mostly due to having a new born. I will not go to a game this year, mostly due to my total lack of faith in this organization and not wanting to help them monetarily one bit.

    Congrats on this abysmal off-season everyone. At least we all only wasted our time for months on end.
