    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    I got my MiLB.tv subscription again for $25 and I'll be buying my Indy Indians tickets to watch Eloy and hopefully Cease in the 2nd week of April, so at least I have that to look forward to.

    Several people said that to me today at work. They assumed it was my dog or a grandparent.

    Goodbye Soxtalk

    Nashville is awesome. Sure you can always take your kids to Vanderbilt games and see what elite talent looks like. I got a buddy who is a musician down in Nashville and I have always said I wanted to go to some Vandy baseball games.

    I can't believe I have to leave for work right now. I don't know how I am going to make it through an entire day when everyone will either be asking me what the fuck happened, or giving me shit for being confident that the Sox would land him. Or just Cubs fans in general likely throwing shade.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    The part that really pisses me off the most is that the Sox were clinging to their bargain deal with Manny for so long and not meeting his actual demands, so Lozano just waited and waited around long enough for some other team to suddenly jump in, and that is seemingly exactly what happened. Sox got cute with their money and played games with their future, and got burned. If this was the Phillies or Yankees outbidding the Sox, then it would still suck, but knowing that they likely lost Manny because they failed to budge on their discount for so long is such a kick in the fucking balls. And if they weren't willing to go $300M on Manny, then they sure as hell won't for Harper or Arenado either. I honestly have no idea if the Sox will ever sign the biggest of fish during this current ownership. Sure, maybe we will sign a couple of $100M deals in the next 24 months, but the only chances we have at superstars are going to be in this system, or via trade.

    He came out with his "story" and it's utter horseshit. The TL:DR of it is that he says the Padres covert meeting with Harper was just to throw people off of the scent that they ACTUALLY wanted Machado all along and to lull the Sox in to a false sense of security with Machado, then secretly offer Machado a $300M deal on the sly. And it ALMOST worked, before he (the MLB Insider twitter troll) BUSTED the story open on Twitter that Padres were in on Machado, and then the White Sox cartoonishly leaped out of their skin in freight and quickly upped their offer to about $305M (area code 305 reference, cute) just in the knick of time to save the day! Machado to the White Sox announced soon! What a fucking imagination.

    I think he's saying all 3 Front Offices prefer Machado, but the owners in Philly and SD might not be so sure they prefer Machado over Harper, likely because Harper is the bigger marketing play. Harper is more likely to translate to dollars, Machado is more likely to translate to wins. Front Offices want wins, owners want dollars. White Sox FO and ownership seem to both agree on Machado being the best fit. That's how I understand his tweet.

    Big, if true.

    Moustakas to Milwaukee

    The downside to not being Boras' top client. Likely spent most or all of his time working Harper deals and Moose gets a screwed over for the 2nd year in a row.

    FG Top 130 prospects

    No, because Eloy IS a stud hitter right now. Bush is so young and just getting started that to be content with him ALREADY having to move to 1B sucks not only because he's so young still, but also because he hasn't proven he's a good enough hitter at high levels that it won't matter much.
