  1. Depressingly in retrospect the Sox offer blew the Tigers' out the water.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    The part that I can't get over is once the Padres entered the fray the Sox HAD to realize there were only two outcomes: 1) PR nightmare with an infuriated fanbase that now won't be satiated with anything short of Harper, which becomes significantly harder with Machado gone. 2) Goodwill with a fanbase that will finally feel vindicated for buying into a rebuild that saw a Hall of Fame pitcher get traded away for a strikeout machine an injured flamethrower (I still like Moncada and Kopech, but now everything is the negative lens)

    Goodbye Soxtalk

    Until the explanation regarding your career I was like "Damn, I'm mad about not signing Machado but not move out of the city to Nashville mad."

    All of the damage control makes it worse.

    Let me stay back and kill myself Neil Funk.
  7. The only way to save face is Harper, maybe Keuchel, pray Madrigal becomes an elite 2B and forces Moncada to 3rd and Moncada becomes something there.

    1) Kenny needs to shut the fuck up for the love of God this is like pouring gasoline on a dumpster fire on loan from GarPax 2) Trade Alonso and Jay. They don't deserve the hate they'll get.

    If they never intended 300M they never should have bothered.

    I don't know who I hate more right now between our front office and the Padres.

    Amazon HQ2

    Re: The polling - I wasn't dismissing the polling, I was dismissing one article written by a person as blanket outrage for New Yorkers. It has long been Greg's MO and was the substantive base of many of his troll threads back when the Buster existed. If you go back and look at my "insanely awful post," I wish the deal had been done better and people celebrating Amazon just packing up and leaving are foolish. Now, I really want Chicago to get it to help revitalize the area. Re: Moving back - I'd love to move back to Illinois. My girlfriend wants to get out of the city even more than I do, but career wise, she's even more tied to major metros than I am.

    Amazon HQ2

    The jab was at Greg's news gathering of choice. I love the midwest and "flyover country." I miss driving through the middle of IL and MO and would take it 10/10 over the subway here. I miss I-57 and I-70, so please, reexamine your conclusions. And no, Amazon has no responsibility for it. But that's why New Yorkers were mad. New York had a bargaining chip with it's location and Amazon was only going to worsen those situations with a campus in Long Island City. Alternatively, as the Times put it, if De Blasio and Cuomo and fixed that shit prior, this might not have been a problem. But they've repeatedly fucked it up and the only political challengers to them since I've been here have been, well, awful.

    Jussie Smollett/Chicago police nice work

    Do everyone a favor and keep everything related to the case and not bring politics into this. The Buster was closed for a reason. Keep talking about Smollett and the case in here, that's it. To extrapolate it into the political sphere at large will result in the closure of this thread.
