    Dane Dunning: No TJS just yet, rest and monitor

    Turns out being able to successfully identify talent and develop players is extremely important.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Definitely seems noteworthy that teams all collectively decided to stop spending on free agents at once.

    I don't mean to be rude, but can we stop posting tweets like this? Maybe *one* random person out there does have an accurate source, but it's quite evident 99% of them don't.

    Agreed. The market won't look any better for players until there's a new CBA.

    I'm not saying he's wrong, but if Rodgers' tweet were negative, it'd be getting dismissed on here. I doubt he actually knows anything.

    I would guess that the track record of 23 year olds with career MiLB OBP's of .380 typically become very productive big league hitters. There is significant upside in Collins' bat.

    The White Sox should do this before someone else does.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    Isn't the *exact* conversation that's playing out in this thread part of what makes WAR such a useful stat? I think Trout & Mookie have separated themselves from the rest of baseball, but once you get beyond them, I think the batter vs pitcher argument has more to do with the players individual talent than anything else. There's a large cluster of position players & aces that I think you would realistically expect to produce in the ~6 WAR range. here's the combined WAR leaderboard according to FG last season: https://www.fangraphs.com/warleaders.aspx?season=2018&team=all 32 of the top 50 players last season were position players, FWIW.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    I think projecting someone like Madrigal can be very tricky. There are recent examples of shorter players like Mookie, Altuve, Albies, Jose Ramirez etc significantly exceeding their power projections in part because their contact ability is so special. I'm not saying it's *likely*, but I also don't think it's outside the realm of possibilities in a few years Madrigal is actually hitting for more power than Moncada.

    FWIW, projection systems would agree with you. Right now FG has them projected at 70-92. To reach .500 they'd likely need to sign Machado, trade for Joc, and make a significant upgrade to the rotation.

    The White Sox should increase their offer and make it end, imo.

    We *know* Harper turned down 10/300 from the Nationals at the beginning of this off-season. If 10/300 is a make or break offer for Harper/Machado and the Sox aren't willing to pull the trigger, then they were never seriously interested in either player in the first place.

    Seems noteworthy all of the local guys (McGregor, DVS, & Levine) are all reporting something very similar to this. Hopefully their source is wrong or it's just the Sox using them to negotiate in the media.

    Machado is a 26 year old that's currently on a HoF trajectory. I can't ever recall the Sox acquiring someone like him before.
