    Show's over folks: Sox out on Harper per Nightengale

    We’re proud of our trying, and especially proud of Reinsdorf - who opened the change purse and tried to try but couldn’t quite convince Machado our deal was better.

    So then you are holding off making an opinion about losing out on Machado......until we lose out on Harper? I have a feeling your judgement will be fairly light against the White Sox when that moment arrives if you are reserving an opinion after yesterdays disaster

    They unfortunately learned they were wrong. If they signed Harper, a lot of that would go towards an understanding of going outside their comfort zone re: opt outs, AAV, years

    Exactly, they were a mystery team until they took a step forward and met him. Sox may be a mystery team unti they put in an offer; then it will likewise be released in a few days.

    I would forgive them even through that obvious lie because an even more important lesson is they learned very quickly that the fucked up negotiations and wanted to make it right at all costs

    That’s unreasonable to expect their spot at the negotiating table for Harper to be a secret. It’s going to leak out eventually because it benefits Boras’ client for more teams to know

    That would be assuming they threw out an inferior offer (esp when contacted by Lozano two nights ago) brought aboard Machados pals, and suggested they were unwilling to go over 300million for Machado.....all for some level of negotiating genius to be unraveled with Harper. One that goes against everything that we just witnessed Id be more willing to believe all resources were placed with Machado, as the recruiting effort with Jay and Alonso suggested. Now with their failures, Plan C will be formed involving Harper. Plan B was assembling a collection of tier 2 players and calling it the next step

    Machado’s Missing $50 Million?

    What is the smarter path then? If you’re answer is to heavily rely upon international signings and the draft, well, let’s start seeing the results. Also lets start raising our expectations. Our next pick in the draft? I’ll just assume he’ll be a perennial 6 WAR player. They are selecting third, and I don’t care about the crapshoot of the draft; it’s what has to be done. What other path leads to a championship? We are not signing top tier FAs so forget about that. We are probably not making any more trades for prospects, so no more pipeline from outside the organization. If we’re expecting to strike gold with a few reclamation projects or rule 5 signings, good luck. We both desperately need our current crop of players to succeed, and have a steady supply of talent to supplement and sustain our (hopeful) playoff run. It was even more necessary after losing out on Machado. He could have made up for our lack of depth at the position.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    You can only imagine the smile on JR’s face thinking they’re signing Machado on their terms and suppressing the market.

    I’m afraid to have high expectations. If they fail the entire rebuild is fucked

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Not enough guaranteed money and no opt outs makes an offer similar to Machado laughable. May as well not even call Boras I’m very glad all this contract information came to light too. We all get a great idea of the geniuses at work Although does anyone know what Philadelphia offered?

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    I really don’t believe JR/KW/RH will be upset for too much longer. I’ve been browsing through facebook, twitter, other websites and - by and large - most Sox fans feel we’ve dodged a bullet. It’s amazing, I really feel to be personally affected by today’s events to the extent we are, you have to be a die-hard fan. The kind to sign up on a message board to talk baseball lol. Too bad there aren’t 10,000+ others willing to step away from the Sox to show their disgust

    Reasonable......for us. How likely do you think those options would be exercised at his age?

    If Eloy doesn’t come up blazing we’re in a lot of trouble. There’s no under-selling his importance to this rebuild, we can’t have him taking the Moncada path of waiting years to be worth a damn
