    Or they learned their lesson and won’t get burned again being out in public with interest. Really what advantage to the get-? If they don’t get him they were out and if they somehow get him- it was stealth mode and fans are happy.

    Highly doubt it.

    They had Renteria practice Yoan out at 3rd and say you may see him out there at the opener. Lozano is trying to leverage them into increasing offer. This was their response. Everyone step back from the ledge.

    This is getting ridiculous. Pure negotiations. Lozano has been controlling the message the last 2 days. Now the Sox responded. I still hear good things and Hector just said he still thinks that he signs with Sox. Take a deep breath.

    What are you going to eat ? Don’t be so sure.

    I’m the most optimistic guy and have no reason not to be but ... no way it’s both. For these reasons: Reinsdorf is trying to build value of franchise for his family and investors. Saddling franchise with both does not do that. And Chris Sale is a FA next year.

    Not going to be both. It’s one or other. And this is the Machado thread- You figure it out.

    Again - I shared very reliable information and it didn’t go according to what I was told. I didn’t post like others until I heard more. And I’m optimistic what I was told a month ago is going to happen finally. So have at it but I’d be optimistic.

    I said hours ago it won’t be in Chicago. It won’t. And yes I hear there is smoke. Just haven’t got the final confirmation.

    Yes it will be in Arizona “when” it happens.

    Most of us who have contacts, try to use our info in a way that won’t compromise who told us. And remember we are fans too! But when things don’t turn out in the way we are told- posters really make it personal. So what’s the point in trying to share what we may know? Bottom line - the organization still thinks they get him. They have worked hard to do it. They aren’t being cheap or lazy but are squaring off against an agent who needs to make a payday for himself and future business. That is all. Have a great night and trust Hahn.

    https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/mlb-free-agency-scott-boras-may-have-a-creative-contract-solution-for-the-bryce-harper-and-manny-machado-markets/amp/ This is a great explanation.

    Swell opt definitely at play here. And actually could make Olney et al. and Passan right It’s 7 years at something lower but likely 8 at $240 million and could swell to a longer period as Passan suggests.

    Remember there are big egos involved here between Lozano and Boras. I’ve said that before. Who benefits the most from such a low offer? Scott Boras right? He and Lozano had a nasty break up in business and they both are competing for a finite market right now. Pure speculation but sure seems logical.
