  1. Did a writer with that last name seriously say that? At least he's covered all his bases.

    Harper: Nightengale suggests Phillies are favored

    Agree 100% Greg. They said they would spend for the right players and here they doing their best to sign one of them. Curious about who else they have their sites on. Would have to think a starting pitcher.
  3. Wouldn't put it past Boras to drag this into February. JD Martinez didn't sign until February 19th last year and Boston was pretty much in a one team race to sign him. There are some similarities between the Boston/Martinez and Philly/Harper negotiations.
  4. And it was a good first post. Does the board still say something like that after the first post?

    Harper: Nightengale suggests Phillies are favored

    I hear you. I'm invigorated by the front office still being in the mix with a sizable offer on the table and seemingly willing to go higher. I didn't think the Sox had a snowballs chance in hell but the FO has changed that.
  6. Go get drunk and then pass out. Sleep in tomorrow from a hangover and wake up to the signing Machado. If that ain't the recipe for success then I don't know what is.

    Harper: Nightengale suggests Phillies are favored

    I like your upbeat outlook Greg, well done.
  8. Jack you're looking too far into all the rumors. It's January 15th and the Sox are one of two teams left in the bidding for Machado. The Sox wouldn't be in it this late in the game if they and their offers weren't serious.
  9. I like happy positive thread titles. Well done.
  10. Letting the humor fly tonight, I like it.
  11. Great point. If the offer was 7/210 from Chicago then I can't help but think the Yanks would still be in it. And they are not.
  12. Exactly. The rumors are all over the place so what's the point in getting emotional? I'm laughing at all this because for every rumor there is an opposing rumor that follows like clockwork. Later tonight someone will post a tweet with Levine spewing what Nightengale just said.
  13. I believe this as well and I've been one of the biggest pessimists about landing one of these guys.
  14. And one by one they begin to lineup on the ledge. Relax. Just another tweet to generate some buzz.
  15. This is the year for Manny to get his long term deal. If he waits a year he will be competing with Arenado.
