  1. no, because if you actually watch the interview and listen to Hahn talk about it, he doesn't sounds concerned so i'm not going to be. the process could end tomorrow, it could end in Jan/Feb. enjoy the ride!
  2. and for all we know maybe Harper/Boras are waiting to see how Machado's visits go and what the $$$ value of his contract offers look like... everyone should just sit back, relax and strap it down. LOL we could be in for a long ride.
  3. this is how i see it. JR could have approached Boras telling him let's put aside our past history and let's get this deal done.

    Rosenthal: Could Harper be headed to the southside

    is it too much to ask for both Harper AND Machado for Christmas?

    The 2018 MLB Draft Thread (Tracker in OP)

    would be nice if Bart fell to #4 but i don't see that happening. i figure he goes #2.

    26 K's is a bit concerning.
  13. http://www.rotoworld.com/player/mlb/6242/manny-machado Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Orioles want "two young, controllable starting pitchers" back in a trade for Manny Machado. The Orioles don't expect to re-sign Machado, so they appear willing to seriously consider offers from interested teams. No word on which team might have the advantage in trade talks, but the Cardinals have been mentioned as a possibility. One interesting side note from Rosenthal is that Machado wants to move to shortstop for his final year before free agency. Dec 12 - 12:35 PM interesting.

    Sox expecting to open '18 with both Avi and Abreu

    QUOTE (greg775 @ Jan 29, 2018 -> 01:00 PM) I'm sure "many" will be discussing flipping he and Abreu at the deadline all season which is always annoying. agreed.

    White Sox have shown interest in Machado

    i think it's safe to say, and we should all agree, that the White Sox should just move on. the Orioles are asking WAY too much and we shouldn't give up anyone for a 1 year rental. if the Sox were contending for a WS title next season and had a stacked farm system, maybe. but we all know that's not our present-day reality.

    White Sox have shown interest in Machado

    QUOTE (witesoxfan @ Dec 18, 2017 -> 10:41 AM) I think the Sox still have the best offer on the board but Angelos is insisting on the Sox including more, which the Sox are wisely not doing. Thus, the Orioles don't feel they're getting enough for him and no trade will be made. i hope this is very well the situation right now. there is NO reason at all the Sox need to get into a bidding war with anyone over Machado unless there's a long-term contract extension involved (which there isn't).

    Hector Rondon to Astros

    QUOTE (WBWSF @ Dec 15, 2017 -> 11:15 AM) Trading David Robertson was another stupid move by Hahn last summer. you're kidding right? the Sox received Rutherford and Clippard in that deal..
  18. OMG he JUST turned 22 years old everyone!!! give the kid some time to make his own adjustments at the MLB level. he's not even CLOSE to being in the "prime" years of his baseball career, so to say he's a "borderline all-star" is ridiculous at this point of his major league career.

    Q traded to Cubs/Jimenez, Cease ++ to Sox

    QUOTE (fathom @ Jul 13, 2017 -> 12:21 PM) KLaw thinks Eloy will be a star i'm sure Law's opinion will change now that Eloy is on the south side. i hate Law.

    Q traded to Cubs/Jimenez, Cease ++ to Sox

    QUOTE (daa84 @ Jul 13, 2017 -> 11:25 AM) so in addition to having a stacked farm system - also keep on mind how absolutely little money we have tied up beyond in 2018 and beyond if Hahn can move Robertson, Frazier, Melky and Abreu, the 2019 payroll is going to be peanuts at which time Hahn can go out and make a big splash in free agency. he has positioned this team nicely thus far. i'm excited about the future that's for sure.

    Q traded to Cubs/Jimenez, Cease ++ to Sox

    QUOTE (ChiSox59 @ Jul 13, 2017 -> 11:02 AM) Not really sure what Abreu accomplishes on this team at this point. is he worth keeping around so can he be a mentor to Moncada next year and Robert soon after?
