    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Not to bring up old stuff but I think it's finally safe to say the Sox were leaking 7/175. As dumb as it sounds.
  2. I think the more we hear the more JR and his motives become crystal clear. He is here for one reason and one reason only: To be a gatekeeper and depress player salaries. He wanted Machado on his terms and now they are literally telling Philly "we are out, don't raise your bid". He's doing this at a time where players are being vocal and taking a stand against ownership and the CBA. We will never sign a big FA again if this is right.
  3. The Phillies front office is obviously much better than ours but I have a feeling they lose out on Harper. Not to the Sox but someone that will make us all say "The Sox should have done that!"
  4. And that would be amazing and I guarantee you the fans would quickly forget about Machado whether it was bs or not
  5. Awesome point. Not once but reportedly twice.
  6. I just have a feeling that once the off season is finished we find out that the Sox valued Harper more from the start. Just a suspicion. There was a point a couple of months ago when I thought Harper was the guy. They met twice. The leaked UC photos.

    No lol but if everything goes wrong for them and the Sox pull a miracle.
  8. So I guess Rosenthal said on MLBN that if Harper is "priced above Philly's valuation of him" they will walk away. Could be posturing but if they get cute like the Sox did, maybe we can pull a Padres.

    The thing that sucks is even if the White Sox go on a miracle run and take a weak central, anything short of a World Series is going to have people saying "If we would have had Machado.."
  10. The Sox really messed up. They may have saved Cleveland from having to trade Kluber. They missed on Machado. They need to sign Harper, so of course they wont.
  11. The Sox have more to lose in my opinion. I have no faith that they will make this right but at least Philly has had a phenomenal off season. Segura, Realmuto, Cutch, and locking up Nola makes it a good off season. They can always say they spread their money around. The Sox on the other hand are arguably worse than last year.

    On the bright side, we did learn that many of our members have sources.
  13. Bob “Patrick Corbin will be a yankee” and “Machado will be a White Sox” Nightengale doesn’t know anything.
  14. Come on front office! You have the chance to Fix this! Prove to us you can learn from mistakes and get Harper done the right way!
  15. If Rabbit is to be believed; they need to shift and just throw crazy money at Harper.
  16. Offer Harper 8/280 with swellopts that can make it as much as 10/360. 35 mil a year might be appealing to him and he seems like the type of guy who would thrive in Chicago and bet on himself.

    Goodbye Soxtalk

    I really enjoy your posts and your presence here but come on brother, moving to Nashville over a baseball team? Maybe it is better you take some time away from soxtalk. You take baseball very seriously.
  18. I wonder if it’s less about the biggest offer for Harper and more about location and market?
