    Update: Machado met with Sox

    Anyone else watch that video and notice Machado totally ignore Rick Renteria on their way into the ballpark?

    Update: Machado met with Sox

    I think we're going to end up offering Machado the biggest contract between us, the Yankees and Phillies. But I think he'll ultimately choose the Yankees because the gap between the Sox and Yankees offer wont be enough to turn down joining that already powerful offense.

    I could see that happening. And I dont think the Yankees or Phillies would make that offer.

    Top 5 Favorite White Sox of All-Time

    I'm sure there have been threads like this before, but I thought it would be fun to break away from the FA conversation for a little bit. Here's mine: 1. Paul Konerko 2. Magglio Ordonez 3. Mark Buehrle 4. Frank Thomas 5. Jose Abreu Honorable Mentions: Scott Podsednik, Jon Garland, Jermaine Dye, A.J. Pierzynski, Joe Crede, and Jim Thome.

    This seems to be our chance to really blow him away with an offer that I dont know if the Yankees make.

    Harper part 3

    Starting to get the feeling, as some in the media have mentioned, that the offers for Harper are just not what they were expecting at all. I believe that Boras was thinking that the top offers would be in the 10-year, $400 million to 12-year, $424 Million, and that is simply just not happening. There seems to be so few teams in the running, that I dont think they feel like they need to bid against themselves. If I had to guess, I would say that the best offer as of right now is probably 10-year, $300 million to 10-year, $325 million.
  7. Maybe no one has spoken against the rumor because it’s not coming from a remotely credible source.
  8. But lets say the White Sox and Phillies offer the same amount. People are acting like signing with the Sox would ruin his career while signing with Philly is a great move.
  9. What I find interesting, why is the idea of Harper going to the White Sox so crazy but Harper going to the Phillies is normal?
  10. When you’re potentially going to give a guy $40 million a year, I’m sure you ask any and every question you can think of haha.

    Rosenthal: Could Harper be headed to the southside

    Here is something that I have been thinking a lot about lately. Serious question: Assuming the offers are the same, why would Harper choose the Phillies over the White Sox? Trying to take my bias out, it seems like signing with the Sox would be a no-brainer. Same money, easier division to compete in, better hitters ballpark, and mire up and coming players. What am I missing?

    Doing a random contest...

    Hey everyone, I wanted to do a random contest to connect with some White Sox fans! I recently picked up the hobby of collecting autographs from players through the mail. I have two autographed photos from Daniel Palka, and I would like to give one away! So let’s do this: If Bryce Harper signs with the White Sox, guess the years and amount of money (example 10-year, $350 million). Send me a DM with an answer!

    Getting my hopes up again, but everything Boras said was encouraging.
