    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    This deal is going down in the next 24 hours. Last minute push by Lozano to raise the bidding.

    The Padres play about 9 road games in each LA and SF. 100 games a year in Cali. Having said that, this tax argument just proves how ridiculous this saga has become. I realize taxes are important to income but have we really reached the point where we are arguing about taxes. I hate this.

    We need a new thread title too. We've moved on from footwear to handwear.

    The Rawlings gloves are real people. That doesn't mean Rawlings knows he is signing with the Sox. But if you are Rawlings, that's a great post to generate a ton of clicks. Could simply be that Manny told them the design he wants for the season so they saw that as an opportunity for some clicks. EDIT: And if this is the case, it's likely that he is signing with the Sox. He designed them because he's going to be playing here. That doesn't necessarily means Rawlings knows.

    For one, agents and the MLBPA weren't publicly calling out reporters. Not to mention the growing amount of twitter people with "sources". Take the good with the bad on social media I guess, but the amount of BS out there is just so annoying.

    This whole thing turned into a circus about a month ago when Lozano made public comments. Now it's just a shit show. The combination of crumbling of the current CBA mixed with social media has made this just a disater of an offseason. But like Hahn said, when Manny is hitting HRs in July, the pain will likely be forgotten. Just tired of the BS.

    The security rumor guy was either reaching or lying. Hector Gomez has been saying stuff all winter and the language barrier clearly is an obstacle when deciphering his tone. The Alonso locker pic is nothing. How do we keep allowing ourselves to fall into these traps of something being imminent lol. Until passan or Rosenthal straight up say a deal is close, everything is BS!

    I'm pretty much at the point where rumors of sportsbooks taking props down, video games tweeting cryptic stuff, or Machado instagram posts are so far beyond the point of getting worked up about. Until Passan, Heyman, or Rosenthal tweet out that "Machado/Harper are nearing a deal....structure is expected to be X years blah blah" then I can't find the energy to care anymore. There's been too much BS going on for close to 3 months now.

    We are really overrating the importance of SoxFest in terms of MLB Free Agency.
  12. I misread your original post. I got you now

    So maybe Roeper was just alluding to the fact that he would be at SoxFest giving out his book. His "feeling" SoxFest would be special was more of a joke hinting he would be attending. Not that he knows Manny will be there.
