God that article says they came to us with a 280 offer and Sox said “here’s 250” 😂 

But the sox offered a trillion in unreachable incentives.

I would love for this to be true but we've heard the Sox won't go to 300 mil guaranteed and they haven't spoken to Harper in months. It might be that he told teams "I'm waiting for Machado" but at this point with this epic failure fresh in mind I seriously doubt it. If Harper doesn't want the Phillies he might take that short term deal for a year or two and try again when more big markets free up money.

Anyway, Especially WRT Harper=> No opt out, no chance. If it is true they don't believe in opt outs, then they weren't serious about either player.

Bob  “Patrick Corbin will be a yankee” and “Machado will be a White Sox” Nightengale doesn’t know anything.

I put "Harper doesn't want the Phillies" in the same category as "Machado doesn't like the west coast".

heh. Sounds like Clown logic. 

I wish I could take the Bowman Clown face  tshirt that Barstool Chief makes and replace Bowman with Hahn. Bowman doesn't deserve it, Hahn absolutely does.

Not to mention Machado's camp ignored the the Sox  scientific presentation of how San Diego will be in the sea in 5 years.

This, of course, would require the mathletes in the Sox FO to realize that guaranteed money trumps imaginary money with unicorns, promises, and magic.

Why would you want to have to do nothing to earn $50 more million guaranteed when you could just stay completely healthy at age 34, get your 550 at bats, and then bank a cool $70 million?

Harper being on the cover of MLB the Show alone puts free advertising for your team...how many new young fans can you get with just that alone???

Comedy aside, the same people who think that the 70 million dollars behind door number 2 trump door number one are the same people who on game shows go for the million dollar 1% grand prize risking the 100k they just won.

If Rabbit is to be believed; they need to shift and just throw crazy money at Harper.

That's the thing with this tweet by rabbt. If he believed they were willing to pony up for both, even if it was at their reduced price it would have been a minimum of 500 million. If they were willing to do that, why wouldn't they be willing to pony up 350mm for harper? It's hard to believe after today, but maybe the plan all along was to try and get both and if one doesn't bite on the smaller deal go all in on the other?

Not trying to rain on your parade but what about any of their comments today make you optimistic about Harper. KW literally said they couldn't go to 300 mil. They're not going there for Bryce.

Couldn't go 300 on Machado.  He never said that about Harper.  Again, I'll keep saying this.  Harper was their bigger target.  They knew full well that it would cost MINIMUM 10/300 for him at the start before they ever met with him.  Now, if it comes out that they had framework in place to sign both, then that means they were well prepared to go over 300 million for Harper.  Unless he signs for 350, or something crazy, the Sox have to be right there, especially now after losing out on Machado.  Unless they have lied right to our faces.  If Harper signs for 320 or so and it comes out that the Sox only wanted to offer 280, sell the fucking team JR and fire every goof in the front office that doesn't have a clue to do their fucking jobs.

That said, I'm pretty sure something is cooking right now and it should be ready to take out of the oven soon.

And with this reported offer by the White Sox the Miami Marlins sign Bryce Harper to a 10 year $326 million contract. The Marlins use the money they got back in the Stanton deal to give it to Harper. Physical still pending, of course.
