Why would you stick around for 10 hours if it were bad and you were Manny Machado?

Nobody would.  Just get up and leave.

I mean the dude is looking at something in the area code of $300 million.  If it was bad, he'd just say thanks, but peace out bro.

I doubt it was a 10 hour meeting, and if it was, I'm sure he was aware of the length coming in. 

But you aren't going to walk out. This may be the team offering you $300 million. Would you actually leave?

Because we all know how long of a flight to NYC that would make for.

In all honesty, being that it was the middle meeting I don't see how it being so short could be a good thing.  If it was the last one, I could see him just being blown away and not needing to hang around anymore but considering he's still meeting with the Phillies I just don't see that being the case.

Two questions I would love to hear answered:

- was JR at the meeting

- did the Sox meet with him on Tuesday?

Ding ding ding

I’m betting they left Gibson’s at 11:30 and that’s where the ten hour mark came from

I have seen no confirmation about the length of the Sox meeting.

You'd have to think that JR was there for at least part of the meeting.

Because no one else wants to pay him an assload of money?

And walk away from a potential record breaking offer? 

Manny Machado is on his best behavior right now.

If he was in a situation where he would be signing up for a team that he had no interest in being with because of a horrible impression being made?  Leave the $10/20/30 million on the table and walk away.  In a situation like that, the player absolutely would walk away.

Maybe not what the White Sox are willing to pay. You would not walk away unless you are an imbecile. That kind of stuff gets around. Manny's other offers would more than likely only go lower.
