Dont know... Manny seems annoyed as hell in that pic...

He probably took that photo with him one of these past seasons on one of Baltimore's many trips to the Bronx, not yesterday or anything.

So, it's starting out kind of boring today, as far as our whales are concerned. Sure would like a big White Sox surprise from either the Harper or Machado camp. Now, back to reality.

It‚Äôs Sunday I doubt any real news will be reported until tomorrow, i would enjoy the break while we have it ūüėā

Dan Clark appears to be back on Twitter.  Glad he lived up to his end of the bargain for like 48 hours.

In a perfect world: the Sox are finalizing a deal with Machado this weekend while the Phillies met with Harper and are waiting to announce it until tomorrow when this week's NFL games are over and the Sox will get the most attention/coverage on the signing as possible.

FWIW--I would say Tuesday or Wednesday. Tomorrow will still be NFL talk on Today's games and next week's match-ups.

Page 200 on the way!  I predict we'll sign another over the hill outfielder by page 215.

Come on Hahn, don't make me a fool, sign Granderson!

No, perfect world, Harper + Machado both go to the White Sox.

That's true, but at this point I'll be more than happy if they just get one. Ha.

I know he'll be 38 but he has been an above average hitter for the past 5 seasons. I actually wouldn't mind him on a cheap deal if we get Machado and need a competent right fielder

While I was kidding, I do agree.  Always felt he'd come home.

The whole take away for me on this whole thing is I think the Sox have a fair offer in table and neither guy likes it and both players are hoping somebody beats it.....nobody is currently but they are holding out hope somebody pops up to do so.

The Sox are being used but they also are not dropping the hammer to close the deal.

Personally the Macado buddy signings are what irritate me as neither player was needed but there they are.....lock machado up then get both....at this point i personally am of mind to say F Machado.

Eloy/Jay/Granderson would be the 2019 OF with Machado/Anderson/Moncada/Abreu in the infield. Alonso at DH, I don't care what happens to Engel or Palka

What do you mean F Machado?  Like you want to take a pass on him and if so why?

I’d rather go with Palka than Granderson if it were up to me.

   It's like when you're a non-blue-blood basketball program and you're recruiting a player rated in the 30-75 range and you hear how much they love your program how they're your school's #1 priority and yet the commit just never seems to come. After a while it's apparent that you're just their fallback plan and they're just biding their time hoping for one of the elite schools to come calling. In this case the Sox have relegated themselves to this status and now have to live with it. But, it sure does suck ...

How are the Sox being used? ¬†Both players (as well as most fans) expected the market to be more robust and both would get close to 300 million contracts. ¬†By all accounts our offer is no where near that. ¬†If it was he would probably sign. ¬†These guys are professionals and IMO money is what talks in everyone of these big time free agent signings not ‚Äúwhere they want to play‚ÄĚ. ¬†Of course many good arguments to support that neither of these two (especially Harper) are worth anywhere near what they think they are.

That's what I'd day if Palka could actually play the outfield.  Dude's a DH.

He probably is, but at least he can still get at-bats that way.  If he hits pretty well this year, he’s potentially a DH option in 2020.

I agree with this and think that there is some danger here. Seems like the Sox are content on playing risk/reward with Machado. I'd guess that they could get the deal done for sure by upping their offer to a respectable amount, but since no one is pushing them they might feel like they can get him more on their terms.

Playing really dangerous if that's the case.

As a Sox fan for all my life, I've seen how poor this organization has been ran and the amount of failure it has gone through. I was ready to switch teams or not follow baseball in 2015/2016 (whenever the rebuild began), but the front office made those moves that gave me hope.

Going into this off season I had no illusion that we would sign one of these premier players. However, the W'Sox continued the pressure and are now sitting 1-2 in Machado and are also one of the only 2 clear suitors for Harper.

The Phillies are the other team here so it becomes a two team show for these guys. We have to get one. If we don't get one it will be a colossal failure on the front office at this point. I will stop rooting for the White Sox and move on. 100%

Sounds like the Phillies prefer Machado, so this ‚Äúhope they sign Harper first‚ÄĚ plan won‚Äôt work for us. ¬†We‚Äôre going have to outbid or at least match the Phillies if we want Manny.
