Machado signs with Padres 10/300

But why would the Sox refute it and refute it so strongly? Even if Manny goes somewhere else, you would think the Sox look better if the public believes they put out a respectable offer. If they miss and the world thinks they offered 7 years 200, they look like idiots.

They want to refute it strongly because if a team does try and beat their offer, the Sox would rather have a team push up against a 7/200 offer rather than an 8/250. 

When that call from Lozano comes and says "X team went past your offer, will you beat theirs?" you dont want their offer to be artificially inflated from the start.  It just makes more ground for you to have to cover to get back to being the top offer

But claiming 7/200 to me would cause more problems. More teams to get involved and a bad taste in fan's mouths when they miss.

Definitely agree with you

If they strike out on this with the way they're going about it, there will be such a fanbase revolt thats going to make Disco Demolition look like childsplay.

So the Sox pawns in the media are pushing back against national reports of a high offer so that we drive opposing offers up from the lower starting point instead of a higher one, which is beneficial for us, and that's bad because it's insulting to fans? GMAB.
