Yes!  I see that thread way more insane and comical.  Just think if the Sox don't get Manny, that thread will be nuts.

If the Sox get Manny, people are going to be dreaming of something very amazing, but not very likely.

We’ll be playing with house money at that point. It’ll be a crazy thread, but much less stressful.

I predict that a "Manny signing elsewhere" thread will be the genesis for multiple prison sentences.

Even reading this is already making me mad.

And thus concludes the most annoying day since yesterday.

Just wait until Passan tweets out "The White Sox and Machado has agreed in principle to an 8 year deal" and then Nightengale fires back with "No deal has been reached yet". We will all lose our shit.

Duarte playing both sides of the scoop & Heyman confirming bad (for us) Sox reports. This day has gone much different than I thought it would. 

Why do you see it as a bad thing that Heyman is also confirming the 7 year thing? If no one is beating that offer then who cares? If they do top it then it sounds like the Sox are prepared to up their offer.

After the Dan Clark fallout, all “insiders” have learned to break news AND cover their bases. Bravo.

"Deal could be announced this week or could still fall through". That's going out on a limb!

Chiefs go to their first AFC title game in KCs home history the same time White Sox getting Machado. Told y’all it’s happening. Stars aligning for a great year

The thing is, if it succeeds,  none of this matters.  If it fails, it will be held onto for decades.

I agree with the success part.  If it fails, Mr. Reinsdorf doesn't have decades.  This will be attached to him for the remainder of his ownership.  It is a stigma that will be with the Sox until a new owner comes in.

These two things are mutually exclusive.

They are 100% linked. If the Sox don't sign a whales, the details will mean nothing.  There will be meltdowns galore.

I wonder if the FO will think it was better if they hadn't even tried to acquire one of the best 0layeds in baseball.

If the Sox are unable to sign one of Machado/Harper, does soxtalk have enough bandwidth available to handle the increased load of ranting posts?

Maybe, as they polish their big trophy they made for themselves labeled “hardest tryers”, they will think “was it worth it? Could we have used the money we spent on our try hard trophy to actually sign the player? No. It is the fans who are wrong”
