This thread is so bi-polar. I love it. It's given me weeks of entertainment. What will I do with my time when the Manny saga has reached it's stunning conclusion?

That’s when the Harper thread starts

There has been so much smoke around the White Sox and Machado over the last 24 hours, you would think that if the Phillies or a mystery team had any inclination to top the Sox offer that they would be doing it very soon.  Otherwise, it does seem like this is the end game.

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.

Petition for the new thread ending to be "May or may not be heavily leaning" 

He said in the present tense that he's heavily leaning towards us and that's the most I care about than the rest of the tweet

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.

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.

Imagine in 200 years when our distant relatives find the relics of this thread. It will be studied for years as the fall of mankind's ability to reason.

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!

The amount of pages in this thread is the amount of money Machado will sign for. Keep driving the price up, Soxtalk.

$1 million per page. We're at 270 right now. 30 more pages or so and we should be good to go.

@Y2Jimmy0 You nailed it here.

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.
