Philly really should sign Kimbrel though if they are up on this stupid money thing.

There's our nonsense tweet to analyze thoroughly and cause responses from other members of the media. Hooray!

Ironic that one of the largest offers ever made is being critiqued.

If Phillies sign Harper, Kimbrel would they even pass the Nats/Braves as the second best team in that division? i have my doubts.

Depends on their pitching staying healthy, I could see it being close. I could see a bunch of braves falling slightly back from last year. Tough division though.

The general consensus - as far as I can tell - is that if the Phillies fail to land Harper, the Nationals will is that Washington is the next most likely landing spot for Harper after the Phillies.

I wonder how much that plays into the Phillies preference (Harper vs. Machado) if signing both is not a realistic option.

these are either plants or Machado is very close to signing somewhere besides Philadelphia

Exactly this. They're either telling him to wrap it up or they know he's going to the white sox

Agreed, I'm more impressed at how tough that division will be come next season. Should be a great race.

I could see boras plants. He likes to deal with owners and stoke with their emotional desire to make big splashes. This plays with fan expectation.

OR

It's a real leak from excited owner or whatever to that group.

That leaves Machado for the Sox. Fine with me.

Machado, Pollack, and Gio Gonzalez

Not machado related but if I was phillies I would not be thrilled with paying late career arrietta and keuchel.

Keuchel at this point could be getting a 1 year deal for all we know though.

They can have Harper, Keuchel, and Kimbrel...  if we get Machado, Gray, and Pollock.
