Machado signs with Padres 10/300

Recommended Posts

1. Bruce Levine makes 0 sense. It was great to see Jon Heyman directly respond lol.

2. The statement by Lozano was definitely a shot at an MLB team. The mention of the CBA and explicitly asking that negotiations through the media stop can only be directed at an MLB team.

3. Idk why the Sox would want that ridiculous offer out there but I do know that when the 8/250 offer was brought up, all of Chicago’s reporters including Merkin came out of the wood work to shoot it down.

The far east side. There's a subdivision of town houses on rte 19 across from the Chevy dealer.

Off of Shales/19 right? Order Uber eats sometime, I drive out here. I've made deliveries in there.

Bruce has always been bad but the last few weeks have been something else. The Sox need to stop giving him stuff.

I dont ever remember seeing anything like this! I'm 49 and have been through many baseball offseasons and really don't recall an agent calling out the press like this! Am I wrong?

This is completely unprecedented territory and everything I thought I knew about free agency and baseball negotiations is being questioned today.

Right, this is one part of it though. it is quite obvious the 7 years thing came from the white sox front office as every single chicago sports writer and national writer wrote it.

I'm exhausted. Enough. I need a minor break from this bullshit. I can't take it anymore. See you all Friday.

When baseball contract negotiations become professional wrestling.  Good times.

Machado's going to go on TV and rip up the Sox contract offer and throw it in the garbage in front of Yankee Stadium.

Hearing deal is not close at all. All teams in on manny upset with the media. Talks have stalled

Is this the 5th account in a week's span that is now claiming to have sources, while just joining the board? Why is this becoming such a trend.

Probably lurkers who see how popular guys who have had sources become and then use this situation to act like they do

That's quite the statement.

Man, i have zero clue who leaked the terms.

Clearly mentioning a bid that low would do nothing for Machado’s camp .So if they didn’t leak it, who did?

The one thing I would worry about is if they suspect the Sox are leaking this to try to suppress higher bids, if  ultimately the bids are similar, they may hold this against the team. But it could be anyone leaking.

would love to hear from @raBBit and others with actual sources about how the White Sox front office is perceiving this. this situation is so fucked up.

Well they should probably just stop. Not a great way to "gain respect" on the board, IMO.

Please stop.  This is beyond amateur hour “insider” trolling.
