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. 

I kind of like the ideas that it was Lozano or Boras, but anyone that doesn't think Lozano was calling out the Sox here is in denial.

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.

Is this why I just saw Alonso and Jay get DFA'd?

Everyone calm down, there is no way that statement was a shot at the White Sox. It does not read that way at all, and there is no way the 7 years 175 million leak came from the Sox as it is not beneficial to the White Sox in any way.

 

Looking at national boards like r/baseball not a single person there is claiming or thinks it a shot at Sox either.

Bruce should just stop tweeting about this.  Maybe he can speculate Harper to the Cubs for a while.

I usually defend Bruce a bit, but he seems to think the more money deferred, the higher the present day market value.

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 because WSD gave props to a poster in here for having sources

Maybe the  Russians

I still ask my self who has to benefit from the initial Onley report of 175 million and to me it seems like Machado’s camp would benefit the most. It would be a good way to get teams to check in and drive interest. I think his agent is just trying to cover his ass a little. Who knows at this point though.

I have this concern too. While I totally believe sox knocked down the years of deal thing yesterday, I don't think sox ever want exact terms of what they are working on leaked. But it could definitely be seen that way.

Then why post stuff like you do?

Not trying to be a jerk. I just don't understand what you're trying to accomplish.

Maybe the White Sox can get Pitbull to throw out the first pitch and sing the national anthem on opening day.

I bet Manny announces via the Players Tribune

Make the announcement through deadspin since they love the idea of Manny and the Sox so much.
