Machado signs with Padres 10/300

I’m guessing this is related to Joc and that Hahn agreed to a trade for him that is dependent on the Dodgers landing Realmuto without giving up Verdugo.

I think this is a very accurate guess. Probably something agreed to in principle pending an additional move.

I think it has been made clear that the sources in the Sox organization of multiple people were very confident a move was about to happen, probably a Joc trade, and were surprised when it fell through at the last moment. Dave has gotten in trouble for scooping a potential trade too early before (which almost blew it up), so if the deal is still being discussed on different terms, I am guessing his source is asking him not to say what the deal is until it is renegotiated or fully falls through.

Said so by who, these same "insiders"?

Or it could be dependent on the Sox signing Manny, I guess. But in general I think what you're saying makes a lot of sense

Could be that too, but I lean the other way just because Dave & others seemed to think something was close at the time and IMO a Realmuto trade seems more likely to fit that billing than a Machado signing.

There was some good news...all the White Sox better minor league prospects didn’t get injured playing “tag” in the Dominican Republic, and they can market outreach/donations to that country in their Machado follow-up.

I can just imagine if Cease would have slipped there and blown out his ACL on the playground while being chased by all those kids.  Madrigal would have been less popular than Alonso/Jay.

And at least it looks warm there!

C’mon Caulfield! :glare:

She follows the marvel universe obviously, unless she is just really into Norse mythology.

Both of us love the Norse mythology but she is really into the marvel universe. I have her to thank for getting me into the marvel movies because I had not seen any until she took me to see Thor.

The Yankees are still supposedly involved...simply because many writers are choosing to believe the 7/175 offer over something like 8/240-260.  At least some writers are invested in keeping their name involved, is a better way of putting it.   

The Padres and Lozano have nothing to lose going to Miami...that’s for sure.

Even though Morosi noted Machado himself hasn't met with San Diego officials, Acee cited "multiple sources aware of talks between the sides" in his report. 

Per The Athletic's Dennis Lin, the Padres have "expressed interest" in a face-to-face meeting with Machado that could potentially take place in Miami.

If you don't want to believe them, don't, but lets not restart this.

or not landing him..... bc then they would still have verdugo and a crowded OF.

 

IMO the best chance we have at landing Joc is if the Reds beat out the Dodgers and land Realmuto. I cant see the Dodgers getting him and not giving up Verdugo which would then make Joc useful to them.

On Groundhog Day, if Manny sees his shadow, he won't sign for another six weeks.

There OF isn't too crowded. If they didn't deal Verdugo or Pederson, it would be: Pederson/Hernandez platoon in LF, Pollock CF, Verdugo RF. Toles isn't much of an MLB player, Taylor is likely the starting 2B, and I think most would expect Muncy to regress really hard next year so he's likely mostly a bench bat as well (meaning Bellinger is at 1B). They could deal one of Joc and Verdugo and I guess it would get Muncy in the lineup somewhere every day, but like I said, it depends on what they expect from him. And knowing Pollock's injury history, keeping everyone could be an option.

At this point I'm just hoping to wake up tomorrow and "I got you babe" isn't playing on the alarm clock.
