I hate the new thread title, I just glanced at the front page and saw 7/250 and it blended together with 'pending physica'l from the Jon Jay thread. It almost gave me a heart attack.

 

See you in court, soxtalk mods.

You unwittingly signed the medical waiver when you registered

For me you go after Harper too. It’s not my money so it’s easy to say. $270MM is less than most thought it would take anyway.

Sox would still be in on Harper, although I feel we are much more of a longshot to sign him than Machado.

My gut says Harper ends up back with the Nationals

How would he know if the White Sox were the high offer? 

What kind of negotiator would Machado's agent be if he told teams, well, right now you have the high bid?

Jim Duquette saying on high heat if white sox don't go higher then 7 years on machado or harper  they won't get neither one.

I would be so impressed if sox got this bid with anything 8/280 or less. That actually feels like a good contract, not even an overpay.

WSD is a pretty reliable source

When he tweets the eyeballs something is up


Just because he was reliable in the past doesnt mean he knows this information. The Machado negotiation is in a different stratosphere of anything he has broken. Furthermore, he now is doing this full time, so there is pressure to get an audience. After the "Machado is at the Bears game" stunt, I just dont have any reason to trust him or the people on his podcast. Seeing as most people know that JR doesnt have a Bears suite.

I could be very wrong, but I just cant imagine that someone actually gave him the exact contract figure. Its also hard to believe that the Sox absolutely know they are the top offer.

They dont, the guy is just making it up.

I said 8/275 yesterday, so I think 8/280 range is definitely possible.

Chris Russo and the guy he's interviewing completely shitted on the Sox and said they won't get Harper or Machado.

I will call russo the day we sign manny and shit on him.

To not have those two last years even with it more expensive upfront is such an advantage.

Sure, but Harper is already up over $300 million from his old team if you believe the latest reports.  We are probably talking $350 to $400 million to get him away from Washington.

Without Harper, sure.  But I don't see them committing somewhere between $600 and $700 million to two players.

Are the Nats blowing past the luxury cap if they give Harper $30 mil+?

Theres an argument both ways.

Is 10/300 really that much worse than 8/275?

Technically you could argue that the last 2 years is a 2/25 so thats not really bad. Id basically give him the option, because either would be fine if I was the Sox.

No one has any idea what the Nats current offer to Harper is except Harper and his people and the Nats, and if there is some collusion going on, other MLB owners. No one knows where the Sox stand in their bid except Machado and his agent, and whoever he gives the information. 

There is so much BS out there, with a dash of truth. We won't know what is what until it's over.

If harper goes back to Nats that's ok as long as we get manny. If harper don't go to cubs or phillies I be ok with not getting harper.
