Machado signs with Padres 10/300

Recommended Posts

If you want to be taken seriously you don't get outbid by the fucking Padres.

If the Padres get him, the White Sox can not spin this as some "glad to be at the final table" BS

Yep, if they lose out on both guys and one of them goes to Padres, there should be no excuses and the fan base should be absolutely livid.

Didn’t my man Crane just rule out the Padres yesterday?

I'm just adding information that's out there, but this article on mlb.com contains this quote:

There's belief that a Padres offer for Machado would likely top those of the other contenders.

 

https://www.mlb.com/padres/news/manny-machado-being-courted-by-padres/c-303972722

Belief from who? Jaysus. Enough of this stuff. Same has been said about the Sox and Phillies.

At this point, if there is a higher offer than any existing one given you'd have to think he just takes it and leaves everyone else in the dust for lowballing him. I think he's to the point where he's about to say FU to the other teams and not give them a chance to beat it.

Seriously this is not happening. The White Sox are not going to be outbid by the Padres. Especially when we have his brother in law and one of his best friends and they play on the West Coast.

I think that's about the worst approach he could have.

Anybody who loses sleep over the Padres is fooling themselves.

I don’t know why people are losing it over Twitter randoms with “sources”. You would think that the last three months of just that would make people learn not to freak out.

Padres fans are probably saying the same thing about the Sox, so this statement means nothing.

They’d be wrong, though

That mlb.com article isn't exactly random.  With that said, I do agree that the last 3 months should have taught us something.  I've shared tweets from all angles over the last few months for people to read and develop their own opinion.

Guys, I've said this before but manny isnt involves in negotiations. You hire agents for a reason. His agent gives him occasional updates but it's not like manny is sitting in a room with Lozano negotiating and getting angry. 

His agent handles this and will contact him when he is ready to have machado sign.

FYI, this guy was one of the first to mention the Padres being in on Machado.  Here are the contract figures he's heard:

 

If the Padres are offering opt outs after year 2&3 then they will be tough to beat even with a higher bid. I don't think the White Sox will want to offer an opt out prior to year 4 and I don't blame them.

The Sox are worth 300 million more than the Padres. They play in one of the three biggest TV markets in the country. They've had top 5 payrolls multiple times in the past 14 years - the Padres have never had a top 5 payroll - I dont even think a top 10 but could be wrong. 

They just arent the same.

It’s fascinating how your pessimism works.

Wanting very early opt-outs and the Sox not wanting to do so has always been an important obstacle that's been looming.

I really don’t get the panic about the fucking Padres, there is little doubt IMO Lozano is using the media to inflate their interest.

At this point I would be worried if the Yakult Swallows made an offer.

But why would the Padres want to give early opt-outs?  Doesn’t make sense for them either.

Because the sox have the best offer on the table and that is the one thing sox won't do is 2 year opt out. And they shouldn't.
