I think it's beneath you to be quoting NSync songs :)

Sure about that?

( I didn’t even pick up on the reference until you said this... what’s that say about you Ron? )

why the fuck would an agent leak something to the media instead of just picking up the damn phone and calling a GM? to get a counter offer and lay it all on the table? Like, do you guys have any idea how this shit works?  It's a small club.  Everybody is just a phone call away and nobody is playing tiddlywinks.  If an agent straight up lies to Hahn word is going to get around.  You don't bluff and bullshit like you're donald trump in this negotiations.

Because if the reports from NY are true, ownership is split. Machados agent needs something to change the dynamics.

Why would the Sox leak they are close? That would be the stupidest thing ever. The Sox want complete silence if they are close.

And why would Machado's agent be lying? They dont have a deal, hes trying to get his cliet more money.

(edit)

Only other option is its from thr NY camp who wants to sign him.

Ha well just knowing pop music you couldn't avoid that song but I did have to look it up. My first thought was  Justin Timberlake.

Meh.  If you guys think GMs and Owners and agents give contract offers and counter offers based on twitter rumors I got no response.  It's absurd on its face.

Now for trades?  Totally different.

Whats absurd is thinking the Sox are leaking information.

So either

a) all the writers are just making shit up

b) agents/players or their people are leaking

c) competition is leaking.

Pick whichever you want, but those are the options.

All this talk of leaking. If we sign Manny Machado and or Bryce Harper, all of our butts are gonna be leaking.

One reason an agent does this is to drive the fan bases to push their team to pony up more. Fear of losing season ticket holders for coming up short. Does it work? Probably not, but you can see the fury on this site when bad news gets leaked. 

Teams leak to do the opposite. They may also seek to drive down the market.

I doubt these strategies really work.

This leak though is strange to me because it doesn’t take four sources on one side to confirm the report. Particularly if the source is directly involved. It seems like both sides would have confirmed it.

It would be cool if there was a separate thread that only an mod/admin could post in, solely with tweets from credible types or posts from the buckets, Rocks, and raBBits of the world. Make the real emotion swinging rumors easy to find. Leave this open for the thoughts of the horde. Don’t want to put too much on the mods’ plates (I’d do it if properly deputized). Just FWIW.

If we get Manny, how long does it take the Mods to get his face on the banner?

Don't admit to knowing NSync even if you do.

Never. That banner extracts a heavy toll from players who adorn it.

Delmonico can go there.

The big problem is defining what credibility even is in 2019.  Most of the replies are debating the value of the information and not what the information actually means.

That would just be a Ken Rosenthal/Jeff Passan thread.
