Has not Hanh proven to have sources? Or are we really bored and clinging to anything?

No.

Think best thing right now is to really hope Phillies get Harper in the next few days.  If they meet with him and feel like he’s not coming there, I hate our chances for Manny.

Why do you hate Sox chances with Manny?

In that scenario, who do you think gets Harper?

Bucket hasn't said anything today but what he said a few days back about the sox likely getting this done. RaBBit yesterday said that he'd be surprised if it didn't happen by Wednesday. I'm going with those guys over notHahn

The next few days are really going to suck!

Ive been pretty positive about Manny, but last week I said a few times that the deal needed to get done by Friday. Now there is obviously still a chance that the Sox sign Manny, and they have much better odds than id have thought a year ago, but I feel like deals have "momentum". And you need to get the deal done while it has positive momentum. 

It just seems like the Sox could have Manny if they really want him. And for whatever reason they are just holding out on giving into what he wants.

If Manny goes to Phili, I like our chances to get Harper better than all three of those teams.

I just refuse to believe these negotiations have been some sort of up and down like the "sources" claim. That's not how they work. It's a slow burn. It's not "today, he's coming. Tomorrow, he's not."

Bingo. These two have established track records. 

 

No offense to NotHahn but I’m not going to allow something he has heard to cause some heartache

Can’t imagine what the bad news would possibly be. The Phillies aren’t going to bowl him over the day they’re meeting with Harper.

Like to hear what he has to say. NotHahn, what do you hear?

In general though when there’s momentum building and then just kinda stops typically there’s a snag. Doesn’t mean it’s over, but I’m not surprised to hear there isn’t rosy news.

I think he's still driving. It will probably be a bit before we get any deets.

So much for the two whales theory.

Just kidding.

But I think any reasonable White Sox fan would be happy with just one.

Of course, since it’s like noon in Las Vegas, not sure how anyone would know much about the Boras/Harper meeting with the Phils.

Yep. If they were "close" this thing would be done. You dont add Yonder/Jay, and then miss out on Manny over $10 mil total on a contract.

At least on the football side of things, that not how any of this works.

 

There is either progress or no news. Especially if a team is as deep as the Sox, it doesn’t just magically become bad news the next day. 

 

Maybe the Phillies upped an offer but at this point, that’s all part of the negotiations. The Sox will have to counter.

NotHahn's response was extremely vague. Maybe the birthday cake just didn't taste good. 🤷‍♂️

Gave him the runs probably.

But what momentum was actually building?  I think we’re all confusing the addition of Jay and some random tweets from insiders to suggest things were actually moving when in reality I don’t think that’s probably not the case.  To me, it really seems like it’s been the same stand-still for weeks, except now the Yankees are out and we’ved added another one of Manny’s friends.  Those are good things, but not indicative of any momentum.  Nothing really going to change in that respect until one side finally blinks.
