Dammit, I already took the tag off of mine.

Can you get pitchforks into SoxFest or do you have to check them with your coat?

I feel like you will only get behind any trade if the value you send away is significantly lower than the value that you receive, and that is negotiating in bad faith and will probably put you in a bad spot with other gms 

While I don't disagree with you in principle, I hardly think that the results of trades over the last 6 years put the Sox at risk of negotiating in bad faith with other teams.

raBBit said Wednesday. If it doesn't happen by then, maybe it's time to worry. But until that happens, then I refuse to be upset over this non news

He also said the same thing a week ago and then wednesday passed with nothing.

This whole thing about waiting until Wednesday seems completely arbitrary though...more of an in-joke about how many big Sox moves have gone down on that day in recent years.

That said, it will fit the one week timeline of the Gomez news.

I really don't think rabbit would say Wednesday arbitrarily

I don't believe he ever said anything about this coming Wednesday. Four days ago (Tuesday), he tweeted that the White Sox used to always make their big moves on Wednesdays. I don't think he had any inside information that something would happen with Manny/Harper on Wednesday.

Or are you referring to something else he said?

Rabbit has never actually put a timeline on it. Like you said, he said things usually happen on Wednesday but at no point did he ever say "the White Sox will sign Manny Machado on Wednesday."

I've never had any issues bringing one. I haven't been in a long time though. Can someone else confirm this?

What are the odds he could possibly know ahead of time what will happen with Harper, when they could get Machado in for a physical...and signing press conference, it’s not the type of thing anyone but Reinsdorf, the front office and shareholders will know until the final hours if everything comes together quickly.

He said would be surprised if they didn’t sign him by next Wednesday.

Zero reason to be concerned right now.

He doesn't know the exact day. That's why he put a timeline on it. Because he feels it's that close

Must have missed that yesterday then. I do think that Machado will sign somewhere next week. I think Harper will follow in the week or two after.

Maybe NotHahn’s bad news is only in regards to Harper. 

I could see that being the case given how much he has hinted at us and Harper this week.
