I’m not sure how well those talking points will go over at SoxFest if they end up getting shut out.

Sounds like they know certain people are leaking certain things...

I still believe this all hinges on the Phillies getting Harper. I think Harper has always been a pipe dream. 

Machado is very realistic. But if the Phillies miss on Harper, it’s all but guaranteed in my eyes that they will drop a monster offer to Machado’s camp. One that he cannot refuse.

With all due respect, I don't think anyone knows jack crap with what's REALLY going on. 

Can you imagine if we had Twitter back when we signed Albert Belle? 

Patience, grasshoppers.

But the White Sox benefit from the leaks. I don’t have access to the stats, but I would venture to guess this site already has more activity this January than the entire January last year. 

Nothing leaks, what is left to discuss....the Sox signed a minor league pitcher who used to be pretty good but he hasn’t pitched in 3 years because of all sorts of surgeries?

And whether they want to admit it or not, the White Sox purposely leak things from time to time.

No one is making you read it, but let’s face it the suspense can’t get you away from it so you will continue to do so until one is signed, just like everyone else here is doing 🙂

Oh I meant for the front office haha, for me this is my life

I’ll tell you this White Sox drafting would have been way better if they just let soxtalk pick first three rounds.

Excluding the last pick that cannot be evaluated yet - since 2013 I don't think it could possibly have been worse.

This place has been something lately.

1.) To the comments about me - I haven't seen any of this just been told of it. Nowhere did I say a specific date Machado would sign or that he would at all. No one can provide proof otherwise because it simply did not happen. If you look at the replies of the tweet in question, I specifically say "not necessarily tomorrow" (Tweet was from Tuesday). I have said I've liked the Sox chances in a bunch of different ways the last 10 days or so. That was when it first went around the Yankees were basically bowing out. 

2.) To the the new poster with a negative source. Regardless of what he said, someone posting on the board for the very first time and the whole board collectively freaks out?  

Past that, 2 things on it:

a.) I don't know who the guy's source is but I wouldn't suspect the tiny subset of people in the know with the Sox are getting emotional, blabbing about fluid contract negotiations at weekend gatherings. That goes against just about everything the White Sox are about.

b.) The source is said to have referred to the negotiations "everything moves so quickly" or something to that effect. And to be clear, I have just seen his main post so I do't know if he elaborated on timing. That goes against just about everything everyone else is hearing. "Waiting game" "it's going to be a while" "Far from over". Maybe this source is right, but they're really bucking the trend speaking to the negotiations. 

I see no reason to freak out here. We haven't had any notable news today. Enjoy the day off of this stuff.

I was basically saying the same thing, and I don't think anyone said it was gonna happen a certain day because of you, we just mentioned the timeline you *think* is appropriate

To say people working for the Sox have been negative about this is crazy. Unless you're speaking to the FO in the last few hours specifically. That's just wrong. There has been optimism from the team publicly and privately. People in baseball ops and people not in baseball ops. People speaking directly and indirectly.

If the Yankees are truly out and not pulling an incredible media ruse laying in the weeds, the Sox chances are very good. If it's between the Sox and Phillies and contracts are relatively the same, the Sox get him. If the Phillies get crazy and offer 300+, then you worry. The concern should be the Phillies go crazy. Until you hear about the Yankees being back in don't freak out. Lozano is acting like this is in the last stage, we'll see if he holds through.
