Manny: Nope, still no news

Dodgers traded for Russell Martin, who is owed $20 mill this season.  Dont what they moved or what the Jays are going to pay down on that contract, but has to have some effect on the Haprer/Dodgers talk.

This puzzles me. I thought they were just praised for dumping large contracts of old people and now they do this? If they arent getting money on this deal then they are out on Harper too.

Agreed.  Boras is using the Nats to drive up the price on the Phillies, and the Nats are happy to oblige to make Harper as expensive as possible for their division rivals.

It's beginning to look a lot like Harper must learn to like Philadelphia, which is where Nightengale pegged him all along. That leaves the White Sox with Machado.  

 

Just sign already and end this madness.

 I wouldn't call Robert and Dunning a fair price.
Like I said, I'd pay a fair price if the Sox still need a 3B.
Or another young 3B top  3B prospect.   Beats signing moustakas.

What's a fair price then?

Robert & Dunning would be a HUGE overpay for a guy who most likely ends up at 1st. He was one of the worst 3bs in baseball last year.

They probably aren't paying anything close to $20 million.

I heard whenever Royce Clayton's name is mentioned on Soxtalk, Gage's penis gets smaller.

I like Andjuar and all, but I am not paying the price to acquire him when you can just sign Manny Machado for money.  It'd be stupid.

I would, however, do something like Abreu, Rutherford and Lambert for Andjuar and play him at 1B (and sign Manny).  But I HIGHLY doubt the Yankees would do that.

Harper back to the Nationals makes sense, but the Nationals are now over $200 million in payroll BEFORE potentially signing Harper. Signing him would easily push them into the luxury tax, and leave them with zero flexibility moving forward.

exactly, they'll be taxed on the front end and on their percentage of revenue sharing pool allotment.

I think that the Nats would also be 3rd time tax offenders, so the penalty would be even more stiff should they go over. But, I still think its possible.

I read the other day they would be hit with a 50% tax, so a 35 million AAV contract turns into a $52.5 million cost.

I mentioned that I thought was fair - Abreu and a 2nd tier prospect.
Andujar was not an elite prospect (50ish); he had a good year - kind of Palka with an extra 30 OBP points.  He played his position poorly.  The Sox would take the risk that he can never play 3B.

If the Sox sign Machado, which one would think is no worse than 50/50 at this point, and if he stays at 3B, then it's moot.
