To clear up and confusion Kevin Millar did say today on intentional talk he thinks Harper to Phillies and Machado to the Whitesox

That or we've all been stuck in this thread for so long we're beginning to evolve.

You got me, great job. I already said about 1000 times I fell for so,e BS. But have fun stalking.

SouthSideSox should be the ones ashamed, they don’t even know how to spell Jeff Passan’s name correctly.  That’s pretty pitiful.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the emotional responses and rationalize (positively or negatively) every tweet, but one thing this process is doing is forcing everyone to thoroughly vet every source in terms of credibility.

Since he said something different yesterday, I take it he has no source to be trusted.

My thing was it appeared it was this guy’s livelihood. When it becomes your job and not some mess with people on the Internet, it isn’t crazy to assume he was using good information. Even WSD has scruples.

Well, at least the most famous product of my hometown is not Delray Brooks.  How’s that?

I am going to record as saying I am right there with you.  From the very first Dan Clark post, my belief fell into the idea that he had no reason to lie, and he had every reason to be accurate.

That one didn't end well.

Nice first post.  No quotes from The Art of the Deal.  The irony of all this would be Harper ending up with the White Sox as his ultimate best option...if the Phillies panic and feel forced to blow away the Machado camp.  Then we end up with this odd pairing of Bryce and Machado’s Mates.

I don't think the Phillies will panic.  I truly believe they are in the driving seat.  Pressure, sure, panic, no.  They have had a nice off-season , to this point and I believe they will get Harper or Machado.  When their owner says what he said, that's hard to walk back, especially in Philadelphia.

Phillies will be the team to overpay, but that's not them panicking.  They threw money at Thome and got him (and he really didn't want to go there).

Harper is the one I have always seen as a long shot for the Sox.  If you look at the history, Sox have wanted Machado and Boras has long been a rival of Mr. Reinsdorf's.

Same here, I figured orioles guy, regardless if he worked for MASN or not and wanting to be a sports writer etc, had no skin in the game to lie.

I really wonder if we'll ever seen bucket again since Dave brought attention to him in the blog post.

In the race to "scoop" people, lower tier bloggers are going to take risks to increase their credibility.

The idea that some random guy in Australia had that level of information was not really believable.

The same with WSD the other day.

They are taking readily available information and coming up with plausible guess. They then say "sauces" and if it doesnt pan out it really isnt a huge deal. 

Clark backed himself into a corner, and until today I think he thought it would pan out. The problem is that his scoop became too big.
