If Machado signs with us: genius.

If Machado doesn’t sign with us: corny.

Nah Jon Jay is an actual MLB caliber player. Adam Engel is not

People are saying Jay is better than Engel... last year Engel had 0.6 WAR, Jay had 0.8. "better".

Yeah... this is what we're going for...

Jay's age 34, this guy isn't going to do anything.

It's really not worth getting worked up about.

Jon Jay can get you manny, which is way more than anything Engel can offer you

The White Sox aren't doing anything next year either.  This is another salvo for Manny.

This better be a Machado Caddie request.   I'd much rather take my lumps with either Cordell /Engel in another lost season if no Machado. 

Hell, go get Denard Span if we desperately need a 1 year stopgap.

I will say it. You don’t make this move unless you know Manny is signing.

Certainly seems like it. He's a very meh player. I can't image there's a market for him whatsoever.

To me it's wasted money and a wasted roster spot. There's significantly better options out there. I'm not critical point upset -- if we get Manny, I'll see how the roster plays out, but i'm worried that moves like this puts us out on other potential FA's.

Can we please let him get back to freaking out about John Jay?

And he’s going to be signed for 1 year for nothing. Relax bro. Release the dude in May if he sucks and we’re in same position we were in 30 mins ago.

If they sign him this ends the Harper talks in all likliehood and if they don’t land manny, wow just wow

Does it though?  Seems like he’s a 4th OF at this point and wouldn’t command much money.  I bet he would simply take Engel or Leury’s spot on the roster.

Who? Name the other potential FA’s this takes the Sox out of contention for...

Whom exactly, other than Pollock, is a better FA option that is a legit CF? We’ll wait for the list.

Pollock, maybe? But I don't think the Sox want him. And neither do I.

If Jon Jay helps 1% in getting Machado, Jon Jay can take Engel’s House if he wants. 

It’s shocking, but of course not shocking that people are getting upset over this.

WSD posted a blog about the signing but unfortunately there was no juicy info in it; all he said was all that's left is Hahn handing Machado a blank check.
