The general consensus - as far as I can tell - is that if the Phillies fail to land Harper, the Nationals will is that Washington is the next most likely landing spot for Harper after the Phillies.

I wonder how much that plays into the Phillies preference (Harper vs. Machado) if signing both is not a realistic option.

Exactly this. They're either telling him to wrap it up or they know he's going to the white sox

Depends on their pitching staying healthy, I could see it being close. I could see a bunch of braves falling slightly back from last year. Tough division though.

Agreed, I'm more impressed at how tough that division will be come next season. Should be a great race.

I could see boras plants. He likes to deal with owners and stoke with their emotional desire to make big splashes. This plays with fan expectation.

OR

It's a real leak from excited owner or whatever to that group.

That leaves Machado for the Sox. Fine with me.

Machado, Pollack, and Gio Gonzalez

Not machado related but if I was phillies I would not be thrilled with paying late career arrietta and keuchel.

Keuchel at this point could be getting a 1 year deal for all we know though.

I think Bob and Jon were just waiting until we got to 300 pages to start tweeting out stuff again.

They can have Harper, Keuchel, and Kimbrel...  if we get Machado, Gray, and Pollock.

just posting to get the post number and pages up.  Have nothing to add other than this is an amusing thread.   It would be funny to look back at this thread this summer, if Sox get Machado.

I really don't understand how this dogshit publication survived the financial obliteration of its parent company. It makes me sad, though.

We've (myself included) have been saying this for the last month. 

But it seems like there's only one team left

I really think this could happen either later tonight or tomorrow. It seems like we're finally getting to the finish line.

I'm not panicking about this, and I think we sign him eventually, but at this point, I no longer put any stock in it happening any time soon.

The more JR gets involved, the less likely it is Machado or Harper signs with the Sox.  I don't think there's any arguing that.

How so?

Am I being too cynical in thinking this could be the Phillies trying to misdirect the Sox?  Leak to the media that the Phillies are focusing now on those other players to make the Sox think that their offer to Machado is good, when the Phillies have actually just made a larger offer to Machado?

Posting links to their site is promoting their brand of bullshit. Don't pay any attention to them.
