If there really is no market over $250M for either than the Sox could get both.

I don't think this will happen but other then the White Sox and Phillies who is in play?  A lot of mystery teams which are all bullshit, there are no mystery teams rather teams are checking in to make certain that $175M is not the gross number. 

If the Sox offer opt outs after 4 years to either or both or front load the shit out of the contracts, who knows what happens.

Both of these guys have some flaws and the stupid money just may not be there.

So my friend's cousin who works for the Sox as a buyer (she's in charge of buying merchandise for the shops so obviously, she would know if something was about to happen) texted him: "Get ready for an announcement on Friday" only to be told just kidding 5 minutes later. That killed me lol no one with that much power should ever abuse it like that.

I would do that every day.

The problem is, you can't really front load the contracts due to the current contract.  The # can't be above or below the AAV average by a fairly low percentage.  I brought it up yesterday actually.  I feel like that hampers rebuilding teams like the Sox

I think if they honestly wanted to sign both, they’d need to either do it the old fashioned way, or try and be transparent about their intentions.

I agree that this would make the most sense.

Feels like a giant setup to be the bridesmaid 

To who?

Everyone who keeps saying this, tell me the two destinations those two go that leaves the Sox in second.

Honestly, if you take weather into account probably the Padres. You also don't know what the Dodgers are going to do. 

I still wouldn't count out a 1-year deal from either or both of them, because the big 4 spenders will have room next year. (Yankees, Sawx(If JDM opts out) Cubs, Dodgers)

Hahaha, do people really, REALLY believe if Machado had a deal in principle or verbal or whatever it wouldn't get out?  So the White Sox could cartoonishly slyly get Harper to agree to terms before Boras found out?

>Just after Machado agrees

Hahn: H-hey Scott, 8/260 is our final offer

Boras: No

Hahn: My phone has 2% battery, w-well do 8/275, not a cent more.

Boras: Are you done with Manny then?

Hahn: Okay my phones dead nevermind byeee

 

Say Hahn has a commitment from Manny for 8/250, with the understanding that if they also sign Bryce, he'll get the same deal.

Hahn: Hey  Scott, how about 8/250?

Scott:  Nope, not nearly enough, we need at least 10/375.

Hahn:  How about 10/350?

Scott:  Are you done with Manny then?

Hahn: No, we're going for both, but I can guarantee you that his contract will not exceed Bryce's

Scott: OK, 10/350 it is!

Hahn signs Harper then immediately changes Manny's terms to 10/350 and announces both signings together.

{Change the actual figures to whatever the market truly is.}

There is ZERO chance either one signs a one year deal.

The Padres aren't getting either one. They havent even made offers.

The Dodgers? Come on man... you're just worried about nothing. The Dodgers and Yankees are out. The Dodgers arent paying high bracket luxury tax.

 

Why would they have room next year but not this year? That makes zero sense. They'll be a year older and less valuable for long term deals too. If they had the money next year they'd have it this.

People really should be taking the Padres more seriously.  Yes, I'm sure he doesn't want to play on the west coast....but I don't think he wants to play in the midwest either.

I doubt he's going to take 2 weeks of weather into account. And the 1 year deal wasn't happening last week and it's still not going to happen.

My skepticism has 100% to do with being able to afford him. While I did not think we could outbid the phillies head to head for one guy, I do think we could easily outbid the padres.

hasn't shack already been defended once here for having some knowledge of things?

i don't see why we attack everyone who contributes - even if what they heard is misleading or untrue. We post absurd twitter rumors all day - might as well let him say his piece without being shot donwn.

Thank you Ray Ray!

Last year it wasn't 2 weeks it was 7 and that is more likely to happen here long-term with the jet stream instability.

The problem I have is... IF the Sox sign Machado, do the Sox then have to keep trading for and signing his Miami buddies? At what point can they "move on" from the whole kindergarten "put the new kid in a class with people he knows" nonsense....

Why? The Padres have no money. They're not going to lock up 400 million on machado and Hosmer when they have consistently run payrolls under 100 million forever.

well the rumors are that Manny would only meet with them if they were willing to possibly meet his asking price, so I think their interest is more sincere than many thought.

I think you are off on the meet his asking price, it was he needed to provide a formal offer for a sit down. They weren't just doing meet and greets this late in process.

If they met his asking price hed be signed. 

Theres no way they would actually not meet with them if they were going to travel to see him. That would be dumb of Lozano. The more perceived bidders the more pressure you can apply.

If he can say, see the Padres really are interested.

My skepticism is high because no one gets in late with the idea of spending 250 million that wasnt in the budget when it started... and if by chance that did happen, it certainly wouldnt be the padres.
