That wasn’t my point. People are pointing to his recent tweets floating about his previous reports as good news for Sox, but it is outdated and doesn’t reflect on what the current situation apparently is with San Diego being much more aggressive.

He had a post earlier saying Padres are 2nd on his list

I've often thought about why Merkin and Van Schowen etc. got fed the 7/175M info. It might be so that we can top out at 250M and have that seem like a late bump up to win, and have that be the local-news story

Heyman has tweeted variations of this like 15 times today lol

He said *at least* so there's a chance that both the Phillies and Padres are 'left out.' :) :)

Yes, the payment would be in florida (he lives in Miami) where there are no state taxes...and not playing baseball so it’s pure income from home residence.  

Sox can easily counter by 1) front loading contract and 2) promising  their “deferral” as a team ambassador role for life, which is what Thome, Thomas and others (GarPax?) have pitched to Bryce and Manny

I don’t think Sox offer would consist of significant deferrals.

Padres were brought in like cousin oliver at the end of the show's run. Manufactured to help Lozano save face. Goodnight, team

I like this, lol. Don't even care if it's true or not with the Padres.

I don’t follow.  Hector has stood strong that our offer weeks ago was $8/$250M.  If so, that is fantastic news because it means at a very minimum we’re currently equal to the Padres or within shooting distance.  If we you believe what Nightengale & Heyman have said, we are way behind the Padres right now and I’d personally be terrified that we have no attention of approaching $300M.  Hector’s reporting is a good thing if true.

I hope sometime Monday the Sox go from a Level 1 Crook to a Level 100 Boss.

I don't want him any more. Send his sorry ass to Philly so he can deal with those abysmal fans.

So back at Soxfest, Hahn said he hopes that there's 3 or 4 more moves this offseason. When Manny is signed, what else?

A SP & OF would be my best guesses.

More like ESCAPE ROOM.

I don't know if there's enough energy left over for full-out PANIC at this point in time.

It's either a sense of relief we FINALLY sign Machado (overlaid with concerns about him exercising an early opt-out) OR pretty much total nuclear meltdown/Chernobyl/Armageddon/Thanos snapping his fingers if they swing and miss with almost EVERYTHING POSSIBLE working in their favor in terms of market conditions (and considering how disappointing 2018 turned out).

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Padres' offer to Manny Machado is as high as $280 million over eight years.

That's a nice increase over the over the $240 million that other clubs have reportedly offered. The Padres were also creative in the way they structured the contract for Eric Hosmer last offseason and could be looking to do something similar here. As of now, the Padres look to be in the lead in the race for Machado.

So Bob Nightengale is accusing Lozano of lying? If he's telling some teams one number and other teams another number, he's lying to somebody. Ironic given Lozano's statement a month or so ago.

Chance that Lozano gets angry again and chastises Nightengale  ? 0 %
