  1. Absolutely not. The players association would revolt if Harper got 7/220. He gets 290 at absolute minimum, and Machado ends up at 260 minimum.
  2. She is probably making social commentary about all the THOTs out there looking silly and stupid Charles is trying hard to make a connection. Theo's wife doesn't give a crap about dropping hints on the Cubs.
  3. Padres just checking in...NO real plan on signing Harper....as assumed... https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/padres/sd-sp-padres-bryce-harper-mlb-nationals-free-agent-20190131-story.html
  4. Really...this just pushes the Phillies to up their offer into "stupid money" and they get him...while we get Machado at a bit higher clip than we are comfortable with...and a range that SD will NEVER reach. My guess on this is that Harper goes to Phillies at 10/335 and Sox land Machado at 8/275 Boras gets his guy highest contract ever...Lozano settles for less years but a high AAV and both agents can blow their gross wads into cocaine and 3rd summer houses.
  5. https://nyp.st/2RZTtJm Phillies GM is saying they only get one just as Hahn said. They clearly don't want to pony up over Sox offer on Machado if they think they land Harper. While the timing may still be down the road...the narrative really is similar to JD last year where the deals are not outrageous and it gets done in February.
  6. Best thing that could happen is Moustakas wants to sign this week and takes a reasonable offer from the Pads and Harper signs with Phillies for something not outrageous. Lozano would have ZERO leverage outside of trying to incite that Yankees are still lurking.
  7. I can certainly bet that at least 1/3 of the binder put together by Boras is focusing on that season and why it will happen again. If you ever get the time to read a leaked binder they are insane. He projects good players to replicate HOF numbers based on crazy deep dives of stats and somehow convinces owners that it is legit.
  8. Agreed. But it would be 10/326...because Boras.
  9. Since joining with this new account, all of my posts have been made inside my house or work...making me a true insider that could use some sun and a REAL rumor.
  10. Manny Machado will sign a contract with the Chicago White Sox* *Potentially. Hopefully by ST.
  11. Doom and Gloom Monday? Good lord man, they are still in this. I know frustration has set in on the waiting game, but realistically Lozano was always playing this game. Herrera, Colome and Nova all have a chance to be upgrades and a Jon Jay style player is a nice bridge to get .1 WaR players off the field until Robert/Gonzalez/Adolfo are ready. Wait until Spring training starts and these "3 to 4" moves shake out.
  12. If you can get Manny for 8/270, why bother spending 10/326. That doesn't mean Sox wont pay more to play on Harper since he adds a ton of marketing value, but if you can get the guy that is a better fit for your team with a better WaR for cheaper...that's smart FO work
  13. I would take moustakas on a cheap 2 year deal if he is available. Yolmer is super sub they get a bit more WaR in the infield. I feel bad for all the guys waiting on harpchado. Destroyed their market.
  14. Agree, but if he picks us over San Diego and Philly with close offers because those boys...it's worth it. And Jay was a good get for the money anyways
  15. Lozano absolutely will come back and ask. That is why San Diego is involved now. Squeeze every bit he can since they are going to be at least 50 million off the 10/350 mark he probably told Manny he would get.
  16. Maybe Sox go hard after Harper if they miss out on machado. That is the beauty of having two options ...
  17. That meant 300 million minimum. Lozano was waiting for another team no matter what.
  18. What Is interesting to me the most at this point now is the Phillies plan. Will they put a Machado offer in at all? Because if they don't, and it's Sox vs Padres...Padres will be the team needing a decently higher bid. Taxes are much higher, he'd be further from Miami and he said he didn't enjoy the west coast. Plus his buds being on Sox is a plus. If Philly isn't bidding to stay on Harper we still have a great chance....I put Padres at 8/270 tops. We beat that.
  19. yeah. That is why I think this is Lozano trying to push the last offer out of Philly and Chicago. It actually would be good if Padres put in an offer as well. Will really move the urgency of this.
  20. But he was never available for 200. It has always been 250+ and as many of us here have said 8/280ish is most likely.
  21. This article sounds like an Agent asking for a favor to try and kick up one last offer. This nugget is hilarious... The Padres became players in the pursuit of Machado a week ago when reports surfaced of a price that was far lower than expected. Right....they just decided to get involved after hearing they might be able to get him for still at least $28-30 AAV a season. Not likely.
  22. I have been checking in on Manny Machado too....every 10 minutes on this site. Hasn't signed yet. Won't be with the Braves.
  23. It would definitely be more contact than a months worth of at bats...
