Flash Tizzle Posted December 14, 2017 Share Posted December 14, 2017 QUOTE (Jack Parkman @ Dec 14, 2017 -> 01:56 AM) This is so stupid. Why? Kopech or Giolito? Seriously? With no guarantees that he re-signs? Again, there has to be a 72 hr window otherwise forget it. IMO trading either of those guys for Machado, with one year of control, when he is almost certainly going to test the open market is a fireable offense. I would hope that either Kenny or Jerry are grabbing Hahn by his tie and telling him if he even discussed them with the O's that his job is on the line. But this is the White Sox, so they do stupid things from time to time. If they pull a stunt of this proportion, I won't be going to nearly as many games this season. This is contradictory and bulls***. I'm a bit shocked they'd even be in consideration for Machado given their rebuilding timeline. Why rush? Do they believe exclusively negotiating with him now is better than next offseason? It's a hell of a risk, and honestly they're going on his word -- "yeah sure I'll consider you guys. I promise." I'm not quite at your level of anger, but trading for Machado and not immediately signing him is a fireable offense. I won't tolerate a wait and see approach throughout the season, it'll be a constant distraction. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
