Ouch, my heart goes out to Sox fans, I was rotting for you guys. No mater what people think of the Sox, it would have made this city more exciting baseball wise.

I don't say this in a gloating manner because I never thought manny/harper were going to the white sox but are any sox fans still holding out hope for Harper? That being said, I'm a bit surprised he ended up getting $300 mil given how things played out. I'm curious if some of it is deferred money a la stanton/scherzer

Proof to the belief that there's always one team who will be convinced there's another team about to make the signing.

I dont know if the rotting was a typo, but if it was not, its genius.

Wonder what guarantees he got they wont trade him this june?

Well the rott part is closer to the truth.

All good just proves that under value short deals and buying the bro in law vs using that money to actually sign your true target gets you squat.

No other team would give up the $ when it did not also cost players/prospects. That is the guarantee.

I can’t believe you truly think that is likely.

Sox have prospects and low cost players, and refused to pay enough to land Machado.

What the hell are they thinking?

“Well, we won’t be competitive but we have a few bucks in the bank.”

That was one they simply HAD to win.

It was a dog and pony show to get suckers to buy tickets

If you weren’t willing to give 300 day one you realistically weren’t in it

So what does Harper get 325?

Sox offer was 8 250

So, if they really wanted Machado then offering 2 extra yrs and 50 mil should of been an easy counter and then let him decide

Harper obviously going to want more $$$$$ with the yrs
Just not sure if there a team willing to do it

Like SDP just showed, all it takes is one team being convinced that another team is going to do it first. Who saw San Diego going 10/300? Philly just might bite on a 10/330 deal for Harper.

I think SD only did it so they can trade him in a couple years for a bunch of prospects

As far as Philly and Harper, I might be wrong but I thought he didn't like Philly

I would be down for a Myers/pitching prospect for Heyward/Chatwood/cash def.

You really think Machado doesn't have a full NTC at least for the next 2-3 seasons with probably restricted lists? I haven't read any details so if I'm wrong about this, sorry.
