    Gotta be the great San Diego weather....I mean you got two shit teams but at least the Sox future looks bright. But don't fret Sox fans, the kid phones it in at times and that wouldn't sit well with Renteria. Keep building, Hahn...neither the player or the timing was right anyway.

    Never expected to land him. A player in his prime (regardless of his effort lapses)? Nah. That's not how the White Sox do business.

    I think their pursuit of Machado and Harper was/is all show to convince fans we're putting in the effort.

    yup. why would they think he would take a discount to come to the white sox? you had to be on board with 300m from the start or you never really had a shot. honestly, any other year and it probably would've been more.

    Yeah...no shit.

    Always priced above our smart ceiling.

    That means Harper wants 301, so anty up or remove your offer and quit pretending.

    Go get that left handed right fielder to complete this team.

    The Chicago sports media seems more upset about this than the White Sox fans, which is odd. Its like the fans didn't really expect the White Sox to get Machado, while the media thought the White Sox were the favorites to sign Machado.

    I don't give a flying fuck about this team until the Reinsdorks no longer own it.

    I never once got my hopes up about actually landing Machado or Harper. Cheap owner won't allow us to spend the necessary money to land players of their caliber (in their prime).

    I'm convinced our involvement is just a PR move to give the illusion we're trying to compete when we really were never willing to spend the type of money to land Machado.
