I'd rather sign Machado then go after Trout in two years.

Heard Stark on the radio today say would you rather have Machado/Harper this year or Arenado/Trout next year or whatever. Obviously just a hypoethical but that's a risk

if you sign machado and harper now it pretty much takes you out of the trout running in 2 years...thats like 90 mil+ tied up in 3 players, which isnt even feasible

trout is really the only superstar who would want to sign here. hes a weirdo who likes dumpy jersey diners and the eagles.

Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.

I mean, shtein if this is true....why not just throw 8 years and 200 mil at him? That leaves more than enough room to make a run at Trout in 2 years.

Funny stuff considering itís their own fault for not signing already.  Teams arenít willing to back up the armored trucks and dump loads of cash anymore, mostly because they canít.   A few can but most of them are already tied up.   Thatís limited their choices.  Itís basic economics at work. 

But sure, blame the teams for refusing to be extorted because thatís productive. 

Also - Winter Storm Harper is about to unload on the northeast.  Coincidence?   😆

Iím not sure what constitutes an armored truck but Harper has already been offered at least 300 million

the loser in all this is going to be whatever teams who have been in the mix that donít get one of these guys

I canít even imagine the embarrassment for the white sox or Phillies if either organization whiffs on both

Boras could still swindle someone into giving Brycie his dough, but it sure looks more probable heíll end up getting the highest AAV for a shorter term.  That would be ideal for the Phillies because they have the most room and the most to give.

the white sox are in the fake sweepstakes...they are a bottom 5 team with no fan base...they are pretending to be in to say they were in....the phillies are IN and if they whiff they are never living it down

This Harper/Machado melodrama is the dumbest thing ever.  Pick a team already, iceholes.
