New Momentum For Machado To White Sox

From CBS SPORTS


The prevailing feeling across the MLB landscape is that momentum is building for the White Sox in the Manny Machado sweepstakes.  



Also of note: The report indicates the Machado decision is going to happen "within a week." 


Further, it sounds like the deal might end up in the seven-year range and be closer to $200 million than $300 million. While many fans might scoff at such a notion, this is a big problem for the MLBPA. Players are making less money compared to MLB revenue than they have in well over a decade. A generational talent like Machado at age 26 getting significantly less than, say, Albert Pujols did at age 32 seven seasons ago simply isn't acceptable with MLB annually setting revenue records. 


Regardless, at least one report has the White Sox, who have recently acquired two players close to Machado, as the leader in the clubhouse.

ChiSox are poised to dominate that division in a year or two. The addition of Machado may speed up that timetable.


I have family in Chicago. Most are Cubs fans, but a few southsiders. Those that are ChiSox fans have expressed the same reservations as Yankee fans re Machado..."his johnnyhustle BS may destroy a young impressionable team".

Manny may be younger than Pujols but Manny does not have anywhere close to the numbers that Pujols had. Pujols is an automatic HOF'er. Manny if he continue at his current numbers is not likely a HOF'er.

You are exactly right, Pujols had a tremendous resume when he signed his deal, with considerably better stats than Machado has. Pujols was a true generational talent. Machado is not.

Collusion. Plain and simple. The lack of interest/offers to Machado and Harper are proof.


When fans stop watching, and let ownership know why, maybe they change...    But likely a lawsuit will be what happens.

Machado is a good player, not a superstar. If the White Sox want to make him the highest paid player in MLB let them have him.

He says he wants Stanton money? The only stupid owner doing that is the 85 year old Phillies owner.

Not sure about that Davis. I think it's more of owners not willing to go to these long term deals with fears of getting burned in the end in regards to Harper and Machado. Maybe wising up but one will cave then others will follow most likely.

The owners have been pulling that $hit for years, just another way to go about it until the MLBPA hires someone who knows what they are doing.

I think the amount they make is already insane.
