    ... the sox could sign machado AND harper? that is what is being speculated right now.
    honestly, i don't want machado on this team because he's a complete asshole! i'd take harper tho. :)

    I am a big Harper fan. Kid has got a chip on his shoulder - but he plays the game harder than anybody.

    Machado's a jerk off... yeah. However, if he's at the top of his game - I'm not sure if I care.

    I wouldnt go so far as saying Harper plays harder than anyone. I think Mike Trout has that on lock down...

    Harper is a good player though. A bit of an asshole but a good player. I would happily take him.

    6983DA10-19A9-42E7-868B-387D0DCCDE0A.png A tweet got deleted but they showed the United Center decked out for Harper. I’m guessing whoever leaked the picture is trying to keep his job

    I not only believe the Sox stand zero chance of signing both players, I think they stand zero chance of signing either player. These stories have postseason hype written all over them.

    I would agree if they didn’t have so much money. The Sox need a face of their franchise. The cubs success is another reason I think it’s possible. They have always owned the city but it’s only gotten stronger. The Sox haven’t been relevant in a decade. That’s an entire generation of kids growing up. That being said I’ll be surprised if they end up with either

    I'm simply going by Reinsdorf's history. What has been his biggest and priciest FA signing to date.....think we have to go back to the 90's and Albert Belle for that. I have no problems with signing either player, there is a need for either of both of them. I just don't see it happening whatsoever.

    I'm a bit late in following up on this, but as I'm sure most of you already know by now, Harper turned down a 10 year $300mil deal with his soon-to-be-ex-team, the Nationals. Now seriously, does anyone here really think Reinsdorf is going to dip into his wallet and pay Harper even more than that, and that's assuming Harper would even be interested in joining our club? Seriously? I'm pretty sure the Sox can come up with much more creative and productive usage of such funds.

    look SOMEbody is going to sign him. and perhaps he didn't re-sign with the nats because he didn't want to play for them anymore and would sign for that amount someplace else. and yes, i believe reinsdork could be an owner who would sign him.,

    I'll only believe it when I see it. Until then, I'm filing this potential signing in my "Not a Chance in Hell" folder.

    The chances are low but it would make sense. The Sox are probably ready to shoot for a wild card in 2020 (not next year). So signing a 26 year old stud to a 10 year deal means they are here and still in their prime for 2020-2023, which is the window.

    Sox may be longshots but they should try their damnedest. Even maybe overpay (not both but one or the other)
