A deadline for Manny? Dumb-dumb-dumb-dumb-dumb

Can we please disabuse ourselves of the notion that Machado is somehow insulting the White Sox by not signing yet? With the eleventy billion tweets circulating in perfect he said/she said/agent said/Manny said/some mook in Philly grunting at Manny said/Manny’s sister-in-law said/@MLB Twitter account said/Reinsdorf said manner, some are floating the notion that, hey, the Chicago White Sox should just say, screw this, and give Manny Machado a hard deadline, yea or nay, put your goddang new jersey on over your dress shirt and smile for the camera or go stick your cornrows where the sun...

Blue Jays Crazy Talk – Would Manny Machado Now Fit In Toronto?

Could the Blue Jays have a shot at signing anny Machado?  And if they did, would they want him? Many writers have been surprised at the lack of love for Manny Machacho shown by teams so far.  The latest offer – reputedly 7 years and $175 million – is less than half the 13/$390m predicted […] Blue Jays Crazy Talk – Would Manny Machado Now Fit In Toronto? - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

NYY News: Rumors got Manny things wrong about White Sox offer for Machado, per his agent

NYY News: Rumors got Manny things wrong about White Sox offer for Machado, per his agent

Machado’s agent refutes rumors of White Sox offer; DJ LeMahieu is excited to be a Yankee; some footage of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig taking batting practice MLBTradeRumors | Steve Adams: If you thought we weren’t going to open this link dump with Manny Machado news, you were mistaken. Yesterday, both Buster Olney and Bob Nightengale suggested that the White Sox were offering Machado a 7-year, $175 million dollar deal. Or, in Yankee terms, just $22 million more than the Jacoby Ellsbury contract. However, Machado’s agent Dan Lozano offered a slight rebuttal to that, stating that the offer...

Where's the free agent market for former Orioles star Manny Machado?

Even in a years-long free agency slowdown where teams have been reluctant to spend long-term on players who had accrued the service time to test the open market, Manny Machado and his ilk were supposed to be immune to this condition. Yet as January rolls on and Machado, the one-time Orioles superstar,...

Chicago Cubs Rumors: Manny Machado offered seven years, $175 million?

In this slow offseason, Chicago Cubs rumors are scarce. Meanwhile, Manny Machado and Bryce Harper seem to pop up daily. Here’s the latest. Although a number of free agents have already signed and many trades have been made, the focus of the MLB offseason remains on marquee free agents Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. That means […] Chicago Cubs Rumors: Manny Machado offered seven years, $175 million? - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - A Chicago Cubs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Will the White Sox’s reported offer of $175 million be enough to land Manny Machado?

The White Sox repeatedly warn fans not to believe every rumor they hear concerning the team’s offseason pursuits. Just a few days ago a source denied an ESPN report saying the Sox had offered Manny Machado eight years, instead of seven, to play on the South Side. But the Sox can’t stop rumors from...

MLB Transaction Watch: Manny Machado and the free agent freeze

MLB Transaction Watch: Manny Machado and the free agent freeze

The White Sox are reported to have offered Machado seven years and $175 million. At times it has felt like there has been a lot of action this offseason, however, for free agents that was a mirage. The vast majority of the action this postseason has been in the form of trades. It’s been a downright frigid environment for all but a few of baseball’s free agents. Earlier in the offseason I noted that the sheer number of free agents exploded at the non-tender deadline. There were 201 free agents at the start of the offseason, that then ballooned to 245 MLB players. Of those, four players...

The Yankees hope DJ LeMahieu can shore up a shaky defensive infield

The Yankees hope DJ LeMahieu can shore up a shaky defensive infield

Without Didi Gregorius for at least half the season, the Yankees needed some kind of defensive stability in the infield. Will their latest signing fit the bill? It wasn’t the infield signing that many Yankees fans hoped it would be, but the Bombers did sign free agent second baseman DJ LeMahieu to a two-year deal last week, going over the luxury tax threshold to do so. No, not by as much as they would have if they signed Manny Machado, but given the team’s recent strategy, taking on financial penalties is at the very bottom of the team’s wish list. So why go over for LeMahieu, while...

What the White Sox would get in Manny Machado

What the White Sox would get in Manny Machado

Elite hitting, elite defense at third, and, finally: a true superstar As the baseball world burns over the offer the Chicago White Sox made to Manny Machado ($25 million AAV? $31.25 million AAV? ... jeez, ESPN, can you at least get your own story straight), a reminder that it is still the only reported offer. So while we’re not exactly photoshopping Manny into White Sox black quite yet — we’ll leave that to @MLB — and most of us are familiar with what Machado brings to the table, this superstar and potential Hall-of-Famer is too impressive not to dive into. The Offense Machado has...

The latest on Yankees target Manny Machado: White Sox made a lowball offer

The Yankees might be betting on DJ LeMahieu and the Coors Field hangover

The Yankees might be betting on DJ LeMahieu and the Coors Field hangover

If the “Coors Field effect” can explain DJ LeMahieu’s dreadful road performance, the Yankees’ new infielder could have untapped offensive potential. The Yankees signed DJ LeMahieu last week to shore up their infield. That, of course, has caused some consternation. The move was met with, shall we say, a polarizing reaction, with much of the fanbase up in arms about the team’s apparent disinterest in Manny Machado. Others heralded the move as rock-solid, with the Yankees importing a well-rounded player that suits their needs. Indeed, LeMahieu does bring some welcome defensive...

With Manny Machado unlikely, here's how Yankees can overtake Red Sox
