    Manny Machado to the White Sox!?!?!?!?!?

    https://twitter.com/BNightengale

    Yes, the Chicago #WhiteSox indeed have made strong bid for #Orioles 3B Manny Machado as #Orioles field trade offers, as @Ken_Rosenthal said
    The #Whitesox not only have made a strong bid for #Orioles 3B Manny Machado, but actually have made the best offer of the dozen offers the Orioles have received
    The #Orioles are moving aggressively on Manny Machado trade talks and now believe they can move him by the end of the week with the strength of their offers
    If the Chicago #Whitesox acquire Manny Machado, they would have seven months to sign him to long-term deal or trade him again before the July 31 trade deadline to recoup prospects
    The #WhiteSox have no intention of flipping Manny Machado if they land him, they say, insisting he fits into their long-term plans

    I agree, but, i'd hope we could keep both. Lopez & Fulmer sound better...

    Yes, much better. Rodon can be dominate at times,but, can't seem to ever make it through a full season..

    Here is what I wrote in the MLB thread about Machado..........

    White Sox have best minors in baseball.

    Hahn has worked extremely hard in getting the top farm system in baseball. He is not trading for Machado unless they can sign him long term. So if they trade for him I am sure they are going to sign him as well. White Sox have a payroll committed right now for 2018 of $62.6 million and in 2019 they have $9.9 million, so money won't be the issue. They can pretty much give him whatever he wants.

    Now for what they be willing to give up.

    I assume Orioles want an infielder in return. Tim Anderson. Starting pitching Giolito, Cease, Fulmer, Adams. Bats I'd say Micker Adolfo, Jake Burger.

    I read somewhere that the package was 1 of Giolito or Kopech, Fuller and Rutherford

    I think Machado wants to play SS so maybe Tim Anderson goes.

    infielder Manny Machado is reportedly not expected to sign a contract extension if he's traded before the 2018 MLB season.

    If Manny wants to play SS, you let him. We can move Anderson to center.

    Would assume any #WhiteSox trade package offer to Orioles started with Carlos Rodon

    See, Rodon can go, IMO. He has all the talent in the world but ... Boras got into his head, and he's so god dam fragile.

    IMO.........Jimenez,Kopech,Robert,Moncada are untouchable..........Not sure what the Sox are thinking here,but unless he signs before the trade and with a "no opt out" clause and no" NTC" clause,and none of the four above are in the deal...then ok. Still not sure how this makes sense, to somewhat gut the system when you just accumulated the talent???
