- Jim and Josh break down the timeline of rumors surrounding the White Sox pursuit of Manny Machado and Bryce Harper.
- What do we make of the rumors? Are the White Sox a serious contender in signing either Machado or Harper? Is it possible to sign either to a seven-year deal?
- The White Sox have a TV deal. How does this benefit the White Sox, and looking ahead to the future, what ways will we watch baseball in five years?
- Lots of P.O. Sox questions about Machado and Harper. Here are the one’s we answered:
#POSox what do you think it would take for the Sox to get Miguel Andujar, if they cannot get Manny and would you like to see this happen?— Greg Stieber (@GregStieber) January 4, 2019
What is your ceiling for years or $ you’d give Harper or Machado? I’ve heard $40m the first 3-4 years with an opt out and that’s crazy town banana pants.— Paul Riker (@paulriker) January 4, 2019
#POSOX Quick question. Could the White Sox frontload a contract to Machado or Harper? If so wouldn’t it be more cost effective since they have a low payroll for the next few years. Would there be any drawback?— Arron (@airflo77) January 4, 2019
