We are already well over the luxury tax threshold. 222 mil with the LeMahieu signing.
The Yanks are going to spend on something.

I hope you're right. Pretty dumb to go over the threshold and not reel in one of the big fish. I just don't see it happening. They don't need Machado now and they haven't been linked to Harper at all.

Good let Harper sign with PHI so Machado can sign with CHW. We cannot be outbid by anyone if PHI has already signed Harper.

We need to get this deal done and I don't want to hear garbage about SS. He's a third baseman. He's going to only play 3B. We have a great young SS in Anderson who is a plus defender and 20/20 on offense. He will not be moved for anyone.

Ya'll about to pay this man 400 mil and think he's not going to at least start out at his preferred position of SS?

More like 250m.

And he will play where he's told

Anderson is an extremely flawed player with a .281 OBP

You have to understand, SoCal is thirsty and it blinds him to the White Sox flaws.

The White Sox could sign Machado and Harper, and have the Red Sox trade them back Chris Sale for nothing.....and they'd still suck.

.281 OBP is not a good play at any part of the order.

I would cut Anderson some slack if he was a plus defender at the most premium defensive position, but he wasn't listed among the 20 vote getters at SS in the Fielding Bible Awards published in the 2019 Bill James Handbook.

I liked Anderson as a prospect. Fantastic athlete, but he's not indispensable where he has to play SS over Machado.

Is Beantown feeling left out since I've been piling on Scribe and NYY?

Don't worry you'll be our personal b**** again soon just like you were in the 2005 ALDS.

I hope Santa put some kneepads in your stockings cause you'll soon be needing them. Maybe Mike Klis can teach you how to use them.
