It appears Machado is a Chicago versus Philly battle now


DJ is such an underrated player

glad to get him out of the NL west


I honestly had to look him up. I never heard of him.

Then I saw he was with Colorado, and it made sense.


No, he is a legit player

I am not a Rockies fan, but this guy is a really good hitter. His stats aren't Coors inflated, IMO.


Apparently, he once won an NL batting title.

Who knew?

I find I’m suffering more and more from sports-related short-term memory loss. I can tell you that Rogers Hornsby won the 1924 NL batting crown with a .424 average, but I can’t tell you who won it just last year.


Philly is rumored to have/will offer Harper $350MM

They meet tomorrow.

Heyman reported that no one has given Machado his $300MM+ offer yet that he and his agent have been seeking.

There are still some rumors wafting the Phillies might entertain signing both depending on how the market shapes out.


phils can have him for $350M

did they not learn from Howard(and yes, i know harper is younger)?


Not really the same situation

Howard was a much more flawed player than Harper. Once Howard had his power sapped, he was not very good.

Harper won't collapse as quickly as Howard did.


They are different players

But let's also not lose sight of Harper's past few seasons.

If you get the 2015 Harper, yes.

But the 2016 and 2018 (and to some extent the 2017 Harper) aren't as dominant as that 2015 Harper.

I don't know the root cause, and not sure if anyone does, but his numbers would give me some pause.


Have Phillies added Boras to signature card of payroll acct? *
