I believe it is in the best interest of the Cubs for the Phillies to get Machado. If the Phillies don't get Machado, I don't see the Cubs being able to offer Harper nearly as much as they could offer him.

To be clear, my primary demand is that Ricketts stops being a cheap ass and carries through on the following plan:

Still think Machado is the better signing anyway if he plays 3B.

Theo's actually wondering how easy it would be to set up the same shots from that 30 for 30 short about how he missed on ARod.

I would let KB announce the Harper signing at the Convention. And then have Harper announce the Machado signing a little later in the day. But that's just me. I'm crazy like that.

I can think of one guy, look at how he embraces the tiny face. That’s true bromance

The longer this drags out and the longer we make no moves of substance it makes me think we are more in on Bryce than is known. I think we have the moves/trades lined up to sign him if he tells us he wants to come/accepts our offer, but we aren’t going to make those moves if he doesn’t come because we need Heyward, Zobrist Happ, whoever it takes to move $$ etc. to win this year without Bryce and we don’t have the room to sign Bryce and do any of the reliever moves that have been done (Miller, Britton, etc) so that’s why we’ve done nothing essentially since we need to wait on Bryce. I also still think Descalso was brought in as some insurance in case Zobrist, Happ, Bote go in a trade to clear room for Bryce and if it doesn’t happen he’s overqualified for the LaStella role which is fine.

yeah, i mean to me, intuitively speaking, there's no way we are so cash strapped that we can do literally nothing. we must be in a holding pattern for harper (or possibly machado).

Or both! Since that would most fall in line with this creative talk Epstein was giving early in the offseason....It doesn’t take a whole lot of creativity to get Harper on the Cubs. Getting Machado as the still needed impact RH bat, who also happens to easily knock the humiliation that is Russell off the roster, would require going above and beyond.
