The Chicago White Sox have reportedly offered free agent shortstop Manny Machado a seven year, $175 million deal.  That’s not anywhere close to the $300 million deal he is said to be seeking.

If the White Sox were trying to insult him I would say they’ve done a pretty good job of doing that.  Would you expect anything else from this franchise?

We’ll go ahead and cross the White Sox of the list of potential landing spots for the 26-year-old.  Machado’s not worth $300 million but he’ll definitely find a team that will pay him well into the $200 million range.
