Last I heard they were not willing to give him the length of contract he wanted. And I am not a big fan. I would rather they got an everyday 1B from somewhere and use a more set lineup.

Yup, we'll see if they get him. They don't need Machado. I don't know about Harper, the things I've heard about his personality doesn't endear me to him off the bat. On the other hand I'll really miss Puig, made watching the game fun. If they don't get Harper he could be back in 2020.

When did any team care about personality?

Until seeing Machado with the Dodgers I would have been all for the Dodgers getting him, but not now. Same with Harper, though both have a lot of that "me first" attitude that isn't very likable in sports. It's great when you win and play well, it sucks when you don't.

As for Puig, he semed to have changed his attitude and became a hustler. I don't think he will ever be more than what he is, but as a 4th OF he was pretty good.

From a team management perspective, players are just lines on an excel spreadsheet. I know that but I can still have opinions about them and how they play :).

Cubs negate financial impact of Addison Russel's domestic violence suspension if he stays on the active roster. Ridiculous.
Have a heart. He's only making $3.4M/year. Gonna have to show up at ST in a new Maserati or some garbage like that.
