    Curious if the offer made to Machado had a player option.
    If the Nats put in a player option, I think he would have signed months ago.

    White Sox supposedly threw 250/8 on the table for Machado.

    Kyler Murray sticking to football, surprising no one.

    I'm guessing some agent probably wrote the check to the A's already - and probably already fronted Murray the full value of his baseball deal/against his on and off-field income.

    I assume Murray has to pay Boros the full commission on his Oakland contract. After all, the deal was completed in good faith.

    Is 1 year 20 mil worth playing for the White Sox instead of the Yankees? You get more money with little pressure.

    From what I understand, Boros takes a very low, if any, commission from college players signing their first contract. He is more interested in signing the client and investing for the long run, because the real money is in contract No. 2. Not sure how this would work for a player not sticking with baseball.

    Kind of a random question, what is behind the increasing number of baseball fields teams require for a spring training site. Do they bring a lot more players to camp than they have in the past?
