Here's my issue with the #WhiteSox. They planned for two years for this very moment. They zero'd in on Machado, had little competition from any big team. Pumped themselves up through pressers, etc.— Aaron Leming (@AaronLemingNFL) February 19, 2019
Then when it came down to it, they wouldn't pay him what was originally expected.
