Manny Machado's agent has called reports of a seven-year contract offer by the Chicago White Sox to his client "completely wrong," but does that mean the big-name free agent is no longer likely to land in Chicago?
Not according to some Twitter sleuths.
As @ChiSoxFanMike shared Thursday night, Machado appeared to join good friend Jon Jay and brother-in-law Yonder Alonso for some recent California workouts, and fellow fans are convinced that Machado did so while wearing a White Sox hat. (Gasp!) Two men, one of them with a resemblance to Machado, can be seen standing at a batting cage in an Instagram video posted by Alonso's wife, and while one of the men is very clearly wearing a White Sox hat, the other one — the Machado lookalike — simply appears to be wearing the same thing.
