Chicago Tribune -
The White Sox’s pursuit of Manny Machado is guided in part by what might be called a Netflix strategy.
(No, this is not a reference to Netflix’s “Bird Box” and that stupid and dangerous meme in which people go around with their eyes covered.)
Today virtually everyone knows Netflix. But before that, Netflix went on a binge of signing pricey deals with big-name stars and content producers to win over consumers who might not have even known what a streaming service was.
The resulting programs were uneven, and Netflix continues to face criticism from those who believe it can ill afford to throw around as much money as it has.
From the beginning, however, what Netflix couldn’t afford was to be ignored.
That’s the 2019 White Sox for you.
There has been much talk that the Sox play for Machado may pay off.
In truth it already has.
Didn't like the verse.
Didn't like the chorus.
Didn't like the song.
But now I do.
