Manny Machado Still Seeking More Than $325 Million, Yankees Out

Manny Machado Still Seeking More Than $325 Million, Yankees Out

It's not even out of the realms of possibility that his decision comes within the next week. And once again, it wasn't Manny Machado. The meeting with Harper might serve as an artificial deadline of sorts for Machado.

The White Sox and Phillies have both finished below.500 in each of the last six seasons.

Speaking of Harper, it's always been expected that he'd wait for Machado to sign so that he and Scott Boras could top Machado's deal.

The Phillies are the third team to unsuccessfully make a run at Harper after he previously met with the White Sox and Dodgers, though reports have suggested Chicago and Philadelphia are the only teams willing to offer the veteran a 10-year deal.

LeMahieu comes to NY after eight seasons with the Rockies.

While the Colorado Rockies have been slow to sign players this offseason - only landing Daniel Murphy so far - they have now lost one of their most key players in DJ LeMahieu. If New York does not sign Machado, the page creator Joshua Anderson from Belton, MO says he will donate all funds to the Coalition for the Homeless in New York City so either way, the money won't go to waste. After the report from The Athletic's Jim Bowden about the Nationals' latest offer being "much more" that the $300 million offer at the end of the season, it appears as though the Nats may at least compete with the Phillies financially if they secure Machado. So assuming the Machado domino falls soon, we could finally see this scenario play out in the next week or so. Expect some more rumors to break on the subject over the next few days.
