Phillies, White Sox Finalists for Manny Machado

11 January 2019

What's more is that the Phillies are also still in on Bryce Harper too, which would make them the MLB's version of a super team.

A couple weeks after trading for Machado's brother-in-law, they reached a one-year, $4 million agreement with 33-year-old outfielder Jon Jay, according to USA Today, on Monday night.

The baseball world is waiting with bated breath for the free agency decisions of Manny Machado and Bryce Harper. Levine speculates that the meeting with Harper could act as a sort of deadline for Machado to make his decision.

That is a risky game for Machado and his agent, Dan Lozano, to play, because Boras is going to attack the Phillies' contingent of decision makers with fastballs that will make a solid case for his client.

A tweet from Hector Gomez of ZDeportes stated the race for Machado is down to two teams, the Chicago White Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies. While the Yankees did sign Troy Tulowitzki for the league minimum, this does not rule them out on Machado.

Finally, all we can do as fans is await the decision, and hopefully Mr. Levine is correct and it will come sooner rather than later. Levine reported that momentum is building for the White Sox.

The same report quoted former Nationals' GM and current MLB Network Radio analyst Jim Bowden suggesting the Phillies' contingent shouldn't even get on the plane if they can't offer Harper at least 10 years and $350 million.
