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

Tulowitzki, Yankees finalize one-year deal

As the offseason continues for the Philadelphia Phillies, all of the main focus for the team this weekend will be on the meeting that is finally taking place with outfielder Bryce Harper.

It will come down to dollars and sense.

In a city where high rollers are known to bet anywhere from $10k to $1M per hand, are the Phillies entering "how much is too much" territory when it comes to Harper?

The White Sox must really want Manny Machado.

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.

Machado and fellow mega free agent Bryce Harper reportedly don't love the idea of playing in Philadelphia, a notoriously ruthless sports town with a roster that could use some improvements to keep pace with the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals in a competitive NL East.

While a decision may be coming soon, it's still unclear who has the lead in the bidding.

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com wrote that there is "momentum building" toward Harper going back to D.C. He also noted that Machado is receiving offers between $25 and $28 million annually.

All three of the aforementioned teams have made offers to Machado, with the White Sox not expected to extend one for more than seven years at a top-market price. Receive comprehensive coverage of your teams and stream the White Sox easily on your device.
