White Sox still waiting for Manny Machado

MLB Rumors: Yankees Prefer Nolan Arenado Over Manny Machado In Third Base Search

While Machado has not signed with anyone yet, he is a popular candidate for the Padres, as well as the Chicago White Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies. It does seem like the Nationals' 10-year, $300 million offer is no longer in play, but it's always possible they circle back.

Pitchers and catchers for a number of Major League Baseball teams have already reported, yet superstar slugger Bryce Harper remains unsigned.

Last week there were rumors the White Sox had offered Machado $250 million over eight years. That's potentially as boneheaded a decision as the Yanks giving Jacoby Ellsbury $153 million/seven years in 2013, a bad contract some saying they're trying to unload on the San Francisco Giants in exchange for the still-injured Johnny Cueto and the insurance payments that are attached to him. But Machado has not accepted that offer because he is weighing his options. He admits that most of the figures mentioned are "educated guesses" but believes the offer is most likely above $175 million but lower than the reported $250 million.

San Diego Padres general manager A.J. Preller flew to Miami last week and met with free-agent infielder Manny Machado, sources confirmed to ESPN's Jeff Passan.

Harper, specifically, established early in the free agency process that he is seeking a record-setting contract.

So what? Why would any team rush to sign Harper to an extended deal, when he's injury-prone and had a crummy season in 2018? The veteran pitcher is certain the outfielder will improve their team but is certain they already have what it takes to win this year. "I think everybody in here would be pretty damn excited to have him".
