Machado Won't Make Decision Until After The New Year

Manny Machado was seen walking into the Chicago White Sox stadium, driving into Yankee Stadium, but that's nothing like his Philly arrival. Should Machado simply be chasing the dollar, an ensuing bidding war could take the Yankees out of the running quickly. Then he proceeded to explain, in raised voice, why Machado should not leave without signing with the Phils.

Yet the Dodgers - who sank under the luxury-tax threshold previous year to reset the percentage they would pay moving forward - have not pursued Manny Machado at all. If Machado does chose the Yankees, this makes the rookie of the year runner-up Andujar a very valuable trade piece in the Yankees continued hunt for s starting pitcher. "I'm just enjoying the ride".

A source told ESPN that after the ballpark meeting, Machado and his wife, Yainee Alonso, were meeting Phillies officials for dinner at Center City-based Royal Boucherie, a local French-inspired American brasserie.

"I'm not a huge fan, said Sean McGrannaghan". Salisbury indicates the same, portraying Harper as a more realistic target should the Phillies miss out on Machado. Owner John Middleton, president Andy MacPhail, GM Matt Klentak, manager Gabe Kapler and several members of Kapler's coaching staff were on hand to try to sway Machado toward coming to Philadelphia.

Manny Machado has been one of the most talked about names on the Major League Baseball free agency market this offseason and there are quite a few teams interested in signing him. Machado's follow of Segura is intriguing; he has long expressed his interest to play shortstop, however the Phillies acquired Segura to play the position while trading away their former top prospect (of the same position) to land him, J.P. Crawford.
