Phillies, White Sox Finalists for Manny Machado

Tulowitzki, Yankees finalize one-year deal

The New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox have reportedly all extended offers to the 26-year-old.

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.

Alonso, however, is only under contract for two more seasons, and Jay was only a given one year deal, so I'm not sure that a guy like Machado would make a long term commitment to an organization exclusively on their willingness to obtain his associates short term.

Manny Machado is getting closer to deciding which team he will sign for.

Moustakas is represented by Scott Boras, who also represents Bryce Harper.

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.

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.

As Rosenthal pointed out, Jay joins a White Sox team that is believed to be in pursuit of free agent infielder Manny Machado, Jay's good friend. Levine reported that momentum is building for the White Sox.

We might soon find out, if the next seven days truly do provide Machado's decision.
