4 talking points Phillies should make during upcoming meeting with Bryce Harper

Troy Tulowitzki

The Philadelphia Phillies, the Chicago White Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers were said to be the front-runners at the time.

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 Manny Machado sweepstakes are nearing its official conclusion.

It would be quite a shock, from a fit perspective, to see the Yankees out on Machado, who makes so freaking much sense for them and who reportedly really wants to be a Yankee. New York Yankees designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton's 13-year, $325 million contract tops Major League Baseball in terms of total value, while Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Zach Greinke's six-year, $206.5 million deal pays him a record $34.4 million per year.




The Phillies have probably been the most aggressive team in the Manny Machado sweepstakes, and after already making the star IF an offer, are reportedly ready to make him a second offer.

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.

However, according to MLB Network's Mark Feinsand, the momentum has shifted and it is now looking more likely that Harper would return to Nationals after they upped their initial offer.

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