ChiSox make Machado 7-year offer

Hal Steinbrenner Bryce Harper

The Philadelphia Phillies have been linked to both Bryce Harper and Manny Machado in free agency, but they won't be signing both superstars.

Nightengale raised a question of who exactly would outbid the Phillies for Harper, considering "everyone knows the money" they have.

After reports surfaced that the Chicago White Sox had an eight-year deal on the table for Manny Machado, a new report suggests the actual offer is a seven-year contract worth $175 million, according to Buster Olney of ESPN. Many speculated the Yankees easily could top the Sox's offer, though so far they've remained on the periphery of the pursuit and reportedly haven't made an offer.

That's just a whole lot of angry in one press release.

Nightengale and ESPN's Buster Olney were ridiculed on Wednesday by Machado's agent, in which he claims the two reported on his client "inaccurately" and "recklessly".

With the White Sox and Machado, that was said to have reached a point where a seven-year contract offer was made to the shortstop.




Whether this means that Chicago isn't interested in Machado remains to be seen.

Do the Phillies Really Have a Preference? It's another market that the Phillies appear to be firmly in on, and it would have a knock-on effect on the Harper market.

We all know the Padres have been rebuilding since that 2015 season where they had Kemp, Kimbrel, Shields, both the Upton brothers, and Derek Norris, but still ended up with the same old 74 win season. "Both guys would be flawless fits", Nightengale said. "There's more 'pizzazz, ' a little bit like a modern-day Reggie Jackson, where he goes on the road and you either boo him or cheer him; like a polarizing guy".

Bryce Harper #34 of the Washington Nationals rounds second base to score on Daniel Murphy #20's (not pictured) game winning double in the tenth inning during a baseball game against the Philadelphia Phillies at Nationals Park on April 14, 2017 in Washington, D.C. The Nationals won 3-2 in ten innings.

So when it came to the thought of Harper and Machado both making the decision to come to Philadelphia to immediately make the team a top contender in the National League, this idea didn't sound so insane after all.
