This bit of information from Nightengale comes just two weeks after Machado attended meetings with the White Sox, Yankees, and Phillies in their respective cities. He reportedly will sign with the Yankees if the offers are close, but they won't be. But today, the tone changes for the Chicago White Sox, as a different star free agent took the headlines. Levine's first tweet on the matter stated the Sox weren't willing to go over seven years in any contract for either Harper or Machado according to "high ranking industry sources". Levine would later follow up stating that Harper already has offers of 10 years from teams that should go with a 5 WAR player. It appears the team knows that, and they are willing to break the bank to sign either player.
Over the past few days, there have been increased rumors about Manny Machado circulating.
ESPN's Jeff Passan reports that Harper has met multiple times with Nationals' representatives and that staying in D.C.is a distinct possibility for the 26-year-old slugger. David Vassegh, who works for AM 570, the radio home of the Los Angeles Dodgers, said on the radio Thursday that he's talked with someone who thinks Machado will end up on the South Side.
