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

Would you have believed at the outset of the offseason that both Bryce Harper and Manny Machado would be unsigned the second week of January? The latter came up to Chicago for a visit to Guaranteed Rate Field to meet with the team's management in hopes of acquiring the talented infielder to accelerate the rebuild.

In 2018, Machado was named an All-Star for the fourth time and had statistically the best year of his career.

Prediction: Dodgers. Los Angeles traded Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig, seemingly to make room for Harper in the outfield.

The Phillies continue to negotiate with Machado, and their desire to sign Harper would only increase if Machado signs with the Yankees or White Sox.

The White Sox have signed Manny Machado's sister to work in the public relations department.

Outfielder Jon Jay and the White Sox have agreed to a one-year, $4-million deal, according to reports. First baseman Yonder Alonso, whose sister is married to Machado, is also part of the same circle. A left side of the infield with Segura and Machado could make a world of difference for Jake Arrieta, Nick Pivetta and Zach Eflin, as outlined here.

In the end, dollars, years and other factors will likely be the most important things determining where Machado signs a long-term deal, but the Sox are leaving no stone unturned in their pursuit. He finished the season with a combined ERA of 2.44 with 17 saves with 38 strikeouts compared to ten walks.
