Phillies rumors: Expect Manny Machado decision in the next week

Writers Jon Heyman and Bob Nightengale were among those to quickly report otherwise, saying the Yankees are still very much involved in the talks for the free agent shortstop, although they urged caution about the New York's approach to the sweepstakes. Reports have suggested that the club will only acquire Harper or Manny Machado this offseason, not both as what was originally reported to be a possibility. In order to seduce Machado to come to the Windy City, the South Siders have signed first baseman Yonder Alonso, Machado's brother-in-law, and outfielder Jon Jay, one of Machado's best friends.

Should they know when to walk away (know when to run), putting all their chips in the Manny Machado basket?

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.

Bruce Levine of the Score 670, a Chicago sports radio station, reported that Machado will make his free agency decision in the next week.

7 people have died in national parks during shutdown; that's not unusual
The news of the National Park Service's decision brought some relief to his wife. " Many park facilities are 50 to 70 years old". Some parks, including those in Utah, are littered with garbage with restrooms locked and roads blocked because of piling snow.

It seems apropos the Phillies' pursuit of coveted free agent Bryce Harper could end in Las Vegas this weekend. In the event that Machado does not sign with them, they would feel even more pressure to sign Harper.

After years of consistent losing, the White Sox and their loaded farm system are ready to start winning now.

He is reportedly down to the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox, per a reputable source.

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