White Sox add another Manny Machado friend

While the Phillies can lure Machado with cash, the White Sox have taken a unique approach: acquire family and friends of the perennial Gold Glove Award candidate.

Since the Yankees are not in on Bryce Harper (by all appearances, at least), Machado going elsewhere would probably slightly help a dark horse like the Cubs on Harper. Mark Feinsand of MLB.com also reported that the Phils are ramping up their efforts for Machado. That goes along with what would figure to be an attractive pitch of Machado being the centerpiece of the final phase of the rebuild, playing alongside Eloy Jimenez, Michael Kopech, Dylan Cease and Luis Robert for the next seven years and forming a perennial contender.

But in due course, Harper will make his decision.

Here's the latest on 26-year-old shortstop/third baseman/ball-punisher Manny Machado, who would be the most compelling free agent in many, many years if not for the other 26-year-old on the market, Bryce Harper.

After years of consistent losing, the White Sox and their loaded farm system are ready to start winning now. The Nationals made Harper a 10-year opening contract offer worth around $300 million earlier this offseason, the report says. The three train together in Miami during the offseason. No amount of brothers-in-law and offseason workout buddies could trump that, right?

Finally, all we can do as fans is await the decision, and hopefully Mr. Levine is correct and it will come sooner rather than later. Receive comprehensive coverage of your teams and stream the White Sox easily on your device.
