Phillies, White Sox View Mike Moustakas As Fallback To Manny Machado

Speaking of Harper, it's always been expected that he'd wait for Machado to sign so that he and Scott Boras could top Machado's deal.

Of course, all of this is just speculation until the infielder makes his decision and signs on the dotted line. It's the second player the White Sox have acquired with ties to the All-Star as they also traded for his brother-in-law Yonder Alonso in a deal with the Indians. Both teams with money to spend and ready to compete right now. On the other hand, Philadelphia is preparing another offer for Machado, which should get closer to his reported asking price of $300 million.

Ted Lerner, 93, is one of the game's wealthiest owners, and often acts likes one, particularly when negotiating with agent Scott Boras on players such as Harper and Rendon.

Before the Philadelphia Phillies contingent of Andy MacPhail, Matt Klentak, Gabe Kapler and John Middleton travel to Las Vegas, Nevada, this weekend to meet with Bryce Harper and his agent, the club will reportedly amp up its offer to fellow superstar free agent, Manny Machado. However, while many rumors have floated around that Manny's wife is "enamored" with NYC, there is no indication that the Yankees have even offered Machado a deal... yet.

Dominican Republic sports reporter Hector Gomez tweeted on Wednesday that the White Sox are in the final two in the race for Machado with Phillies.

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.
