White Sox add another Manny Machado friend

Sonny Gray and CC Sabathia

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.

After trading for Machado's brother-in-law, Yonder Alonso, earlier this offseason, and then signing close friend Jon Jay, many began to speculate that the White Sox were making moves to entice Machado to take his talents to the South Side of Chicago.

The White Sox have signed Manny Machado's dad to replace Roger Bossard as head groundskeeper.

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

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

The primary reason the Phils have prioritized Machado this offseason is that he's a difference-maker offensively and also defensively at third base.

Unfortunately for Chicago, they're not the only team in a position to offer Machado a big contract, and even worse for Chi-Town is that the Sox aren't expected to be very competitive for another year or two.

Harper opted to test free agency this year after turning down what was reportedly a 10-year, $300 million offer from the Nationals.
