Phillies to hire Manny Machado's mentor from Baltimore

REPORTS: Manny Machado Still Seeking More Than $325 Million, Yankees Out

One second baseman that they have seemingly been linked to all winter was D.J. LeMahieu, who they are very familiar with considering he played for the division-rival Colorado Rockies the last seven seasons.

The Yankees agreed to a two-year contract with second baseman DJ LeMahieu on Friday, according to the YES Network's Jack Curry.

Israel says all Hezbollah cross-border tunnels found
The Israeli jets reportedly crossed over to Syria through Lebanese airspace after having heavily roamed over Lebanon on Thursday. The raids triggered Syrian air defence to shoot down a lot of them .


There's been noise this week that the Yankees are less aggressively after Manny Machado than anticipated.

While the Phillies are headed to meet with Bryce Harper, the Phillies might have seen their chances increase to sign infielder Manny Machado.

Bernie Sanders adviser accused of harassing female staffer in 2016
The Vermont senator's campaign committee, Friends of Bernie Sanders , said Becker "would not be a part of any future campaigns". "To the women in our campaign who were harassed or mistreated I apologize ", Sanders said at a news conference Thursday.


Of course, Machado's camp could also be using the mystery team as potential leverage in an effort to push the Phillies and White Sox to up their offers to Machado. Machado reportedly still wants a $300 million contract, and potentially one that surpasses Giancarlo Stanton's record-setting $325 million deal.

And now, it seems like a two-horse race for Machado between the White Sox and Phillies. But the general consensus is that he will sign his deal first, with the Phillies and Chicago White Sox the main two players for his services. The Yankees have not publicly made Machado an offer - and with LeMahieu, Andujar, Torres, and Tulowitzki now - they may never get to that point. The meeting with Harper might serve as an artificial deadline of sorts for Machado.

Late last night we learned that the Phillies added Machado's former infield coach. It's unknown exactly what Philadelphia has offered, but it's believed that the Phillies might have indicated to the four-time All-Star that they are willing to pay him around $250 million.
