  • Tulowitzki, Yankees finalize one-year deal

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. While the Yankees did sign Troy Tulowitzki for the league minimum, this does not rule them out on Machado.

Of course, all of this is just speculation until the infielder makes his decision and signs on the dotted line.

The White Sox, New York Yankees, and Philadelphia Phillies are the three known teams involved in a bidding war for the 26-year-old free agent, but there may be an unknown club in the mix, sources told Levine. Both teams with money to spend and ready to compete right now. The White Sox have formally made Machado an offer.

In what seems like a make-or-break meeting, the team will reportedly fly a handful of executives to Sin City on Saturday - including owner John Middleton - to meet with Harper and his agent, Scott Boras.

1st flu-related child death reported in New Jersey
You may have a little low-grade fever, little achiness a day or two after getting the flu shot . The death toll is lower, too, having reached a total of 91 at this point last season.

The White Sox, Yankees and Phillies have all been linked to 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.

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

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