It's not even out of the realms of possibility that his decision comes within the next week.

There's been noise this week that the Yankees are less aggressively after Manny Machado than anticipated. The meeting with Harper might serve as an artificial deadline of sorts for Machado.

Now it's over to Bryce Harper and his agent Scott Boras to make their next move, which could be to check back in with the Nationals and other teams based on the Phillies' offer.

The White Sox and Phillies have both finished below.500 in each of the last six seasons.

Mueller has indicted 33 people in the probe and convicted some of the president's close associates. The Times says it's unclear whether Mueller is still pursuing the counterintelligence angle.

LeMahieu will reportedly make $24 million over the next two seasons in the Bronx.

For the Yankees to truly be out on Machado at this point, he'd have to have offers in hand from the White Sox and Phillies that he knows he would be comfortable accepting, and also he'd have to know that the Yankees definitely will not be approaching those offers. According to The Score in Chicago, the White Sox remain a viable landing spot with only Chicago, the Phillies and the New York Yankees as known contenders for Machado.

Machado's market has yet to develop as he likely hoped it would, with teams becoming more and more cautious towards big-ticket free agents.

Despite being considered the favorites to sign LeMahieu, he has found a different home.

It has been more than three weeks since Machado met with the Yanks in NY, and Jack Curry of the YES Network reports that there has been barely any communication between the two sides over that period.

Late last night we learned that the Phillies added Machado's former infield coach. So from Harper's perspective, if the money is at least close between the two teams, it would stand to reason that he would return to the nation's capital.
