White Sox reportedly to sign D-backs free agent outfielder Jon Jay


Per MLB insider Bob Nightengale, the Yanks are still in the hunt for Machado's services, albeit far behind the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox.

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.

Alonso, however, is only under contract for two more seasons, and Jay was only a given one year deal, so I'm not sure that a guy like Machado would make a long term commitment to an organization exclusively on their willingness to obtain his associates short term.

The pace of the Major League Baseball offseason has gotten harder and harder to predict, though there is a report from The Score's Bruce Levine in Chicago that Machado's decision could come within a week. But there have been rumors that the Yankees are only lukewarm on Machado, and may not even top TWO hundred million in an offer.

What's more is that the Phillies are also still in on Bryce Harper too, which would make them the MLB's version of a super team.

Subsequently, the RTX 2060 was presented to be 40-60% faster than the GTX 1060 , which, in turn, is around $100 less expensive. Pricing, detailed configuration options, and exact availability will vary and is not yet available for all manufacturers.

Both clubs have been linked to Harper as well.

The Yankees, who Manny Machado reportedly favors, have been quietly having a decent offseason.

Of course, that's been one of the biggest issues for Philadelphia since other teams like the Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago White Sox, and obviously the Washington Nationals have been pushing to convince Harper as well.

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