Rosenthal: The Yankees are now out on Manny Machado, right? Well…

Charlie Tilson rounds first base on an RBI triple against the Cleveland Indians at Guaranteed Rate Field

Machado may be the answer to their attendance woes, though Sox fans historically only support teams that are winning and have little patience for the alternative.

Late last night we learned that the Phillies added Machado's former infield coach. But at this point in the free agent process, surely you already know that, right?

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic recently wrote that the Phillies actually prefer Machado over Harper in free agency.

This move nearly guarantees that the Yankees are out of the race for Manny Machado. "These guys are still so young (both 26), so if things aren't what they want they could gamble and take a much shorter deal and try [free agency] again in the near future".

All of that being said, expect to hear more news about Machado's plans in the very near future.

Congress asks FCC for emergency briefing on ending location data sales
The firm said it was looking into the situation and had stopped transmitting data to an aggregator while it investigated. But nobody quite dropped the ball like the carriers, which said they would not to share location data again.

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

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.

On the South Side, the White Sox have met with Harper twice, but remain a "longshot". The meeting with Harper might serve as an artificial deadline of sorts for Machado. Middleton told Skversky that the meeting was "really positive", and that they "got to understand what [Bryce] would be like for the clubhouse and community".

"I realize it's part of the business, but especially when you're talking about negotiations, which are understandably and purposely confidential and not something we conduct through the media, the amount of rumors out there can get frustrating".

It'll be interesting to see how the Yankees envision LeMahieu fitting in - and does his addition mean they're out of the Machado sweepstakes?
