I think both these guys will be signed this week or next. Let's get some predictions going.

I think the race on Harper is between the Giants and Phillies right now. Harper is from Vegas, not far from SF. I also think the Giants are capable of throwing more money at him than the Phillies (and will). However, the Giants want a shorter contract. He has to think about a possible decline and his projected value 3 or 4 years from now. I think he takes the long term deal with the Phillies making them a top NL competitor.

Machado is simpler. The Yankees have shown moderate interest, it's where Machado wants to be. If there's one thing the Yankees put 110% effort into every season, it's #Winning. They sign him to a shorter deal. 4 years tops.
EDIT: White Sox would be my second choice.

From Andy Martino of SportsNet NY
I don't know him. Or even use Twitter for that matter. Just something I came across.

Told that Padres have been very aggressive with offer to Machado but he doesn’t know if he wants to go there. Some in his camp pushing for shorter term deal with Yankees. Phillies, White Sox also big on him, as you surely know.

Some new news. Looks like Philly might be out on both.

Report: Padres GM meets with Manny in Miami
Feb. 14: After SNY's Andy Martino reported Tuesday that the Padres were being "very aggressive" with their offer to Manny Machado, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune followed up Thursday to note that general manager A.J. Preller actually flew to Miami to meet with Machado and his wife sometime in the past week.

Meanwhile, Phillies general manager Matt Klentak indicated Thursday that he is still monitoring the free-agent market but feels like the team accomplished its offseason goals by adding Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura, J.T. Realmuto and David Robertson.

Bryce Harper tagged Rhys Hoskins in a social media post yesterday, now Philly fans appear to be convinced that was a hint of where he was signing. I'm not solely convinced by that, but it does suggest he's been spending time with players on the Phillies roster and perhaps befriended Hoskins already.

Machado to the Padres sounds official.

10 years, $300M. Opt out after year 5.

San Diego is looking like a serious contender in a year or two as their prospects graduate.

Their prospect pool is crazy. Them and the White Sox.

So Manny will probably stay at third while Tatis is at SS?

I would think so. Hosmer, Urias, Tatis, and now Machado around the infield. Myers, Reyes, Margot in the OF.

There is talk of Tatis moving to 3rd like his dad played.

Really? That is interesting. Will have to check that out later. I totally think Manny at third and Tatis at short is the better option.
