The Phillies might outbid everyone else

I highly doubt they will get both, but I think their offer might be well above those of the player's preferred destinations.

The Yankees don't need right-handed power in the lineup. They can be very patient with Machado and even give him a lowball offer, relatively speaking.

I've always thought that Harper's choice would be the Dodgers, but they don't really seem to be in the sweepstakes.

I'll be curious to see if one or both takes short deal with high average value, and then go back into the free agent pool in two or three years.
