The Manny Machado Sweepstakes has only three teams in serious contention at the moment and none of them have offered him the $300 million contract he’s seeking. The Phillies, White Sox and Yankees have all met with the high profile free agent since the season ended.
Only Philadelphia and Chicago have given him formal offers. New York, his preferred destination, has yet to make an offer.
Word is, Machado camp still seeking 300M plus. ChiSox, Phillies not believed to be close to that ask (though exact current offers aren’t known, and can change). Meanwhile, Yanks, believed to be preferred destination, have yet to make official offer. Still no word of mystery team.

It looks like someone might have overestimated their value. Whoops. Machado might want to re-evaluate the type of contract he can expect to land this off-season.
