How much will it take to get Harper, Machado to South Side?

How will Bryce Harper and Manny Machado affect the fortunes of their new clubs?

An industry source told Levine that reports of the White Sox offering ten-plus years to Machado or Harper are "without any substance and flat out wrong". Nightengale's details followed Wednesday's contradictory reports from ESPN's Jeff Passan and The Score's Bruce Levine, the former saying the White Sox were willing to guarantee a 10-year deal to Harper and the latter saying the White Sox wouldn't go past seven years with either Harper or Machado.

The Los Angeles Dodgers, the Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago White Sox were touted as the three main contenders for his signature, but there seems to be many other franchises that also keeping an eye on the situation.

Sports columnist and MLB Network Insider Bob Nightengale has come out via Twitter to deliver some pretty big-time news regarding the White Sox and another prized free agent, Manny Machado. The deal on the table was said to be a long-term contract, but worth around $200 million and not the $300 million offer the shortstop was targeting.

With Robertson now in the fold, it gives the Phillies a potential closer and more stability towards the backend of the bullpen. Over the last three seasons the 33-year-old has tossed 200 innings with a 2.83 ERA.

They said there was also preliminary information that the man was mentally ill but he had no prior police record. He then drove into the city centre, where he slammed his silver Mercedes into a crowd, injuring four.

If Chicago isn't willing to go seven-plus years, they'll likely sit back and wait for free agency in 2020.

What interests Bryce Harper more, winning or more years on a contract? It will be interesting to see whether or not the Sox land him, knowing that they have also been "all-in" on Harper as well. On the last day of the regular season, the team reportedly made a 10-year $300 million offer and seemed unwilling to budge from that valuation. The Nationals are the only team known to have made a formal offer, according to Janes.

Just because the Phillies appear to be getting a meeting with Harper doesn't necessarily mean their chances of landing the star outfield are going to increase because once again, the competition is high between other teams as well.

With plenty of suitors, and maybe even some lurking in the shadows, here are the top five potential destinations midway through the offseason as Spring Training approaches next month.
