Yankees To Machado On Stanton-Level Contract Needs: 'Good Luck With That'

Apparently, the lock of "perfect potential Yankee" Manny Machado going to the Bronx is not so inevitable after all. A series of reports have suggested that Machado is demanding Giancarlo Stanton-level money in his negotiations with The Evil Ones—and that is creating an impasse. One source within The Concrete Bunker On 161st Street put is thusly to the New York Daily News, "Good luck with that". Some reports have Machado asking for deals that produce an average annual value in excess of $31 million. Still other reports suggest that, while the Yankees might technically still be in the running (even though they haven't even made Machado an offer), the only teams left in the hunt are the White Sox and Phillies. Further rumors indicate that both the Machado and Bryce Harper deals are about to 'pop' very soon—as early as this week. Stay tuned!
