There is a certain amount of burnout taking place among Philadelphia Phillies fans as they continue to wait on decisions from free agents Manny Machado and Bryce Harper.

Perhaps the meeting with the elder Lerner was simply a gesture of respect, though such a summit probably would not have included Boras and certainly wouldn't have lasted so long.

He said the action had been taken because the screw-up had "caused damage to the Huawei brand", which is hard to argue with. Huawei was embarrassed before when a "mobile spokesperson" blurted out a Huawei ad from their personal iPhone.

It can be assumed that Harper also has emotional ties to the Washington organization. Apparently, The 10-year $300m offer was actually just the team's 1st offer to Harper. "The annual average salary is what matters most".

Harper entered free agency on the heels of one of his worst seasons as a pro. I understand there are some warts with any free agent, and that's true with Harper and Machado, but it would be nuts to me if they wind up signing a seven-year deal, even at $30 million AAV. 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. There is a big difference between $160 million and $400 million dollars.

Phillies officials have planned a face-to-face meeting with Bryce Harper in his hometown of Las Vegas over "the next week or so", a person close to the player told Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia. 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.

Nightengale expanded on his initial tweet in a more detailed written piece and had a couple more nuggets to add, chiefly that the White Sox offer is "a serious offer, likely closer to $200 million than $300 million, but not enough to sway Machado to board a flight from Miami to Chicago for a press conference".

It doesn't appear like a signing will occur anytime soon, but now it appears that Harper might be staying in Washington, D.C. after all. TC Zencka at MLB Trade Rumors may have captured the essence with the final six words of his piece on Harper today: "the best we have is conjecture".
