Cudeyro made his pitch, it was then the Phillies' turn to make theirs.
Machado, as one would expect, was vague when approached by the Philadelphia media and asked about his at Citizens Bank Park, telling reporters that the experience was "pretty awesome" and that he "learned a lot about the organization".
According to Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports, the Phillies are taking Machado to dinner in the hopes of potentially wooing the coveted shortstop. His responses to the questions he did answer were kept short and sweet.
North Korea condemns Washington sanctions, warns to block denuclearization
Since then, North Korea has been demanding sanctions relief and has condemned United States insistence on its nuclear disarmament. Washington also designated Pak Kwang Ho, whom the USA said is the director of North Korea's Propaganda and Agitation Department.
"I'm not a huge fan, said Sean McGrannaghan". "That's my agent's job".
Manny Machado was welcomed to Philadelphia during his trip to meet with the Phillies. Meanwhile, the Yankees should be prepared if Machado does decide to play for the White Sox or the Phillies, so their offseason does not ride on Machado's decision.
The Phillies and owner John Middleton are a definite threat to blow the Yankees' offer out of the proverbial water. Machado's follow of Segura is intriguing; he has long expressed his interest to play shortstop, however the Phillies acquired Segura to play the position while trading away their former top prospect (of the same position) to land him, J.P. Crawford.
That could mean a contract worth at least $300 million over 10 years. Additionally, after re-signing J.A. Happ, the Yankees can still use another top line starter by going after free agent Dallas Keuchel or going into the trade market target aces like Madison Bumgarner or Corey Kluber. After meeting with Machado Thursday, Philadelphia might very well make him an offer he can't refuse.
