When will Machado and Harper sign?

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

Pitchers and catchers report this week, but the top two free agents are still unsigned. The rumour mill has picked up again over the last couple of days (Giants interested in Harper, Yankees getting back into the bidding for Machado), which gives me the feeling that something is about to happen, but who knows these days.

I'm asking about the date in which both have signed, e.g. if Harper signs tomorrow and Machado on March 1st, then answer March 1st.

There are some overlapping days on those last three options. Oh well, do your best to choose anyway.

i figure once spring training is set to start one, or both will take the best deal on the table (Harper to Giants) (Machado, i dunno, fuck him).

Rosenthal in The Athletic says neither wants to sign first and "set the market."

Just voted February 24-March 1.

Can't believe the Giants are in the running for Harper.

apparently not? he said he doesn't want a short term deal, which is what i think they were going for.

i'm gonna be pessimistic and predict that at least one of them will sign after the season starts
