Re: Yankees signing DJ Lemahieu as Manny Machado hopes fade

Anyone who listened to Cash from the beginning shouldn't be surprised by the little deals he's been putting together. Both Machado and Harper along with their money-grubbing agents were going for mega deals in length & $$$$$$. Each agent wants to get the biggest deal in history for his client - 10 years for in excess of $300 mil - there was no way the Yankees were going to endanger their budget for another extensive contract. This deal probably also precludes a deal with Gonzalez.
In a way I feel sorry for Bryce & Manny because of the egos of their agents - that ego is a big reason neither has signed and we're only month before training camps open. This is a case where greed is holding up any possible deal - owners are getting a little bit cost conscience on mega deals. Who will give in first Machado's agent, Harper's agent or an MLB owner???
