Padres 'Very Aggressive' With Offer To Manny Machado

Padres 'Very Aggressive' With Offer To Manny Machado

Over the weekend, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported that the Giants are planning on offering Bryce Harper a "lucrative short-term deal," after the two sides left a four-hour meeting with mutual interest last week.

Major League Baseball insider Bob Nightengale believes it's become a two-team race for Harper, who has been linked to several different Major League Baseball franchises over the past couple of months.

There's also skepticism among some parties involved in the Giants-Harper conversation that San Francisco can generate the kind of offer the slugger is looking for, reports ESPN's Buster Olney.

Google upgrades Gmail right-click menu
Many features that land for G Suite customers are implemented for free users as well eventually, and usually in a short period. Gmail's right-click menu is not particularly useful at this point in time as it provides only a handful of options.

Bryce Harper apparently wants long-term job security.

"Right now I really do think it's the Giants and the Phillies".

The Washington Nationals and the Los Angeles Dodgers have been mentioned for Harper, too, though Nightengale believes they're out.

The Division 2 Open Beta Confirmed Via Twitch Livestream
Plus, if you didn't get a chance this past weekend, it means everyone can sample the game before it launches in March. The Division 2 private beta did not have the best weekend on Twitch , as far as viewer numbers are concerned.

San Francisco is coming off two of their worst seasons in a decade, but they improved to win 73 games past year.

On the flip side, San Francisco is a 90-minute flight to Harper's hometown of Las Vegas, and the lovely ballpark averaged 39,000 fans past year. According to Jon Heyman, however, that's not going to get it done. This isn't to say Harper won't be forced to take a short-term deal, though.

While SNY's Andy Martino reported Tuesday, citing sources, that NY remains in the hunt to sign Machado with spring training right around the corner, he also reported the Yankees are closely monitoring the situation of Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado as they prefer Arenado over Machado.

Black leopards are usually associated with dense forests where their dark colouration is thought to help them hide in the shadows. But a British wildlife photographer has become the first person to photograph the black leopard in more than a century.
