Yankees have had zero press conferences
Yankees have been eerily quiet on #Harper and #Machado
Do Yankees have a death star move in them? Can they finish this off-season?
Machado is currently being pursued by the Phillies, White Sox, Padres and the Yankees -- to say nothing of potential "mystery teams" -- but he is not sufficiently satisfied with the offers that any of them have made to him thus far. The Yankees have been making moves in the off season but have yet to sign a big star to add to the Bronx Bomers.
"If we could get Manny (Machado), that would be awesome. Awesome. I would have to have him in our lineup and our clubhouse and around. But, it is what it is. I hope he signs. But if not, we'll keep going." — CC Sabathia on #R2C2 podcast w/ @RyanRuocco #Yankees— Brendan Kuty (@BrendanKutyNJ) January 10, 2019
