In poll form - what are your thoughts on the order of operations for the two big names?

They sign at exact same time.

I think the Phillies' FO favors Machado, but there seems to be more competition for him than Harper(SD actually concerns me more than CWS). I don't think there's any way Harper signs before Machado, because Boras wants to make sure he gets the bigger deal. So I think Manny signs elsewhere first, then Harper signs here.

I won't be mad if I'm wrong, though, if we get both.

But accidentally sign the wrong contract and a Freaky Friday situation ensues.
Quick Google shows that GoGo is wrong with regards to the Kiwi and the Banana.

I don't think Manny cares but I think Mrs. Machado doesn't love Philly... he goes to the White Sox likely or to the Yankees on a short term deal... Harper comes here for big money shortly after ... we sign Moustakas, even though most won't like it and also sign Kimbrel... we trade Franco for more than we thought, possibly in a package to Arizona for Robbie Ray...

Opening Day

Hernandez
Segura
Harper
Hoskins
Moustakas
McCutchen
Herrera
Alfaro
Nola

Reserves

Knapp or Vet C, Kingery, Valentin, Quinn, Lane Adams or Altherr

Pitchers

Nola, Arrieta, Ray, Pivetta, Eflin

Bullpen

Kimbrel, Robertson, Dominguez, Pazos, Neris, Neshek, Hunter, LHP, possibly Arano or Ramos if Neshek or Hunter traded

Williams, Franco, Velasquez traded

i decided to place my faith in shore and klentak and took the first option.
shore says we will get both.
klentak seems to me clearly to be trying his best to leverage his way into getting both by having the biggest offer on the table for each, warning both that the offer won't grow if the first one to choose signs elsewhere, and also warning both that the offer may shrink substantially (while still being the best offer) if the first one to choose signs with the phils.

manny seems to be the guy desperate to sign elsewhere. if bryce chooses first and goes elsewhere, the phils offer to manny (hopefully) is far enough above the rest that he'll be taking a huge paycut to go anywhere else.
if bryce chooses first and becoms a phil, the offer to manny will drop so that he will be giving up less money signing elsewhere ... but he'll putting himself further away from playing in the postseason than he would be if he joined harper on the phils.
BRING HOME THE GOAT!

Like the end of a Hell's Kitchen season:

Both go to doors outside of CBP, they try the doors, both doors are locked, they limo out to the airport.
