Mets history with aging second basemen is not good.

That's the current mythology, yes.

If by mythology you mean history, you'd be correct.

Segura rumored to approve trade to Philly. Phil's still in on Machado and Harper.

No

They added Segura when they could NOT get Machado.

Probably should upgrade your sources. And your spell checker.

Sources?  The ones saying Phil's will try to convince Manny to play third?

Yeah.  That's what killed it.

If they were anywhere close with Manny Segura deal would have been put way back burner.

For the next 4 years it will be fun reminding Phil's fans they had no interest in surrendering prospects for Edwin Diaz.

Like I said. Get better sources.

...sources said the Phillies still want Machado, which NBC Sports Philadelphia first reported over the weekend.

Why? Well, because the Phillies love him, despite his 2018 postseason transgressions and "Johnny Hustle" comments. They think they can make a Machado-Segura infield work, too. Machado is a brilliant third baseman -- many believe he is much better at third base than shortstop -- so the Phillies could try to convince him to play there. Of course, he prefers shortstop, but perhaps a record-setting contract of $300 million or more can change his mind.

If Machado is dead-set on shortstop, the Phillies could move Segura to second base. Segura played the entire 2016 season there with the D-backs and enjoyed his best season, leading the National League with 203 hits and finishing 13th for NL MVP.

In that scenario, the Phillies would have to trade second baseman Cesar Hernandez. That would not be a problem, if it meant Machado or no Machado. Philadelphia might have tried to trade Hernandez this offseason anyway, because doing so would have allowed Scott Kingery to move back to his natural position. Instead, Kingery could return to the super-utility role the club envisioned before Crawford got hurt last season.

Harper makes more sense.  Not sure where Bryce is leaning now.

Cashman read the road wrong.  Without Stanton Harper would be perfect.

I think the Yankees are entering a not caring about money stage at this point.  And I see Harper as a perfect first baseman.
