Manny Machado riles up Internet with now-deleted Instagram post with White Sox baby shoes originally appeared on nbcsportswashington.com
The waiting game continues for the two biggest names on MLB's free agent market.
And just like Bryce Harper trying to foreshadow his future team, Manny Machado sent the internet into a frenzy with a post to his Instagram story.
The image was grabbed by @Cut4 before the photo was deleted less than two hours after posting.
Why else would the highly valued free agent post these images of Chicago White Sox baby shoes, then delete?
The White Sox are a team that has consistently been linked to the infielder all offseason. Perhaps they finally struck a deal or Machado is just showing which way he's leaning.
Or it is just a pair of shoes that could be for his brother-in-law, Yonder Alonso (who plays for the White Sox as No. 17) and Machado is toying with us all.
This offseason is crazy and Twitter responded appropriately.

Harper of course alluded to a big reveal with MLB's The Show - nothing happened. He's still unsigned.
At the end of the day this means absolutely nothing. Or it means everything. No one knows in this free agency.
Oh, and pitchers and catchers report this week.
