Giants making late play for Harper

  • Report: 8 teams checking in on Harper

The latest team to join the Bryce Harper sweepstakes is the San Francisco Giants, according to a multiple reports on Wednesday. "Wherever he wants to play, we'll make it work ..."

Many baseball fans and media personnel alike saw this tweet and took it to mean that Harper, the cover athlete for the game, would announce who he is signing with by simultaneously releasing the cover photo for the game depicting Harper in his team's new digs. Spring training is about to start, and Bryce Harper and Manny Machado still are unsigned. Although all 30 teams wish they could land a player with Harper's caliber, only a handful of teams have seriously been in contention to sign him: The LA Dodgers, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Yankees and Washington Nationals were said to have been big contenders.

Now it's no surprise that adding Harper would make the Giants a significantly better team, but how realistic is the possibility of the team signing him?

At the GM meetings, Boras heaped more praise on the Giants, saying, "They have a successful model", "and I always tell Larry (Baer), 'This fan base has rewarded you".

Fancred's Jon Heyman later confirmed the Giants are indeed are checking in on Harper and met with him earlier this week, but the extent of their pursuit is not yet known.

Giancarlo Stanton also factors into the Yankees' outfield plans.

The allure of playing in the Bay Area for a world-class organization appears to be something that has always attracted Harper, as these old tweets from 2013 and 2014 show. "Nolan Arenado's progress on a multi-year extension with the Rockies, which would remove him from next offseason's free-agent market if the deal gets completed, should remind the Yankees that a good plan today trumps a flawless plan for 270 tomorrows from now".

Harper, 26, is coming off a season where he slashed.249/.393/.496 with 34 home runs and a career-high 100 RBI. I am starting a petition for the other 28 teams in the Major League Baseball to offer this man a contract to keep him out of NY.

Drafted first overall by the Washington Nationals in 2010, Harper has finally reached free agency.
