Giants making late play to join Bryce Harper sweepstakes

Miami Marlins v Washington Nationals

Harper calls Las Vegas his home and in this part of the country, where deserts and mountains are plentiful, the whispers of him actualizing his dream to play in NY could come true.

From Harper's perspective, the outfielder's next destination should be a team with a legitimate shot to compete for a World Series title, which means if he were to compare the Phillies and Padres, this would be a no brainer. Per ESPN, the gathering occurred Tuesday in Las Vegas.

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.

"It's going to come down to money", Miller said, via Taylor Wirth of KNBR. Well, Middleton, your front office has been stupid all right: stupid not to open the checkbook! San Francisco still has some players who are not ready for arbitration and non-guaranteed contracts, and these salaries are estimated to be around $9 million dollars total.




"As the market evolves, there might be guys that you had kind of questioned or doubted the feasibility of at one point that you now circled back on", Zaidi said last month. Many of those same teams have been reported as being interested in free agency's other big name, Manny Machado. With baseball viewership down and the Phillies attendance numbers in a dismal state, Harper is the savior Philadelphia has been waiting for. The Phillies and Nationals seem to be the most serious contenders for the four-time All-Star. His lifetime batting average is.279 and in addition to winning the Home Run Derby previous year, Harper also has 184 homeruns in his career. The Washington Nationals outfielder is one of the most sought after free agents, but it comes with a price.

Bringing in Machado wouldn't be a bad move either, but to be honest, I don't want to hear anything about Machado until I first see a headline that reads, "Harper rejects $50 million offer to play in Philadelphia".

There has been some debate as to whether or not the Nationals are still willing to give Harper a massive, 10-year deal.
