Don't dismiss Giants in Bryce Harper sweepstakes

REPORT White Sox Trying To Sign A Starting Pitcher

The teams interested in the 26-year-old, based on media reports and people with knowledge of the situation, look to be the Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago White Sox, Washington Nationals, San Diego Padres and the Giants, as of this week. But if the Yankees' front office decides to spend more this offseason, the team could get behind Judge's philosophy and find a way to make it work with Harper in the Bronx.

"Any time you can add an MVP to a team, it's going to make it better", Judge said.

The Yankees have a pretty set outfield between Judge, Aaron Hicks at center and Brett Gardner in left.

With pitchers and catchers reporting to spring camps in less than a week, the San Francisco Giants are making a late play for Bryce Harper, a source told NJ.com's Randy Miller. I think that he was just probably pressed in the corner at the Super Bowl and he gave a good answer. Currently, New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton has the largest deal at $325 million, which he signed with the Miami Marlins.

Federal prosecutors subpoena records from Trump inaugural committee
Cohen's home, office and hotel room, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents obtained a recorded conversation between Mr. Prosecutors are also examining whether any foreigners made illegal payments to the committee, the newspapers reported.

With every argument made for a team to sign Harper - starting with his age and status as one of baseball's most feared hitters - there seems to be at least one counterpoint.

The San Francisco Giants have entered into the mix in the Bryce Harper sweepstakes.

"Obviously [Harper] is a great player". If the Phillies don't land a superstar after the ceaseless speculation dating back to last July, I won't pay to see a single game at Citizens Bank Park in 2019. Last year, Harper asked for a $400 million dollar deal over 10 years. "Obviously things happen that force Brian and his staff to pivot on certain things". There have been rumors that the offer might've increased during the offseason, and the outfielder reportedly met with team owner Ted Lerner for a few hours before Christmas.

"If he comes over, he makes the team better", Gregorius said. Wherever they want to go.
