MLB.com posted their rumors article a few hours ago and reported a rival GM expects Harper to the Friars and Machado to our Phightins. FWIW.

John Stolnis

Apparently the price for JT came down.


i forget who it was said they wanted bohm or haseley and phils didn't have to give them up

Why go to SF and hit 15 homers there? At best. Giants are not a good team.


MLB guys scoffed at the idea of Harper to the Giants on a shorter deal. Said he's dreamed his whole life of hitting 700 HRs and he wants to go somewhere to win championships and break records. SF is a bad hitting park and the Giants are an aging team with no farm system. The Reds are the only team in the NL that has more losses than the Giants the last two years. Why would Bryce waste the prime years of his career there during a rebuild? Maybe if they're offering him a 10-12 year deal, sure, but not on anything shorter-term.

He's gonna get more than 6/180 anyway. I'm guessing its around 8/288. Teams dont seem willing (publicly, at least) to go 10-12 years, so it will be tough to break the Stanton record, but this would still give him the highest annual average salary.
I hate signatures, but I love irony.

It was always going to be end of the week if it happened this week. Report was decision by end of the week, then someone said probably Thursday/Friday most likely. Need time to track flights.

True but stuff usually leaks out a day before anything is official.

I think that they (Bryce and Manny) want to go to the NBA All Star game this weekend which they can't do if they sign with someone and have to report to Spring Training tomorrow. I think that they are in Charlotte Thursday-Monday, sign on Tuesday and report to the team on Wednesday.

What if the Realmuto presser is just a cover?

Jon Heyman

Despite rumored offers/wishes of teams, word is Bryce Harper is not signing — or even considering — short-term deals.
