Giants making late play for Harper

Giants making late play for Harper

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. "Asked by TMZ Sports in a brief red-carpet interview this week, (Aaron) Judge said any time a team can add a player of Harper's caliber, it "is going to make them better".

Machado has talked to the Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago White Sox and the New York Yankees, and also drawn interest from the San Diego Padres and Atlanta Braves. That is no different with San Francisco. Phillies owner John Middleton said in November that the club was prepared to spend "stupid money" this off-season.

Giancarlo Stanton also factors into the Yankees' outfield plans.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Dodgers have been connected to Harper on multiple occasions but not under the scope of a 10-year deal he may be seeking.

There have surely been discussions of other terms since then, but they have not floated out from behind closed doors.

James picks Durant first for All-Star game
Antetokounmpo is the captain of one team for the game as the top vote-getter among Eastern Conference players in fan balloting. But he had some fun with that moment. "And after that, I don't know". "I'm going with my buddy, Dwyane Wade".

That was before the supposed meeting at Lerner's house and when it was presumed some team would've met Harper's contract demands by now. Not for a former rookie of the year and MVP, a rare marketable baseball star who, by all indications, still has a prime to play through.

Even with Harper's market not playing out the way most people assumed it would, thinking someone could get him for $25 million or less AVA per season seems ludicrous.

Jon Heyman of MLB Network followed up by reporting that the Giants have actually been in the same room as the superstar outfielder. 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.

It doesn't feel like a logical destination for Harper.
