    Will Bryce Harper find a team before spring training starts?

    I feel bad for the guy. Great ball player but still hasn’t found a home.

    He is too good to be still left out there in free agency.

    surely someone will sign him right?

    Maybe the Mariners? They could use a bat

    Why? It is not the players' fault, the owners are to blame. If they are willing to dish out 300 million for one player, of course anyone would try to get it. Wouldn't you? Wouldn't ANYONE?

    I don't see him or Machado getting the long deal

    Looks like owners are going to play it close to vest, rely on analytics and platooning players and wait to get a new CBA in place w restrictions or caps on this ridiculous money

    It's reached the breaking point. League is in decline, fans cannot afford the game, and only 4 teams now compete for best talent in game. The pairity factor is going to be in play in new contract w union, might be collusion going on right now to start it off

    Wouldn't be shocked to see either sign a 1 or 2 year deal worth 30mm/ yr

    The ten year deals are no longer easy slam dunks.

    Plus when you have half of the 30 teams that are not looking to win, the market goes way down. There are a handful of teams that could pay 25-30 mill per, with a competitive roster, and they simply wonít go ten years.

    Bryce Harper Asks If Phillies Willing To Move To Another City

    PHILADELPHIA—Sending a strong signal that the move could swing his decision on where to sign, free agent outfielder Bryce Harper asked Friday whether the Philadelphia Phillies would be willing to relocate to another city. “I’m a big fan of coach [Gabe] Kapler and the roster he’s assembled, but I’d love to see the Phillies make a big move to another city before I commit to playing for them,” said the 2015 National League MVP, adding that he’d even be willing to sign at a lower salary if it would help the team relocate to someplace warm like San Jose or Orlando. “I’m really trying to put myself in the best position and it feels like the Phillies have all the pieces in place, except for the city. Playing with Jake [Arrieta] and Andrew [McCutchen] would be great, but in the end I would still be stuck in Philadelphia. But if they’re able to guarantee they’ll build a new stadium and move the franchise to Omaha, I’ll sign tomorrow.” Harper added that he might be willing to play in Philly if the city traded away the majority of its citizens.

    Why in the world would he want to go there? They suck. They've only had one .500 season in the last eleven. He'd waste away out there.

    About the only reason I can think of, it's close to Vegas where he lives.

    The player Phillies fans are most excited to see this spring? He hasn't signed yet. Fans seem to prefer Harper over Machado. Some Harper-hungry fans purchased season-ticket plans a couple weeks ago following bogus reports that Harper had agreed to a deal.

    Rumors spreading that Harper will be a Phillie for 10 years and 310 million. Boras gets bailed out again by an owner. Still doesn’t beat Stanton, but will certainly beat Machado. Like saving half a face for the player and the agent.

    Players hate spring training. Both Harper and Machado are purposely delaying their decision in order to avoid having a full spring. I wouldn't be surprised if deals are already done with an understanding that they won't be inked right away (to avoid spring ball). These guys know what they are doing.

    @OP you should not feel bad for him. He has already had life changing offers. He is greedy. Name a player that has shown his worth of a 10 yr contract. No one. Itís a pure money grab. Owners are getting smart. Besides mike trout and a few others, top phenoms coming out each season are outperforming a lot of these expensive contract players.

    Machado and him in my opinion are also both assholes in character especially machado. This is coming from an orioles fan. I would not want either on my team, especially for north of 200M.
