Oddsmakers Now Favor Giants To Sign Bryce Harper

Harper-Bryce-USNews-021019-ftr-getty

After reports of Harper meeting with the San Francisco Giants arose, USA Today's insider Bob Nightengale went on 680 KNBR in the Bay Area to talk about the potential pairing of Harper and San Francisco. They're also sensitive about their follower counts on social media.

An idea that recently gained steam on the Major League Baseball rumor mill was the Giants jumping into the Bryce Harper sweepstakes, but under the caveat that they would offer a short-term deal with a high average annual value.

Harper, the Washington Nationals MVP outfielder, is now the MLB's biggest free agent remaining as spring training opens up this week.

Heyman's report, combined with Nightengale's, point to one conclusion at the dawn of spring training: Harper will take his talents to Philadelphia. Where will he end up?

"I know a couple of us got the unfollow the other day, so I don't know if that's writing on the wall or what", wing Tom Wilson told reporters Monday of Harper, who rooted for his hometown Knights over the Capitals in the Stanley Cup.

Things seem to be lining up for the Phillies here, but man, it's taking an awfully long time.

Not everyone on the Caps got the Twitter kiss-off from Harper: Of the 24 accounts he still follows, one belongs to goalie Braden Holtby, so there's that. "So if he starts following Claude Giroux and Joe Thornton, we'll have problems?"

"I know he always keeps it pretty tight, but yeah, that'll be a hint for sure", Wilson said.
