Oddsmakers Now Favor Giants To Sign Bryce Harper

Phillies youngsters will dictate how much they have improved | Bob Brookover

The Phillies have always been interested in inking Harper to a massive contract, bu the Giants are a relative newcomer to the race.

It may seem like Bryce Harper has been a free agent for the better part of a decade, but the reality is that it's only been a few months.

No one should be surprised that Harper is closing in on a decision. The Washington Nationals, who were the only team to have made an offer close to the player's demands - a 10-year $300 million offer - were said to be out of the running after they were rejected by their former player.

The Philadelphia Phillies and the San Francisco Giants are the two teams Nightengale believes are still in it for Harper. Jon Heyman of Fan Cred Sports posted it to Twitter.

Weddings, funerals, schools and hospitals, as well as water and electricity plants, have been targeted, killing and wounding thousands.

The San Francisco Giants are now the favorite to sign Bryce Harper, according to oddsmakers. Bonds meant so much to the Giants back then, and (Harper) wants to be that guy now. Probably $30 million a year or so, or probably more even, to try to get him.

The Phillies have been linked to both Harper and Machado the most of any teams, which is the main reason they are right on the cusp of jumping into the title mix among the top four.

Boston knocked out NY 3-1 in last year's American League Division Series before beating the Houston Astros 4-1 in the AL Championship Series and the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1 in the World Series.

"The big thing (for the Giants) I think is proximity".
