However, according to the report, the Dodgers aren't the only team sending local celebrities to woo Harper.

This winter's Major League Baseball free agency class has been talked about for a long time, mainly because of the presence of Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper.

Regardless of who was there, Harper's pursuit is problematic for the Dodgers. And that would only begin their countdown until Harper can opt out of what might be the biggest contract in the history of professional sports.

For what it's worth, Harper says nelly says "my guy'" growing up.

He pulled the ultimate coup by luring Lebron James to the Los Angeles Lakers this past summer to revitalize the moribund franchise. It's not entirely clear from the current version of the story whether the Dodgers have or will send a contingent to meet with Harper at all.

Bryce Harper is baseball's most eligible bachelor this offseason and will be courted as such. But others think Boras and his team might be thinking differently - that they don't want to risk Machado setting the market lower than they want it.
