Phillies need to 'grossly outbid' Giants to get Bryce Harper

  • MLB Insider Believes Bryce Harper Is Down To 2 Teams

The Phillies have money to spend, and most signs are pointing toward Philadelphia making Harper an offer that is close to 10 years.

The Philadelphia Phillies and the San Francisco Giants are the two teams Nightengale believes are still in it for Harper. However, it sounds like Nightengale thinks the Giants have the edge.

The question is, what under-the-radar teams still have a shot at Harper and Machado, and do they have enough talent to make a postseason run without those stars?

Nightengale also added that Harper's former team, the Washington Nationals "are definitely out of it". The Giants are hampered by large contracts handed out to pitchers Jeff Samardzija, Johnny Cueto, and Mark Melancon, who are owed a combined $140 million through the remainder of their contracts.

The latest turn in the Harper saga has the San Francisco Giants entering the fray at the 11th hour.

Teammates William Byron and Alex Bowman locked in the front row for the Daytona 500 earlier in the day in qualifying. So Johnson and Knaus remain close as they go through this transition together.

Nightengale said Harper's decision will ultimately come down to the all-mighty dollar. "It's a two-team race here", Nightengale told KNBR.

The Giants are reportedly interested in offering Harper a massive short-term contract, while the Phillies could give him the long-term deal he's seeking.

The White Sox signed Machado's friend Jon Jay and traded for his brother-in-law Yonder Alonso in hopes that he would follow them to the South Side.

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.
