  • Bryce Harper's post-Super Bowl tweet met with excitement, exasperation

Spring training is nearly upon us and Bryce Harper is still a free agent in Major league Baseball. Harper, 26, is a six-time All-Star and former National League MVP for the Washington Nationals. While his exact contract demands remain unknown, it is widely believed he is looking for something in the neighbourhood of Giancarlo Stanton's 13-year, $325 million deal signed with the Miami Marlins in 2014.

It is believed that Harper would sign the richest deal in Major League Baseball history.

Harper batted.249 with 34 home runs and 100 RBIs in 2018.

"Obviously [Harper] is a great player".

But, what made things awkward here is the team traded the man while he was still on the freaking hardwood for them . Barnes was in his third Mavericks season and had been one of Dallas' top two scorers each year.

Miller adds that the Giants will meet with Harper this week, joining the race to sign the former MVP alongside Chicago White Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, San Diego Padres and Washington Nationals.

One of those players is Aaron Judge of the Yankees.

NY has had an active offseason and the second-year manager thinks the team's roster "is pretty much set" heading into the start of camp later this month.

Aaron Boone isn't expecting the Yankees to make any more moves before spring training. Even still, both infielders contended they would have had little concern about that if Machado had come to the Bronx. Either way, this is big news for all the teams interested in the slugging outfielder, and another sign that this lengthy offseason saga is a long way off finishing. "Nolan Arenado's progress on a multi-year extension with the Rockies, which would remove him from next offseason's free-agent market if the deal gets completed, should remind the Yankees that a good plan today trumps a ideal plan for 270 tomorrows from now". "Make the right choice". "So, it just all depends on where he wants to go".
