Aaron Judge: I'll switch positions to make Bryce Harper a Yankee

Former Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper hits an RBI double against the New York Mets

Former Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper hits an RBI double against the New York Mets

One of the teams that have been rumored to potentially make a run at Harper is the New York Yankees who are already stacked with power hitters like Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton.

But the optimism was also tempered by annoyance and exasperation from fans desperate for Harper to put his name on a contract and just play ball. "Especially when you have a great core of players that they certainly have and you know are going to come through in some regard but they made a pretty big splash with [Nathan] Eovaldi early and bringing back the World Series MVP [Steve Pearce], so they have done some things". Our franchise cornerstone saying "I will do whatever I need to do to make sure we add that huge bat in our lineup". The Washington Nationals outfielder is one of the most sought after free agents, but it comes with a price.

Chinese satellite captures moon and Earth like you've never seen them
In January the Chang'e-4 successfully touched down on the far side of the Moon - the side that's always facing away from Earth. The photo was taken with a camera linked to an amateur radio transceiver on board the Chinese DSLWP-B/Longjiang-2 satellite.

Harper remains a free agent and is looking to command a lucrative, long-term deal that could reach $300 million over 10 years.

As Heyman notes, it's getting late out there, and the Phillies still haven't gotten something done with Machado or Harper. What I have not, and will not accept is the thought of Bryce Harper as a Yankee.
