Bryce Harper Rumors: Giants Make Push, Phillies Losing Confidence, Dodgers Remain Players

Giants CEO Larry Baer and team president Farhan Zaidi were on the second trip, this time without manager Bruce Bochy.

The Phillies, Dodgers and Giants are still in the hunt to sign Harper, who spent the first seven seasons of his career in Washington. That could mean they are more willing to spend big on Harper.

I, for one, am glad they censored themselves so I didn't have to.

The Phillies are second with 11/10 odds (bet $100 to win $110) followed by the San Francisco Giants, at 12/1 (bet $100 to win $1,200). While, say, a 10-year, $330M deal would still have Harper top Arenado's new number, Boras and Co. could be looking to top Zack Greinke ($34.3M) AAV now.

Smith also had 13 assists and Knox had 10 rebounds, while rookie Mitchell Robinson finished with 15 points and 14 rebounds. LaMarcus Aldridge scored 18 points, but was limited to just 13 minutes through 3 quarters because of foul trouble.

Los Angeles is reportedly hoping to ink Harper to a short-term contract.

Any offer will likely pay Harper at least $30 million per season. Entering the weekend, the Philadelphia Phillies were seen as heavy favorites to land the 26-year-old star. Along with Los Angeles and San Francisco, the Padres, White Sox, Phillies and Harper's original team, the Nationals, have all been named as suitors trying to land him.

It's interesting that Harper is seemingly put off by the Phillies' usage of analytics, given that the Dodgers also heavily rely on advanced metrics.
