With pitchers and catchers across the league reporting for Spring Training in less than one week, Bryce Harper and Manny Machado shockingly remain available on the free-agent market. With the 26-year-old still seeking a contract that's to his liking, the number of teams with a real chance to sign the star player might have tripled.
The fact that San Diego only won 66 games previous year shows how much of a work in progress they are heading into the 2019 season, and while the team has a few key players like Will Myers to work with, the addition of someone like Harper certainly wouldn't solve all their problems. If he wants to set records, the biggest deal in baseball history was Giancarlo Stanton's $325 million extension, and Zack Greinke has the highest annual average value ever at more than $34 million.

"I want everybody", Boone said when asked if he wanted Harper.
At the GM meetings, Boras heaped more praise on the Giants, saying, "They have a successful model", "and I always tell Larry (Baer), 'This fan base has rewarded you". The Washington Nationals are said to be interested in bringing Harper back, but thus far, no real progress has been made for the former MVP.
It's been well over four months since the Washington Nationals first presented Bryce Harper with their reported 10-year, $300 million offer. I was disappointed when the 76ers weren't able to persuade Lebron to come to Philly over Los Angeles, but I will be devastated if I don't see Harper in red and white pin stripes come this April. I am starting a petition for the other 28 teams in the Major League Baseball to offer this man a contract to keep him out of NY.
