REPORT White Sox Trying To Sign A Starting Pitcher By Aldo Soto- Feb 2 2019 4362

Members of the Giants' front office met with Bryce Harper this week in Las Vegas, multiple sources told NBC Sports Bay Area on Wednesday.

San Francisco is the latest team to join the Harper fray, following the Padres, while the Yankees remain disinterested despite Aaron Judge's willingness to get Harper fitted for pinstripes.

What happens from here with Harper and Machado is the biggest story in baseball entering spring training.

This offseason we've spent a ton of time trying to figure out why your team will sign Bryce Harper, so let's take some time to explain why it won't.

With every argument made for a team to sign Harper - starting with his age and status as one of baseball's most feared hitters - there seems to be at least one counterpoint.

In the grand scheme of things, San Francisco seems like a destination that would be a flawless fit for Harper. He was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers this past season where the Dodgers were the World Series runners up for the second year in a row. But the Giants have an aging core, and a bulk of their payroll is committed to bloated contracts.

Unai Emery urges Arsenal to improve away form amid criticism
We are strong at home but we need to do better away. "One month ago we were in the same situation but it's not easy. Hence, a chance to finish in the top four is not out of sight for the North London side.

After struggling the last two seasons, managing just 73 wins in 2018 and 64 in 2017, the Giants may not be considered a strong fit for Harper, who is looking to play for a pennant contender. Nor the White Sox. The left-handed outfielder has been one of the most exciting players in the game for a few years now and stands to make quite a bit of money with whatever team he ends up with.

Giancarlo Stanton also factors into the Yankees' outfield plans. That was sometime around October 29. But not this time. That same morning, a friend of mine at work said he heard someone on 94 WISP call in and say that Nick Foles had sold his house to Harper over the weekend. 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.

Fancred's Jon Heyman later confirmed the Giants are indeed are checking in on Harper and met with him earlier this week, but the extent of their pursuit is not yet known.

It doesn't feel like a logical destination for Harper.

"If he comes over, he makes the team better", Gregorius said.
