Oddsmakers Now Favor Giants To Sign Bryce Harper

Bryce Harper Washington Nationals

We're at the start of spring training, and Bryce Harper remains without a team.

"Right now I really do think it's the Giants and the Phillies". But one reporter suggested to Wilson that everyone keep track to make sure Harper doesn't start following any stars from the Philadelphia Flyers or San Jose Sharks: "So if he starts following Claude Giroux and Joe Thornton, we'll have problems?"

San Francisco is coming off two of their worst seasons in a decade, but they improved to win 73 games a year ago.

Bryce Harper #34 of the Washington Nationals hits a solo home run in the ninth inning against the San Francisco Giants during Game Three of the National League Division Series at AT&T Park on October 6, 2014 in San Francisco, California.

Nightengale said Harper's decision will ultimately come down to the all-mighty dollar.


"With the Giants moving in and all the optimism, I do believe it's a coin flip", Nightengale told KNBR.

The Giants are reportedly interested in offering Harper a massive short-term contract, while the Phillies could give him the long-term deal he's seeking.

"I think if it's close he goes to San Francisco, if there's a huge gap, it's tough to walk away from that kind of money".

The free-agent outfielder won't consider signing a short-term contract in free agency, MLB Network's Jon Heyman reported Tuesday via Twitter. Or the Giants, Phillies, White Sox or Padres. That could throw a wrench in San Francisco's bid to acquire Harper, as new VP of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi has shown little enthusiasm at the prospect of breaking the bank for one player this offseason, with so many holes on both the Giants' big-league roster, and farm system.
