8 teams checking in on Harper

Aaron Judge is willing to take one for the team if it means landing Bryce Harper.

"Anytime you can add an MVP to a team, it's going to make them better", Judge explained. But if the Yankees' front office decides to spend more this offseason, the team could get behind Judge's philosophy and find a way to make it work with Harper in the Bronx. I want to caution here that I don't make a habit of putting much faith in Phillips' reports, not to mention he's basing this latest bit on "feel". Clint Frazier and Jacoby Ellsbury are also outfield options off the bench.

As for Harper, the 26-year-old has played 184 games in center field at the major league level, with 63 of those happening last year.

While it's unclear if contract terms were discussed with Harper, it's hard to envision the Giants being in position to sign him to a long-term deal.

Little did it matter that Messi had just struck two goals to lead Barcelona back from a two-goal deficit to secure a 2-2 draw. Real Madrid have a demanding month ahead of them with matches in LaLiga , the Champions League and the Copa del Rey .

Infielder Manny Machado and outfielder Bryce Harper have yet to agree to a deal.

Teams like the Giants that didn't meet with Harper earlier this offseason are likely not among the top contenders to land the superstar.

"Obviously [Harper] is a great player". "Obviously things happen that force Brian and his staff to pivot on certain things".

"Well, I don't think that scenario is a realistic one for us at this point", Boone said.

When you have a back four who don't change it's maybe a bit easier, but we have enough quality to fill it. Previous year we won at Crystal Palace 2-1 with two offensive situations pretty much.

In the meantime, we sit and wait for any sign of action.

The total worth of Harper's next contract will largely be determined by its length, but the six-time All-Star is expected to ink a deal worth at least $31 million per year, according to Spotrac.

The way Boone sees it, this team already appears to be in its best form, even without Harper or Machado in the mix. Wherever they want to go.
