Phillies need to 'grossly outbid' Giants to get Bryce Harper

MLB Rumors: Yankees Prefer Nolan Arenado Over Manny Machado In Third Base Search

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.

Harper, the Washington Nationals MVP outfielder, is now the MLB's biggest free agent remaining as spring training opens up this week.

As the Phillies report to Clearwater for Spring Training, latest Phillies rumors circling the club continue to focus on Bryce Harper.

Despite the wishes of some teams - the San Francisco Giants reportedly plan to offer Harper a lucrative short-term deal - free agency's biggest available star won't even consider signing that type of contract, according to MLB Network's Jon Heyman.

The Washington Nationals and the Los Angeles Dodgers have been mentioned for Harper, too, though Nightengale believes they're out. Where will he end up?

China hopeful of trade war breakthrough
China's foreign ministry struck a confident tone yesterday as a junior delegation of American negotiators arrived in Beijing . In late September, the USS Decatur also sailed within 12 nautical miles of Gaven and Johnson reefs in the Spratly Islands.

Things seem to be lining up for the Phillies here, but man, it's taking an awfully long time. "I know he kind of jumped the Caps ship with the Vegas bandwagon there with where he's from, but it's always been fun, and I'm sure he's going to make the best decision for him and his family and his future".

A reporter had a followup.

We don't know why Harper chose now to unfollow Capitals players, but at least he didn't start following the Flyers or Sharks.

On Twitter, Harper's follow count went down to 24. Braden Holtby is the only Capitals player that he still follows.

"I know he always keeps it pretty tight, but yeah, that'll be a hint for sure", Wilson said.
