Phillies emerge as clear-cut favorite to land Harper

The Philadelphia Phillies, and not the Washington Nationals, have emerged as the clear-cut favorite to sign free-agent outfielder Bryce Harper after meeting with him for five hours Saturday in Vegas.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of ongoing negotiations, but the Phillies have become the most aggressive team in their pursuit for Harper while the Nationals’ interest appears to be waning. Nationals executives are now calling a reunion with Harper a “long shot.’’

The Phillies, who also have interest in signing free-agent infielder Manny Machado, have yet to make an official offer to Harper, but are confident they will sign at least one of the two free-agent megastars. They were strongly encouraged about their chances of signing Harper after meeting with him, his wife and agent Scott Boras in Harper’s hometown. It was their first face-to-face meeting, which included two slide-show presentations by the Phillies.

They are expected to make a formal offer within a week.

The Phillies, according to team executives, have visions of signing Harper, Keuchel and Kimbrel.

I may be in the minority, but I still wish the Yankees would sign him to play 1st base. They need a lefty bat in that line-up and the short right field porch in Yankee Stadium is made for him.

Getting all 3 is hard to believe considering all signs point to Trout in Philly in 2 years. He wants to go home and the Phillies want him. Talks of an extension with LAA broke down too so it is very possible.

I just can't imagine them having all 4 of those contracts.

Random dude on Twitter ...

"Would you please be able to confirm for Phillies nation if indeed there is any truth to the rumor that the Bryce Harper destination prop bets have been taken off of the board in Vegas? Your insight would be greatly appreciated"

Jeff Sherman at SuperBook ...
