Los Angeles Dodgers reportedly back in the mix for Bryce Harper

Philadelphia Phillies fans might want to hold off on pre-ordering their Bryce Harper jerseys.

This entire process has been a tough one to trust, and there is a multitude of parties you can blame, but everyone bickering about it would do the same thing, and that's to try and maximize their earnings when it might be their only shot to get a contract of this magnitude. The Phillies are still seen as the favorite, but the Los Angeles Dodgers have apparently re-entered the picture.

If Harper wants to win a World Series, rather than receive a megadeal, he'll certainly have to consider this offer, given that the Dodgers have played in the Fall Classic in back-to-back seasons, and they're still loaded with talent to possibly return again.


Los Angeles met with the free-agent star this weekend in Las Vegas, MLB.com first reported, and is trying to sell a shorter-term deal to the outfielder, who just watched his on-the-market challenger, Manny Machado, accept a 10-year, $300 million deal from the Padres.

Harper is seeking a long-term deal and, despite being unsigned just over a month before the start of the season, has given no indication that he is willing to change that demand, sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan. The Phillies are prepared to sign Harper to a lucrative long-term contract.

With the Los Angeles Dodgers re-entering the bidding war, I do not see much changing for other teams like the Phillies except possibly getting too antsy, and ownership is exhausted of this game, so they want to get a deal done, but other than that the Phillies seem to be the only team that will be willing to meet Harper's price along with giving him the long term deal. Going all offseason with these expectations just to sign a short-term deal with the Dodgers doesn't seem like something that super-agent Scott Boras would do. Pollock and Cody Bellinger. Despite the low averge, he still hit 34 home runs, drove in a career-high 100 runs and walked a career-high 130 times.
