"Wherever he wants to play, we'll make it work ..."

If I would have told you at the beginning of this Major League Baseball offseason that, on February 6, we would still be discussing Bryce Harper rumors, you would have thought I was insane.

Fancred's Jon Heyman later confirmed the Giants are indeed are checking in on Harper and met with him earlier this week, but the extent of their pursuit is not yet known. "But I think it's safe to assume that we're going to spring training with the team that we expect to have", reports ESPN.

Without question, the addition of a talented player like Harper would take Philadelphia's chances to compete for a World Series title to a whole new level after looking at the impact made over the years as a member of the Washington Nationals. Interestingly enough, maybe. While surrounded by cacti and palm trees collectively, I have had time to soak in the atmosphere of west coast baseball, and reflect on the more recent resurgence of Bryce Harper's possible appearance in pinstripes this season.

New York Yankees right fielder and face of the franchise, Aaron Judge, says he would consider moving to another spot in the outfield if the team were to sign former NL MVP Bryce Harper, this according to TMZ Sports.

Sixers land forward Harris from Clippers in six-player trade
The Clippers are planning to pursue several All-NBA-caliber players, including Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard . Harris will move to the Wells Fargo Center as the centerpiece of a six-player, four-draft pick trade.

As the Harper saga drags on, it's allowed for several teams to remain part of the sweepstakes, with some hopeful to convince him of signing a short-term contract.

Giancarlo Stanton also factors into the Yankees' outfield plans. From what I heard, Harper is not thrilled with playing there. Last year, Harper asked for a $400 million dollar deal over 10 years. He was the National League's Most Valuable Player in 2015 when he posted career highs with 42 homers, a.460 on-base percentage and a.649 slugging percentage - all league-best totals.

Drafted first overall by the Washington Nationals in 2010, Harper has finally reached free agency.

That was before the supposed meeting at Lerner's house and when it was presumed some team would've met Harper's contract demands by now.
