Scratch Manny Machado off your list of players you thought were being left out of the MLB free agency circus. He has signed and sealed a deal for 10 years at a massive 300 million dollars with the San Diego Padres so all that's left is Bryce Harper. MLB Insider, Jon Morosi joins The Jason Smith Show with Mike Harmon to discuss when Bryce Harper could get signed and which team could potentially take him.
Here's Morosi on when Harper could be signed:
The reality is we know of the rivalry between the agents of Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. That's kind of a big subplot of this part of the season. I am on record as saying: When is the Harper story gonna break? Well...it's gonna break about 3 minutes before the Manny Machado Press Conference begins.
Morosi on what team could sign Harper:
I think it's gonna be the Phillies...They, I believe, Are gonna have the biggest offer and they can also give Harper something that the San Francisco Giants can't which is an opportunity to win right now.
