Could Bryce Harper be a fit for the Red Sox?

The Dodgers offered Puig in a trade, according to a person with knowledge of the situation, but the two sides could not strike a deal.

The Nationals offered Harper a 10-year, $300 million contract with no opt-outs on September 26, which the outfielder turned down. But for now, the Nationals made an offer that maintained a solid relationship with Harper while giving him what the team saw as fair market value.

Regardless of what the New York Yankees say during the early parts of this offseason, they will continuously be linked to free-agent megastar Bryce Harper.

Of course, this won't come without a hefty investment considering Harper reportedly declined a massive deal from the Nationals before becoming a free agent.

"Because the player is entering the prime of his career you're really talking about a unique and rare opportunity", Boras said. They can not wait for Harper to make his decision - which many in the industry believe will come no sooner than the Winter Meetings in Las Vegas next month - and miss out on the market. "It's not happening. He's not going to be a Yankee", the source said. Though the Nationals weren't able to save their season after the All-Star Break, Harper played at an MVP caliber following the midsummer classic, slashing.300/.434/.538 with 11 home runs, 46 RBIs and 52 walks in the second-half of the 2018 season. "He has done a lot in the game already, and he is just scratching the surface". "But I'm uncomfortable with the statement that we're a better team without him". It's not hard to see why Phillies managing partner John Middleton, along with general manager Matt Klentak and president Andy MacPhail, would be willing to issue a historic contract to Harper to play his home games at hitter-friendly Citizens Bank Park. His clients include Nationals pitchers Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg, and former Nats outfielder Jayson Werth.
