San Francisco is back in the mix for still unsigned former MVP Bryce Harper, according to a report by Randy Miller of NJ Advanced Media.

With every argument made for a team to sign Harper - starting with his age and status as one of baseball's most feared hitters - there seems to be at least one counterpoint.

Bob Nightengale wrote in mid-January that the Phils were the "clear-cut" favourite to land Harper. "Wherever he wants to play". Harper is obviously a special case, and the Giants' weak outfield meant they were considered a contender for the former National in the past.

Now going over the tax would not be the end of the world for San Francisco, the team that does have starter Madison Bumgarner's deal coming off the books next season, and a $6.5 million club option on lefty Derek Holland.

Despite the objections of some advisers, Mr Trump announced in December that he was withdrawing U.S. forces in Syria. The White House tonight announced several special guests attending the State of the Union at the Capitol tomorrow.

But the optimism was also tempered by annoyance and exasperation from fans desperate for Harper to put his name on a contract and just play ball.

While it's unclear if contract terms were discussed with Harper, it's hard to envision the Giants being in position to sign him to a long-term deal. If, however, the interest is honest, we're up to five known parties - the Nationals, Phillies, and White Sox are the others - with at least one more on the periphery.

Bryce Harper #34 of the Washington Nationals looks on from the dugout during a game against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium on August 16, 2018 in St. Louis, Missouri. It seems very unlikely the Giants would be willing to offer Harper an eight- to 10-year long-term deal but seem they would be more in the neighborhood of a three- to five-year deal. The Philadelphia Phillies reportedly are the favorite to sign the 26-year-old.
