Aaron Judge: I’ll Change Positions To Make Bryce Harper A Yankee

Add the Giants to the mix in the never-ending courtship of Bryce Harper. Despite being that, he hasn't signed over the past several months since the end of the World Series in October. "If he goes to the Phillies, that's probably going to be the most money, but he'd like to be on the West Coast".

Reports have surfaced in recent days that Harper may be considering a shorter-term deal with the market just not playing out the way he and agent Scott Boras have hoped, but there is no real traction as to whether that is true or not.

Under new general manager Farhan Zaidi, though, this is a surprise.

With both of these high-caliber players asking for multi-year deals, teams need to have plenty of cap space to sign them. The Phillies and Nationals the teams that could give Harper what he wants.

The former National League MVP played seven seasons with the Nationals.

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.

Harper, also 26, has still yet to find a home since he declared his free agency after his 2018 season.

Bringing in Machado wouldn't be a bad move either, but to be honest, I don't want to hear anything about Machado until I first see a headline that reads, "Harper rejects $50 million offer to play in Philadelphia". (6:50) Is it still between the White Sox and Phillies for Machado? "Nolan Arenado's progress on a multi-year extension with the Rockies, which would remove him from next offseason's free-agent market if the deal gets completed, should remind the Yankees that a good plan today trumps a ideal plan for 270 tomorrows from now".
