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.

"Wherever he wants to play, wherever he wants to play-we'll make it work". This sparked a controversy among teams looking to sign Machado, but with such a generational talent, teams will probably overlook the statement, even though they will take it into consideration.

Nearly a full day before prominent baseball reporters caught on, a San Francisco Giants fan foresaw Bryce Harper meeting with his favorite team. After signing former Gold Glove award victor Troy Tulowitzki and DJ Lemahieu, the Yankees do not look like they will be signing Machado.
