"Any time you can add an MVP to a team, it's going to make them better", Judge said.
Sooner or later, Bryce Harper will need to finally choose which team he wants to play for during the 2019 season, as the Philadelphia Phillies would love nothing more than to be declared the winners of the sweepstakes to land the star outfielder.
This offseason we've spent a ton of time trying to figure out why your team will sign Bryce Harper, so let's take some time to explain why it won't. A recent report states that the Giants met with Harper, and are interested in signing him to a two or three-year deal. Judge started one game in center for the Yankees last season, but it doesn't seem as if he'll have to make that switch permanently so Harper can man right field in the Bronx.
And to give Phillies fans even more to dream about.
Just before getting honored at the Thurman Munson Awards in Manhattan on Tuesday evening, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said any similar scenario involving the two outfielders was now an unrealistic one. Although Yankees general manager Brian Cashman refuted such rumored interest in Harper during the Winter Meetings in December, he and other team officials did meet with Machado late that month.
A team initially believed to be high on Bryce Harper's list has re-emerged. Currently, New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton has the largest deal at $325 million, which he signed with the Miami Marlins.
"Obviously [Harper] is a great player".
Harper remains a free agent and is looking to command a lucrative, long-term deal that could reach $300 million over 10 years. Wherever they want to go.
