    I would have said Phillies....right up until the Dodgers unloaded Puig/Kemp. That all but assures that they will be making a BIG run at him.

    I think he will end up with the Yankees. Even though George is gone they seem to like landing these big names. And he would be nearly perfect for Yankee Stadium.

    The only way I see this happening is if they trade Stanton to the Dodgers.
    An outfield of Stanton/Harper/Judge doesn’t seem to be likely.
    Limiting my trading for now.

    Never gave it much thought but if they destroy their budget and sign him, they could put Mookie or Benintendi in center and put Harper in a corner position. Sure JBJ would be traded or kept on as a fourth outfielder. Nice dream but it will not happen.

    For both NY & Boston, he could end up playing 1st base? There are worse things in the world to have than Martinez or Stanton as your DH's.....

    I would still lean towards the Dodgers or Phillies - but the options are there to not mess up the two big boys lineups.

    I don't see him going to the Red Sox. Fenway is not as favorable to lefties as it is to righties, unless you can go the other way. Not saying Harper can't, but i don;t see the Sawx disrupting their chemistry to squeeze him in somewhere.
    Yankee Stadium is notoriously great for lefty pull hitters, but unless Cashman is playing dog in the manger, they seem to be staying within their "budget." That is, until they sign Machado.
    My guess is LA, both because the recent trade clears room and money and because Harper is from Las Vegas (Henderson, actually.) He might want to return West after spending the last few years on the east coast.
    No matter what, it's been fun watching it all play out, including the other moves leading up to the present scenario.

    On small trades I use PWE but'll use a bubble mailer if you ask.
    Slow trader. Please be patient: I love trading, but I don't have enuf time for it, so it takes me a while.

    Check my site: http://www.freewebs.com/frankpell/ for wants and trade items.
    "CMB"'s will be ignored. Sorry.

    Cant disagree with any of your assessments. I still think Harper goes to either the Dodgers/Phillies and Machado goes to Philly/NY. Depending on which one signs first - look for Philly to put a ridiculous offer on the table for the other one. If they miss out, may be a long time before they are able to back the Brinks truck up for anyone else......

    I certainly don't think the Red Sox will sign him. Although it was fun thinking about Mookie, Benintendi, Harper, J.D. and Bogaerts as your top five.

    I still think that even though the Cubs are not getting much ink about Harper, that they will be the one who signs him.

    And give up on Jason Heyward?? NEVER!!!!!

    Wonder if the commish is telling to delay their (Harper/Machado) signings as long as possible to keep MLB talk fresh in everyones head as we head into spring training????

    I say he goes back to the Nationals in a surprise move.

    Though the Yankees are a possibility...Boras has been telling teams Harper can play 1st base

    Creepy, unusual or scary thread

    Boras would tell teams he could play pitcher or catcher if he thought it would put another million in his pocket.......

    As long as a team isn't bidding against itself, the price tag will only be insane, not clinically insane.

    Harper visited with the Padres today - that would be an interesting move....
