The Longer Bryce Harper Waits, the Better for LA

The Longer Bryce Harper Waits, the Better for LA

There are conflicting reports on how long of a contract the Chicago White Sox are willing to offer Bryce Harper and/or Manny Machado this offseason.

Although the Philadelphia Phillies continue to negotiate with free-agent infielder Manny Machado, they're also looking at the other big superstar available on the open market.

Without question, joining a team with potential like Philadelphia could work wonders for a player like Harper, especially when seeing all of the extra games he would get to face his former team in the Washington Nationals.

Rumor has it around the league that the Yankees, White Sox, and Dodgers are all somewhat in the mix to acquire the 26-year-old outfielder as well. Again, that would be a logical assumption, as neither team can guarantee the immediate World Series contention the Yankees (100 wins last season) and the Dodgers (back-to-back NL pennants) can.

What interests Bryce Harper more, winning or more years on a contract? That could give an edge to the Phillies, who have vowed to spend "stupid" this winter. There should be 15 teams in on them if it's limited to seven years! Nightengale tweeted just a few minutes later that Philadelphia will likely make the highest offer to both Machado and Harper, making it even more intriguing to see which player ends up where.

The Nationals have made it clear they are still in the running to sign Harper and MLB.com's Jamal Collier claims that their $300 million deal over 10-years is the only offer on the table at the moment. However, according to Jim Bowden of The Athletic, the Nationals' most recent offer to Harper was for "much more" than $300 million, which a source told him was simply Washington's first offer. The Nationals are the only team known to have made a formal offer, according to Janes.

Don't expect a decision anytime soon, at least not both of them.
