Padres 'Very Aggressive' With Offer To Manny Machado

Padres 'Very Aggressive' With Offer To Manny Machado

After reports of Harper meeting with the San Francisco Giants arose, USA Today's insider Bob Nightengale went on 680 KNBR in the Bay Area to talk about the potential pairing of Harper and San Francisco. The Phillies have money to spend, and most signs are pointing toward Philadelphia making Harper an offer that is close to 10 years. However, it sounds like Nightengale thinks the Giants have the edge.

Despite a plethora of teams expressing interest in both Harper and Machado at some point this winter, there still isn't a timetable on when either player will sign a contract.

The Washington Nationals and the Los Angeles Dodgers have been mentioned for Harper, too, though Nightengale believes they're out.

San Francisco is coming off two of their worst seasons in a decade, but they improved to win 73 games a year ago.

The optimism regarding the San Francisco Giants' chances of landing Bryce Harper seems to have greatly lessened over the last 24 hours.

Nightengale said Harper's decision will ultimately come down to the all-mighty dollar.

The Giants are reportedly interested in offering Harper a massive short-term contract, while the Phillies could give him the long-term deal he's seeking.

Despite rumored offers/wishes of teams, word is Bryce Harper is not signing - or even considering - short-term deals.

If the Giants fall out of the picture, the Washington Nationals, New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago White Sox, and San Diego Padres would be left as the reported front-runners for Harper's services.
