Another day has brought another twist to the Bryce Harper free agency sweepstakes.


The latest report insists that, amid recent contact, the Washington Nationals are working based off ​another offer to their free agent outfielder, much different than the one we journalists have been throwing around. Ex-GM Jim Bowden tweeted that Washington's latest offer to Harper is for more than the $300 million and 10 years that we've considered their breaking point.

The initial offer that the Nationals made Bryce was a 10-year, $300 million pact, which was eventually declined. ​​I can't blame the Nats for making another offer, since there so far hasn't been another team that has shown clear-cut interest in signing Harper.


MLB insider Bob Nightengale wrote on Thursday that ​Harper's friends believe that he prefers to land with the Los Angles Dodgers, even though LA has not made their interest clear in the outfielder, especially not long-term.

If Harper is dead set on going to where he gets the best offer, then he would be better off going back to D.C. if he's going to get over $300 million. I doubt that he's received an offer from another team that's close to what Washington's supposed offer is.
