How does the old saying go? Just when you thought you were out, they bring you back in again. By ‘they’, we are talking those surrounding the Bryce Harper situation.
Furthermore, a situation that is fluid. So fluid that reports have surfaced that Harper may be interested in a two or three-year deal now in free agency. Moreover, this brings the Los Angeles Dodgers prominently back into the picture. With a shorter pact in play, there is a chance they could once again leap back into the Harper sweepstakes.
They’re already back into the storyline.
“I’m hearing that Bryce Harper may be interested in a two or three-year deal now…”

Randy Miller is a beat writer for the New York Yankees. Miller is the man who broke the story. However, the Dodgers are not the only team to leap back into the potential mix with a shorter pact a possibility. A division foe of the Dodgers is now also in play, Miller says.
“I think the Giants now are looking at the Padres going in and the White Sox going in, thinking, ‘Maybe we can get him on a contract that’s maybe a short term,’” Miller said on 95.7 The Game. “I’m hearing that Harper may be interested in a two or three-year deal now.”
“There may be some things changing down the road that allow him to become a free agent (when) there may be better offers down the road.”
MLB Network then discussed the possibility of Harper suiting up for the Giants.

We are now fully back into the Bryce Harper saga which will have new mystery teams – and the Dodgers back in whispers. Brace yourselves for a few more weeks of turbulence before an ultimate landing.
Keep in mind that this could be posturing by Harper and his agent Scott Boras simply to collect final interest from the market or just to test another theory within negotiation. In any event, the Dodgers remain a possibility, and we are here to make you aware of it all.
What are your thoughts? Does a shorter term deal interest you in Harper joining the Dodgers? Let us know in the comments why or why not!
