Boone downplays Judge's comment about making room for Harper in Yankees' outfield


The new plan was to overhaul the roster incrementally and add to the existing core, but Zaidi is known to be opportunistic, and if Harper's price truly has dropped, the Giants could find a more suitable deal.

San Francisco is the latest team to join the Harper fray, following the Padres, while the Yankees remain disinterested despite Aaron Judge's willingness to get Harper fitted for pinstripes. Harper and Machado seem likely to sign for less than expected at the start of the winter, which could have teams re-considering whether to try to jump back into the fray. That is no different with San Francisco.

The two sides are struggling to narrow their differences about the wording of a final communique the two leaders will announce . But with the February 27-28 summit in Vietnam looming large, North Korea did not hold a military parade this year.

Harper reportedly turned down at least $300 million from the Nationals early in the offseason. Now it's not clear what he can command or if any team is willing to invest that much money in him for more than a few years. Currently, New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton has the largest deal at $325 million, which he signed with the Miami Marlins. Harper is obviously a special case, and the Giants' weak outfield meant they were considered a contender for the former National in the past. That was sometime around October 29. I was disappointed when the 76ers weren't able to persuade Lebron to come to Philly over Los Angeles, but I will be devastated if I don't see Harper in red and white pin stripes come this April. But not this time. He recently met with the team, according to MLB Network's Jon Heyman. That same morning, a friend of mine at work said he heard someone on 94 WISP call in and say that Nick Foles had sold his house to Harper over the weekend. "Yeah, I do think things can change and your target list evolves over the course of the offseason". He's been on the trade block all offseason - and before that - as the 27-year-old is both a standout and can't be a free agent until 2021.

"If he comes over, he makes the team better", Gregorius said.
