BRYCE HARPER UPDATE: ARE PHILS THE ONLY REAL BIDDER?

By Sam Bush

The world of MLB is waiting, waiting for the other shoe to drop:

Now that Manny Machado has chosen the Padres, where will Bryce Harper land?

Harper rejected a $300 million dollar deal (with close to $100 million in deferrals) from the Nationals during the season, but GM Mike Rizzo said earlier this week that he wasn’t ruling out bringing Harper back.

So are the Nats in or out?

Todd Zolecki of MLB.com cited sources who say the Nats have “no plans” to make a Machado-sized offer to Harper, while Jeff Passan of Yahoo! says to not rule the Nats out until Harper agrees to sign elsewhere.

The belief all offseason has been that the Nats will only bring back Harper if their ownership overrules the recommendation of the baseball department — something Jon Morosi of Fox Sports recently reported was possible.

So that leaves the Phillies and their “stupid money” offer!
