MLB's biggest stars still unsigned: Where will they go?

Bryce Harper's post-Super Bowl tweet met with excitement, exasperation

Spring training is nearly upon us and Bryce Harper is still a free agent in Major league Baseball. While the deal will drain the Phillies farm system, the team still has deep pockets and it won't change the pursuits of Harper or Machado. Philadelphia was nearing the finish line in a deal with the Marlins for catcher J.T. Realmuto - the most valuable backstop in baseball.

Now it's no surprise that adding Harper would make the Giants a significantly better team, but how realistic is the possibility of the team signing him? "Wherever he wants to play". Interestingly enough, maybe. While surrounded by cacti and palm trees collectively, I have had time to soak in the atmosphere of west coast baseball, and reflect on the more recent resurgence of Bryce Harper's possible appearance in pinstripes this season.

By Tuesday morning, the odds-makers at the popular sports gambling site, OddsShark, and other sports books lowered the Phillies' future odds to win the World Series from +1600 to +1200- tied with the Chicago Cubs, Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals. Harper calls Las Vegas his home and in this part of the country, where deserts and mountains are plentiful, the whispers of him actualizing his dream to play in NY could come true. The Phillies and Nationals seem to be the most serious contenders for the four-time All-Star.

Harper, also 26, has still yet to find a home since he declared his free agency after his 2018 season.

Sarri urges his players to support this superstar more
I put [Mateo] Kovacic on the pitch after the fourth goal because Jorginho had a little problem to his groin. He's a great striker. he can hold the ball, he can play one touch, he's intelligent.

"Waiting for you and (Manny) Machado to sign", one tweet said.

The former National League MVP played seven seasons with the Nationals.

Information on negotiations is scarce, but the one thing we can be sure of is that Harper hasn't been bowled over by an offer yet.
