Giants manager Bruce Bochy sat down with the Bay area morning sports show Murph & Mac.  He was there to discuss the first weekend of spring training, his upcoming retirement and of course, Bryce Harper.

While talks between Harper and the Phillies have heated up lately, Bochy made sure to point out that the Giants are “still in the hunt.”


“I follow it a little bit, to be honest. I’m trying to keep track of what’s going on with him” Bochy said. “I enjoyed my visit with him, he’s very engaged and he’s a baseball rat, that’s all he wants to do.”

Bochy was part of a Giants contingent that met with Harper three weeks ago in Las Vegas, in a meeting that reportedly lasted four hours. Its been reported that the Giants are indeed still in the hunt for Harper, as a decision is expected sooner rather than later.

“We’ll see, I’m not sure where he’s at with his thinking, but we’re still in the hunt,” Bochy said about the Giants current involvement with Harper as of this morning.

The Giants landing Harper would fit perfectly with this bizarre off-season.  The one thing we’ve learned is to expect the unexpected.
