The Bryce Harper sweepstakes are believed come down to three teams. The Phillies, Dodgers and Yankees have been rumored to be the most likely to sign him.
ESPN’s Pedro Gomez ran into Harper’s agent Scott Boras in the Houston airport and starts a Harper to the Houston Astros rumor.
Just ran into Scott Boras at Houston airport as we were each headed to different gates. Asked if he was switching planes or was in town. He gave a very cryptic answer insinuating he was IN Houston. Hmmmm, Bryce to the Astros?

Could the Astros be interested in Harper? It is possible, but Boras does have more than one client and could be in Houston for someone else.
Although Astros fans are hoping Boras is in town for Harper. It would certainly make an already strong lineup that much better.
