Heating up

The San Francisco Giants have emerged as the latest team with a serious interest in free agent Bryce Harper.  Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi called the interest "mutual" and added that, "you don't make a trip out there to meet with a player just for show."

Via ESPN:

"There is obviously mutual interest on both sides," Zaidi said. "We thought it made sense to get together. We had a good conversation over a few hours. He's obviously got a lot of suitors and a lot of interest. He's going to have some decisions to make. I think it's fair to say that was an expression of our interest level, to make the trip out there to meet with him.

"You don't make a trip out there to meet with a player just for show."

The Giants reportedly plan to offer Harper a "lucrative short-term deal."  The action is heating up, but the fact that he and Manny Machado haven't signed yet remains a head scratcher.
