The Bryce Harper sweepstakes are in full swing.  The free agent outfielder and his agent Scott Boras are seeking a record setting deal.

The Philadelphia Phillies remain the favorites to land the 26-year-old, despite rumors of a secret deal with the Dodgers.

Philly has met with Harper’s agent multiple times, at both the GM and Winter Meetings.

There are still several teams that remain interested in Harper, although a couple of them have stated they don’t want to hand him a record breaking contract.

It will likely come down to whether the Phillies are willing to sink a ton of money long-term into Harper or they decide to spend it elsewhere.

If you ask me, I would spend the money elsewhere.  These long record setting deals rarely work out for the teams that hand them out.
