The Bryce Harper Sweepstakes are starting to heat up. Expectations are that the 26-year-old will be signing for no less than 10-years at anywhere from $300-$400 million.
Information coming from the MLB Winter Meetings is that the Chicago White Sox have taken the lead and are considered the front runners to sign him.

The White Sox getting into the mix is an interesting development. Another team from Chicago has long been considered one of the handful of favorites to land the former MVP.
Harper would get those pinstripes he’s rumored to want to wear.
