Nightengale, talking about KNBR 680 in San Francisco, says the Dodgers and Nationals are out of the race, which means a two-team race between the Phils and Giants. However, it seems that Nightengale is thinking that the Giants have an edge.
"With the Giants moving in and all of the probability, I believe it's a cash flow," said Nightengale KNBR. "I think the Phillies will be getting Harper, they have to succeed in getting the Giants to get it, I really do. I think it's close to go to San Francisco, if It's a big gap, it's difficult to get out of that kind of money. "
In late November, Nightengale said that you can" bank "on" Harper signing with the Phillies. He has not supported that position so far.
Nightengale also reports that the Giants offer a short-term deal, something like five or six years at $ 30 million or more per season.
Jon Heyman reports however that Harper is not interested in short-term deals, good news for the Phillies.
