The rumors of Bryce Harper to the Yankees will continue to swirl until the game’s biggest star ends up in pinstripes.
Though the opportunity of every Yankee fans dream becoming a reality is still a few more years away (he is a free agent after the 2018 season), it does not stop fans and writers from talking about it. Even former Mayors are getting involved. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is a known Yankee fan, said to TMZ that he would “love it” if his team landed the most coveted prize.
He was also asked if he thinks the Yankees can sign Harper and he responded with “I think we have a chance to get whoever we want.”
I know one thing is certain, every Yankee fan would love to see Harper don the pinstripes and hit moonshots in Yankee Stadium. Sadly, it is far from a certainty as is most things in sports. Yankee fans will have to wait two and a half more seasons to see if their team will be the one to land the star right fielder.
