Yes, Bryce Harper will be a Yankee after all.
The Yankees' megatrade for Giancarlo Stanton, the 2017 National League MVP, last offseason made them a less obvious landing spot for the 2015 NL MVP. However, they will have an open spot in their outfield if they decline Brett Gardner's 2019 option.
Harper, 25, has had such an inconsistent walk year that he's no longer guaranteed to secure a $400 million or even a $300 million contract. In light of his youth, it's possible that he and agent Scott Boras will aim for a relatively short deal in which he could build his value for another run at free agency in the near future.
There's no better place for Harper to accumulate value than Yankee Stadium, where he could take regular aim at the short right field porch. Because they're finally set to be under the luxury tax, the Yankees could be more than happy to lure him with a high average annual value.
Besides, it looks like they're going to need to get some revenge on the Red Sox. Adding Harper to a powerful lineup that's already anchored by Stanton and Aaron Judge would help them out in that regard.
