WTTS Pod: Are the Dodger’s the Favorites to Land Bryce Harper?

On Monday, WTTS spoke with Chris Camello, who first reported that the Los Angeles Dodgers and Bryce Harper had reached an agreement. How legitimate are these claims? Listen to find out!

On this bonus episode of Welcome to THE SHOW, Manny spoke with Chris Camello, beat Writer/Columnist for The Rebel Media Group and freelance journalist for the Daily BreezeOn Saturday, Chris Camello reported that the Los Angeles Dodgers and Bryce Harper had reached an agreement.

When asked why we should take his reporting seriously, Camello directed us to three stories:

  1. Justin Turner and Kanley Jansen’s extensions
  2. Trading for LHP Scott Alexander
  3. The Dodgers losing Head of Research and Development, Doug Fearing

Camello was the first to exclusively break these Dodgers stories with the help of his source.

Camello also made it abundantly clear that according to his source, the Dodgers want Bryce and vice versa. He also echoed Ken Rosenthal’s statements that while the Dodgers “are widely rumored to be in on Harper, they do not want him on a long-term, record-setting contract.”

In order for the Dodgers to feel comfortable moving forward with their “agreement” with Harper, they will have to move one or all of the following contracts:

  • Matt Kemp (1-year, $21.5M left)
  • Rich Hill (1-year, $18M left)
  • Yasiel Puig (1 year before UFA)

After moving those deals, the Dodgers, will probably offer Harper a short-term deal worth big-time money.
