Which team is giving up one of them for Bryce?

Braves, Blue Jays,  White Sox, Reds, Pirates, and Phillies are rebuilding, so they have no reason to trade for him.

Red Sox? Doubt it. Offense wasn't really a problem for them. They also have one of the best RFers in baseball and a top prospect for left.

Mets: A possibility. If their pitching is healthy, that's a really good team with Bryce Harper. Amed Rosario is probably three years away from being MLB steady.

Yankees - They need starting pitching, not offense.

Indians - Scored one less run than we did without Brantley.

Astros - Don't need help on offense and are pretty stacked in the OF

Rockies - I mean, I'd love to see it, but they don't need offense

Brewers - A good trade partner if they're willing to pick up the money. They need offense and Bryce would be a good fit. Lewis Brinson is a good prospect and is probably MLB ready or will be in the 2018 season.

So we have two trade partners. Do you think those teams are going to cough up their top guys for a year of Harper? Do you think those teams are Bryce Harper away from a WS bid?
