from today's Kevin Goldstein FG chat:

Quote
George: It was rumored there was a Harper to the Astros trade in the works in his walk year. How close to being done was that trade and do you remember who was involved?

Kevin Goldstein: It would be in bad taste to talk about the players involved, but I went to bed that night believing Bryce Harper was an Astro.

goldstein was in the Astro's front office before rejoining FG today.

That jives with the general reporting that Rizzo had a deal done and the Lerners blocked it. I would bet money Rizzo got the green light from Mark early on, but Mark chickened out.

I wonder how Nats fans would have felt if he went to Houston and they won a WS that year.
