Giants CEO shares information about Bryce Harper meeting
The San Francisco Giants are very much in the Bryce Harper sweepstakes, and they’re not hiding it.
Giants CEO Larry Baer revealed Saturday that the team’s meeting with Harper this week went a full four hours — longer than the team expected — and added that the organization is “giving it a shot.”
Larry Baer said the meeting in Las Vegas with Bryce Harper lasted four hours, far longer than anticipated. Baer: "Bryce Harper is an amazing player. These are competitions. I can’t handicap it. I don’t know where we are, but we’re giving it a shot."

Much like the general public, the Giants don’t seem to know where Harper’s thinking is at this point. Some reports indicate that the outfielder prefers the West Coast, which could benefit San Francisco hugely. Others suggest that his old team is carefully watching some potential suitors with the potential of jumping in aggressively. We don’t know much, but we do know that the Giants are serious and aren’t hiding that fact.
