REPORT: Red Sox May Trade For Bryce Harper

Coming To Fenway?
According to a report quoting "major league sources" on, the Red Sox will try to acquire Bryce Harper this Winter in a trade with the Washington Nationals. Reportedly, Mookie Betts would be the centerpiece of any package to get the 22-year old Harper, along with one or two of Boston's top pitching prospects, and/or Allen Craig and Blake Swihart. The theory behind this deal is that the Red Sox need left-handed power and Harper has had "immaturity issues" while with the Nationals—which the team (and primarily its manager Matt Williams) is fed up with. Clearly, this would be a blockbuster move—one the ownership in Boston might need after the debacle that was 2014.
