If you're like most of us, you've been on the edge of your seats waiting for Bryce Harper to sign with a team -- any team at this point.
And if you're a Giants fan, you're hoping the sight of Larry Baer in Las Vegas meant good news for the six-time All-Star sporting orange and black soon.
Well, there was some traction on thoughts of Harper signing with the Giants on Saturday:
“My Guy” just texted me the same thing. He’s usually 90% right on. Told news will break about an hour. Let’s see. https://t.co/ITkQ88HmST— Damon Bruce (@DamonBruce) February 9, 2019
We got excited, too. And by the number of retweets and favorites, fans did as well.
But don't get your hopes up. Mark Feinsand, executive reporter for MLB.com, made sure to put those talks to rest:
There seems to be a lot of chatter on Twitter about Bryce Harper signing with the Giants today, but two sources tell me that’s “not accurate.”— Mark Feinsand (@Feinsand) February 9, 2019
Feinsand went and killed the dream for us.
Just kidding, he's cool. But Giants FanFest is taking place as these rumors started, so the timing couldn't be more perfect.
The wait continues ...
