    Bryce Harper's social posts about San Francisco show Giants might have a shot

    SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants play in Major League Baseball's worst ballpark for left-handed power hitters. They have lost 187 games the past two seasons. With their future payroll commitments and poor farm system, there is a very real chance that they are two or three years away from being back in position to play postseason baseball.

    There are a lot of reasons why the Giants are a poor fit for one of the best outfielders to ever hit free agency, but team officials believe there are also real reasons why Bryce Harper will consider settling down at AT&T Park. Put the money aside for a moment. This organization has the wherewithal to make an appropriate offer to Harper, but that's not what the Giants will hang their hopes one. This is about something else.

    Bryce Harper likes San Francisco. 

    That's the belief of team employees who have whispered his name over the past two years and hope he's the star of an offseason reload. A lot will go into Harper's decision, but at a basic level, the Giants know the Las Vegas native likes San Francisco and has enjoyed his time at AT&T Park, and that'll get them in the conversation for his services, at the very least.
