While Harper's presence on the Nats is realistically one of the myriad factors that have effected those changes, those types of milestones could very well carry more weight with some franchise owners than with baseball operations leaders.
In order to afford Harper, the Yankees might have to explore the option of dealing Stanton, who has a no-trade clause. "Its elite. Global, certainly", Boras said of working on a deal for Harper in free agency. No deal is official and no announcement has been made.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are usually in contention when it comes to signing the top free agents on the market, and that may be the case with Bryce Harper this winter.
It's always been thought that the Nationals will not be able to out-spend the likes of the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers for Harper's services in 2019 and beyond.

Adriana also posted on Instagram to confirm the news, in a video montage of her best clips over the past 19 years. Last year, the show was held in Shanghai as the USA brand sought to push into China's growing lingerie market.
As Nightengale notes, the Nationals were thought to be able to retain Harper up until that report.
"He's shown the type of player he is, and now he's a grizzled veteran, " Rizzo said.
He has 10 years left on a 13-year, $325 million contract where he'll be making between $26 million and $32 million every year through the 2028 season.
Importantly for any future negotiations, Harper's deal would not be the largest in baseball history by average annual value. He may not get that much - or at least not that many years - but it does seem that there's been an effort from Harper's camp to shift the overton window on just how much Harper could ultimately earn this offseason. Harper has performed well at Citizens Bank Park in his career, hitting 14 of his 184 career home runs at CBP, which is good for the second-highest total of any ball park he's played in behind his home stadium.
