Obviously, Bryce Harper is going to be one of the most desired free agents the next offseason, and there have been plenty of rumors that say that Harper's most probable and likely destination will be at the Bronx with the New York Yankees. 

 

And just before the series opener between the Washington Nationals on Thursday, Harper was asked by Jamal Collier from MLB.com about the possibilities of him going to the New York Yankees next season, but he was obviously reticent to talk about it:

I'm a National now. We're going into this series trying to win some ballgames. That's the only thing on my mind.

 

This is no surprise, as he said during Spring Training that he will not answer any question regarding his future and possible teams that are interested in him, and was very emphatic by saying in one occasion that he'd walk out the door should any reporters ask him questions about his future.

 

Obviously, the Yankees are trying to build a dynasty by bringing back again the days of the "Evil Empire" by signing superstars and spending big amounts of money on players, which certainly signing Harper will probably break some records.
