Scott Boras is either deaf or doesn't want to hear what Yankees GM Brian Cashman has to say.
On Monday at the Winter Meetings, Cashman all but shut the door on the Yankees landing free agent OF Bryce Harper.
"The Harper stuff, I'm surprised you are still asking," he said.
And during his own media availability, Boras countered Cashman's words, saying he "never heard the Yankees say that."
Whether or not Boras is just trying to block out Cashman's stance on his top free agent, Harper just isn't a fit for the Yankees at the moment. The Bombers seem content with their outfield situation that includes Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Aaron Hicks as projected 2019 starters.
Boras said Harper would be open to move to first base, which peaked the Yankees' interest to a degree. But Cashman doesn't seem to be budging on any sort of deal.
The 26-year-old Harper has been seeking a deal worth at least 10 years and more than $300 million.
He has hit .279/388/.512 with 184 homers during his seven-year career, all of which has been spent with the Nats.
