Could the San Francisco Giants be a surprise spot for Bryce Harper?

As was mentioned in this space last week, the Nationals, Yankees, Dodgers and Phillies are seen as among the favorites for Harper, while the Cubs may not be quite the likely landing spot that folks perceive.

But what about the Giants?

They made a big run at star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, they appreciate sluggers and superstars, they have been cognizant about trying to stay under the luxury tax threshold this year.
