The mutual interest for a potential reunion with Bryce Harper and the Nationals remains strong, but the standstill in Harper's lengthy free-agent process has seemingly centered on dollars and years. While the baseball world took a proverbial break from business over the holidays, Harper and his agent, Scott Boras, met for five hours with Nationals owner Ted Lerner on the Saturday before Christmas, according to a report on Wednesday from the Washington Post's Chelsea Janes.
