MLB Rumors: Bryce Harper will 'eventually' sign with Phillies?

Share

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.

Boras' comments come after reports indicated Harper turned down a 10-year offer from the Nationals in late September worth approximately $300 million.

Harper, 26, was selected No. 1 overall by the Nationals in the 2010 MLB Draft and made his major league debut in 2012.

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. And when seeing how Bob Nightengale is willing to "bank on" the Phillies being the winners of the Harper sweepstakes this offseason, fans can only hope that it's only a matter of time before this comes true.

Walmart releases its Black Friday ad for holiday shoppers
Some of the top deals include more than 15 televisions under $300, including a 55-inch TV for $199.99 (regular price $379.99). On Nov. 22, from 4 p.m.to 6 p.m. local time, Walmart stores will throw special Black Friday parties for customers.

So, what are the chances of Harper coming to one of the two Chicago teams?

Needless to say, the Phillies landing Harper would be a huge get for the front office.

It might not be today, but a recent story strongly suggested that when Bryce Harper does eventually sign a mega-deal this offseason, it will indeed be with Phillies.

In fact, when looking at how the 2019 free agency class has received plenty of hype for a couple of years, it's easy to understand why there's so much excitement when it comes to the Phillies, especially if they can land someone like Harper or Machado. It will cost them roughly $US13 million. He did start in a home All-Star Game at Nationals Park, but Harper hit just.214 in the first-half of the 2018 season. Harper posted a slash line of.249/.393/.496 with 34 home runs in 2018, and has a.900 career OPS with 184 homers. "But with Farhan Zaidi moving north from the Dodgers and being ushered in last week as the Giants" new head of baseball operations, Sabean, who still has one year left on his contract, has essentially been vaporized, nowhere to be seen.
