‘Bank On It’: Phillies Lead Race To Sign Bryce Harper, Report Says

‘Bank On It’: Phillies Lead Race To Sign Bryce Harper, Report Says

"We took advantage of our exclusivity late in the season".

Harper has played for the Washington Nationals since 2012, but many expect him to look elsewhere in free agency. But if they do, it nearly certainly won't be that deal, and Mike Rizzo acknowledged Tuesday his team can not afford to wait around.

Remember, the Yankees got the Marlins to eat $30 million of Stanton's contract, so they'll be paying less for him than it would cost per year for Harper or Machado. The deal would have been the second-richest in Major League Baseball history, trailing only Giancarlo Stanton's $325 million contract with the Miami Marlins signed in 2014, and the third-richest in sports history.

King Charles III won't rule like the Queen
The notable monarchs all made their way to the temporary abode of Prince Charles and welcomed him officially to the country. He has campaigned on issues such as the environment for decades, but says he would not do the same as monarch.

He has 10 years left on a 13-year, $325 million contract where he'll be making between $26 million and $32 million every year through the 2028 season. Though that offer is no longer on the table, USA Today reported the team is still open to working out a different deal.

"Because the player is entering the prime of his career you're really talking about a unique and rare opportunity", Boras said. "It's historical. It's elite". "And it has inspirations that deal with great shoes and great hair".

"It behooves us to have an expiration date", Rizzo told reporters Tuesday, an indication the Nationals are prepared to move on in their plans without Harper because, as one person familiar with the situation said, they "can't have $300 million dangling out there for months". Aside from Washington, the Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants and several other teams are expected to pursue his services. According to a report, the Dodgers attempted a waiver trade to acquire Harper in August. The deal did not include a no-trade clause, per the same report. "Anyone who's done what Bryce Harper has done at 25, if you've done that, you're nearly a lock to be a Hall of Fame player". "He's nearly a lock to be a Hall of Fame player".
