Bryce Harper turned down 10-year, $300M offer from Nats

Phillies’ positional needs centered on but not limited to Bryce Harper and Manny Machado

It's hard to find an executive, scout, or rival agent who doesn't believe that Harper will eventually sign with the Phillies, maybe a month from now when he can drive from his Las Vegas home to Mandalay Bay and make the official announcement himself.

It seems like every day a new Major League Baseball team emerges as a candidate to land the hottest free agent on the market, Bryce Harper. So hefty, in fact, that it is expected to exceed the $300 million mark after he turned down a 10-year offer for that much from the Washington Nationals, the team he spent the first seven years of his career with.

The Post reported on Tuesday that the offer didn't include any opt-outs and was less than the $400 million some have speculated Harper would receive after he and his agent Scott Boras held discussions throughout September.

"Well, certainly, Harper's bazaar has begun", Boras proclaimed.

While Harper could be exploring other options, it's still possible he might return to the Nationals. The Los Angeles Dodgers don't have interest.

Lowe's to close 50 stores; just one in Texas
At that time, Lowe's said it expected to earn between $4.50 and $4.60 per share in the fiscal year ending February 1, 2019. Don't expect to see a bonanza of heavy discounts at Lowe's , despite the announcement that it's closing over 50 stores.

Teixeira signed an eight-year, $180 million contract with the Yankees before the 2009 season. Even though Harper is still only 26, a 14-year deal with an average annual value of $30 million per season felt a bit excessive.

Citing a "well-place source", Olney says Harper is "not going to be a Yankee".

However, it is becoming more and more clear that the Yankees intend to pass on Harper.

All signs point to Bryce Harper leaving Washington this offseason. A six-time MLB All-Star, the outfielder hit.249 with 34 home runs and 100 RBIs during the 2018 season. That would make them seem like an unlikely landing spot for Harper, but Castillo reports that they offered Puig as part of a trade for Harper.
