Major League Baseball star Bryce Harper rejects $300M offer from Nationals

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

"He's shown the type of player he is and now he's a grizzled veteran", Rizzo said. For years, it appeared as though Clayton Kershaw would be part of it, though he agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Los Angeles Dodgers. But if they do, it nearly certainly won't be that deal, and Washington's general manager and president of baseball operations Mike Rizzo acknowledged on Tuesday that his team can not afford to wait around for the right-fielder to make his decision.

"They did not pay anywhere near [Harper's] $400 million to $500 million in [true value]", Boras said. And the Nationals, of course, could up-the-ante.

This year's MLB free agent class has been hyped up as one of the biggest in league history.

Today we did very well, the players were fantastic. "We came into the game fully focused and it showed", Solari said. Once they play with this seriousness, commitment and wanting to score. "I am only thinking of the next game.

Harper will enter the open market as one of the most sought-after free agents in recent memory. Nightengale says that Harper is seeking a 13-year deal that tops the average annual value of $34.42 million that Zack Greinke now has in his deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks. 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. For those of you without a math degree, $35 million per year over a 13-year period would be $455 million.

He didn't become the most influential and famous - some might say notorious - agent in baseball, and perhaps all of North American sports, through acquiescence. "He has done a lot in the game already, and he is just scratching the surface". Though the Nationals weren't able to save their season after the All-Star Break, Harper played at an MVP caliber following the midsummer classic, slashing.300/.434/.538 with 11 home runs, 46 RBIs and 52 walks in the second-half of the 2018 season.

In a conversation with The Post, Boras said in Harper's time with the Nationals, the club's value climbed more than four times, attendance increased by 600,000 and TV ratings tripled, and that his client had a substantial hand in those rises.
