Dodgers Offered Nationals This Star In Pursuit Of Bryce Harper Trade

  • Bryce Harper

The 26-year-old All-Star is one of 164 free agents on the market, but he's going to make more than anyone else available.

An unbelievable amount to turn down - as it would be the biggest free-agent deal in terms of total money in the history of the four major sport - but also almost $100 million short of what Harper and agent Scott Boras are seeking.

The Nationals have removed their 10-year, $300 million offer, but still remain hopeful they can keep Harper in town.

However, his quick rejection of the deal doesn't exactly inspire hope he'll be returning to Washington.

Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is the highest-paid player in baseball with a 13-year, $325 million deal. The sides could still strike a deal later in the offseason. Indeed, the Nationals need starting pitching, a catcher and to upgrade their bench.

The new chip should make a major difference in battery life, which has been one of the main issues holding smartwatches back. Under the hood, the Fossil Sport comes with a built-in heart rate sensor , GPS , and NFC for payments with Google Pay.

Obviously the Yankees could afford to sign either one of them anyway, especially after re-setting their luxury tax at a lower rate by staying under the $197 million threshold in 2018.

"It's going to be a challenge to put the best product on the field, and that could include Harper and it could be doing things without Harper", Rizzo said.

In a story titled "Bryce Harper will sign with the Phillies". "There is a reality that we would love to sign him, but we may not". Boras also has Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg as clients. Given Harper's history with the Nationals, he seems unlikely to make a deal elsewhere without first circling back.

When the Dodgers claimed Harper, they offered Yasiel Puig to the Washington Nationals, according to a source. Boras did not counter, but word is the Nationals would go higher for a reasonable offer - though how much higher remains to be seen. Zack Greinke ($34 million), David Price ($31 million) and Clayton Kershaw ($31 million) all got more. But no position player has ever earned an average annual value of more than $27.5 million (Alex Rodriguez and Yoenis Cespedes). It was not enough.
