Ten Years And $300 Million? Not Good Enough, Says Bryce Harper

Bryce Harper

Thought the offer was $100 million short, there were no hard feelings between Harper and the team. The system is now perversely set up to encourage teams to go to one extreme or the other in terms of competitiveness, which hurts the overall product as well as specific things like the free agent market.

Putting Harper at first would allow the Yankees to keep their outfield intact and most importantly, keep Aaron Judge in right field.

With Harper playing a majority of his games in right fielder the last few years, it makes sense that Puig would become expendable if it meant acquiring a player of Harper's caliber.

As the Major League Baseball offseason gets underway, perhaps the most prized free agent of all time, Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, is now on the open market. 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.

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. It will cost them roughly $US13 million. "But I'm not comfortable with the statement that we're a better team without him". For the moment, it seems he and Boras will explore options elsewhere. It turns out that he rejected a contract offer from the team that very day. Boras also has Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg as clients. Boras did not counter, but word is the Nationals would go higher for a reasonable offer - though how much higher remains to be seen.

Average annual value would have been $30 million, USA Today Sports's Bob Nightengale reports.
