This has some ramifications on Harper signing for sure.  All things considered though, I think it is a net improvement on the odds he signs.

Don't be ridiculous - this move helps convince Harper that management is serious about keeping a winning team

Window just got extended, 7 for 175 seems like Stras told boras to get freaked and signed what he thought was fair

That is an incredibly good deal for the pitcher who was going to set this market this offseason. Well done, Rizzo. Wow.

Wow... I love Strasburg and glad to have him but I hope this doesn't prevent us from locking up Harper long term.  Werth noting that a very big contract will be coming off the books when Harper hits free agency.

1.  It means that boras won't always go to fa.

2.  If they are willing to pay for stras they are probably willing to pay for Harper.

3.  Harper is more likely to sign with a guy like stras locked up.

4.  Harper pays for himself with the revenue he brings in.  Overall payroll is not an issue. 

5. Strasburg may have got some inside info that Bryce is planning on staying.  With boras representing both, there may have been a conversations regarding both players.

That's mostly speculation.  But I like it.
