How does that work with Canada?

Not sure.  I'm not an accountant, I just know that little factoid.  I recruit players in my area and help seek out endorsement deals.  Just in my spare time.  Unfortunately my "big break" client I got in HS is now a JR first team All American and in Baseball America's top-25 draft prospects for 2019...but he dropped us at The Cape a few months back.  Sucks.

If Bryce has a first half next season like he did last year......I hope.......he can dodge batteries while running down fly balls in the Phillips outfield

Shrug. Not many followers either, but a Phils reporter of some sort.

I think these out of state taxes specifically apply to athletes.  Here's a blurb from wikipedia:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jock_tax

Shocking to see California and Illinois at the vanguard of a new tax

It was reported a number of years ago that California had 1 person in their tax office who tracked the number of games every athlete played in Cali. Now they probably have a whole division of employees to do this.

https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2019/01/report-phillies-optimistic-theyll-sign-bryce-harper-or-manny-machado.html

"After conducting a face-to-face meeting in Las Vegas with free-agent outfielder Bryce Harper on Saturday, the Phillies “remain optimistic” they’ll emerge from the offseason having signed him or free-agent infielder Manny Machado, Matt Breen of Philly.com reports. At the very least, the Phillies will be finalists for both Harper and Machado, Breen adds."

From 'optimistic' on both to being 'finalists for both', 'at the very least'. OK..


"If the Phillies are only able to pick one, it’d be Machado, whom they “seem to prefer,” Breen writes. However, the Phillies have “signaled” to him that they are also interested in Harper – a move that Breen posits could pressure Machado to accept an offer from them."

Wow, what looks like a labored leak. So if there's any truth to this, it may be that they let out the same day that they're leaning towards someone else than Harper -- but wait, they add that being 'also' interested in Harper equates to pressure for Manny to take what the Phillies offer! That's some negotiating tactic right there...

Any "experts" like Rosenthal, Morosi, etc., willing to speculate which one (Bryce or Manny) signs first, and when that might be? Even a guess at a month?

From what I have read Harper is holding out for Machado to sign first so he can exceed the contract. Haven’t seen what Machado thinks about that. It’s kind of dumb.

I heard something similar.    Harper wants to be the highest paid so he's holding out til Machado signs.    Might have been on 106.7 yesterday during my walk about.

Hey whatever helps Harper sleep at night.

I think it’s pretty telling that the big markets (NYY, LAD) have not even offered a contract. When those teams aren’t prepared to throw money at you...

Philadelphia Phillies emerge as clear-cut favorite to land Bryce Harper after meeting

Worth noting but not sure I trust Nightengale.  He is trying to stick with his early offseason prediction.  I'll wait till a more creditable reporter comes out with a report.

He’s often wrong. So are some of the others.

I thought that's what Bryce paid Boras to do? Sit through boring PP briefings and gist them for him.

Nightengal also says Nationals haven’t talked to Harper in at least a month. And the Nationals won’t offer Harper more than 25 million a year

Didn’t they spend five hours with Harper before Christmas?
