After turning down $300 mil, when Harper comes crawling back I'd offer him 80% of that deal.

Look, I'll give you that Michigan fans expect too much some times. But almost all college football fanbases are delusional. At least Michigan and ND have won championships in our lifetimes to justify that delusion. Look at any SEC fan base other than Vanderbilt for instance.




A couple orioles fans I know tried this argument recently.  :hysterical:

I'd offer him the same total, but over 2 more years- that way he can say they offered me a $300 million deal and I accepted a $300 million deal and save face

1B of the future.  He's probably too jacked to play 2B.

Offer is off the table.  Rizzo on 106.7 yesterday was using his name in the past tense.  The Nats have moved on.  A $300M contract for Bryce is not in their plans.

The Lerner’s will be back in a jiffy if they have a chance.

Nah.  That is Rizzo's version of doing the dance to say the right things and make it look like we want him back, but in reality we are not going to get into a bidding war.

I would offer $240 over 12 years, no opt outs. :lol:

Nationals — I am surprised how many executives and agents I speak to feel Harper still ends up back here (and Machado in Philadelphia). Whether it was done for public relations to suggest effort or for real, the Nationals’ reported $300 million offer to Harper in late September felt like a last effort to keep a homegrown star.

On the other hand:

The #Phillies say they’re still interested in signing Manny Machado to play third, as well as Bryce Harper in the outfield and Patrick Corbin on the mound. Hey, it’s only money, right?

As if Bryce Harper is going to sign somewhere where he isn't the main focus this winter.

Well, Bob Nightengale is the one who tweeted a month ago that we can "bank on it" that Bryce will sign with the Phillies. Don't know if he's trying to save face. In the last few days, both Buster Olney and Joel Sherman say that most execs they've spoken with believe Bryce will stay and Machado will sign with the Phillies.

Can you imagine those two cancers on the same team?

At least they can compete for the longest HR or who has the better hair.

Depends on the fan. For me it was when he came into this season trying to hit 60 home runs, and refusing to change his approach despite his struggles and recommendations from the coaching staff.

Maybe cancer is too strong. But it doesnt seem like hes as interested in helping a team win as much as he is about his own personal accolades and stats

Not a cancer, but he likes to armchair GM and be vocal about it. If he hit this year like 2015 and made the JTR comments, it would be more excusable. This year he was pretty meh when he said those comments. Honestly, he should get paid but the Nats shouldn't be the ones to do it. There are to many holes to fill and that money is better used to fill those holes.

I think Bryce may be finding out that the market for him is not as high as he thought/hoped it would be. Machado may be in the same boat, for different reasons. We'll see.
