Bryce Harper is Going to Get PAID Now in Free Agency

The MLB Off-season has been focused on two big free agents: Manny Machado and Bryce Harper. Both were seeking out big deals and one of them got it today.

So now, Machado is off of the board with going to San Diego (have fun Manny!) and the attention switches quickly to Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies.

What Does Machado’s Deal Mean to Harper?

In two words: a lot!

It has been very talked about around the league that Bryce Harper to the Phillies could be a realistic possibility. But, at what cost? Do the Phillies go above the 300 million dollar mark? Well…they probably should!

What the Phillies Will Get with Harper If He Signs

The Phillies will be getting a six time All-star, a 2015 N.L. MVP, and Silver Slugger all in one. Harper is a five tool player that can make any team much better in an instant. Sure, he has some cockiness to him and a lot of swagger. But when you hit for 34 homeruns and 100 RBI’s and people say you had a bad year, then you know you’re a terrific player.

In Conclusion

The Phillies better be ready to bring out the brinks trucks. They are going to need a lot of them to land the now biggest free agent on the market. Will Harper be worth it? Most likely yes! But…could the Padres make another big splash before the 2019 season begins?

*Cue the suspenseful music* Tune into the next episode of “The 2018-2019 MLB Off-season” to find out.
