  • If you’ve been living under a rock for the last few days then I have some great news for you! Bryce Harper has signed a 13 year $330M contract with the Phillies. This contract includes a full no-trade clause as well as no opt-outs. For the people who have looked at their phones, the TV, or the newspaper in the last three days you knew this already. There have been many pictures today, but here is one of Harper in a Phillies’ jersey. This article is not a news breaking or informational article. Instead, I thought I would have some fun and write about my opinion. As I said, unless you’ve been under a rock, then you know everything about this contract already. With that being said, I’m going to tell you how I feel about this contract. The newest Phillie, Bryce Harper in his Phillies’ jersey Again, remember that this article is my opinion. This offseason has been an extremely long and frustrating ride. Both Harper and Manny Machado had been free agents for a long time. Pitchers and catchers reported and they were both still free agents. Then, the whole team reported and full team practices started and they were both still free agents. Finally, Machado signed a 10 year $300M contract with the San Diego Padres. Not too long after that, Harper signed with the Phillies. I’ve said for months now that I would rather have Harper over Machado. Although it was rumored that both players would sign with the Phillies, I never believed it. I thought it was possible, but I didn’t think it was going to happen. I wanted the Phillies to go after Harper because I believe he is the better fit for the city of Philadelphia and the fan-base.
