Phillies, Harper agree to 13-year, $330M deal

Less than 24 hours after the Philadelphia Phillies signed Harper to a 10-year deal worth $33 million, fans are now salivating over the idea of adding Mike Trout too, when he becomes a free-agent in 2021. So, what did the Dodgers offer? I say yeah, it's where Bryce Harper played, they go "Oh, where Bryce Harper played!" explained Garritano.

I don't want to explain the joke and I don't even think it's terribly good, but it caught a lot of attention on Twitter.

Harper, a 26-year-old All-Star outfielder who's spent the entirety of his seven-year major-league career with the Washington Nationals, topped the 13-year, $325m agreement outfielder Giancarlo Stanton reached before the 2015 season with the Miami Marlins.

Fortnite World Cup Details & $100000000 Competitive Prize Pool for 2019
Fortnite has been quite rewarding these days, and many people think it's because of the growing of the Battle Royale genre. The lead-up to the World Cup will consist of 10 weekly Online Open qualifiers that will run from April 13 to June 16 .

However, Harper's main priority was getting the longest contract possible. "Bryce wanted one city for the rest of his career". He led the NL in walks a year ago and has posted a.279 average over his career, with 184 home runs and 521 RBIs. He likely would hit third or fourth, according to Kapler.

Along with the $330 million that's set to be wired into his bank account over the next 13 years, Harper will receive and additional $20 million as a signing bonus, per New York Post's Joel Sherman.

Harper's deal comes a week after Manny Machado signed a 10-year, $300 million free agent deal with the San Diego Padres, and two days after Nolan Arenado agreed to an eight-year, $260 million extension with the Colorado Rockies. Because Washington paid luxury tax last season, its compensation pick will be after the fourth round, about 140th. The ability to sign baseball's best, even if a team has the most money, is no longer a sure thing. Well, to help continue the Harper celebration, it's time to have some fun by looking three players who could be on the move from the Phillies if they were to explore potential trade options. Boras said Middleton's wife, Leigh, and Harper's wife, Kayla, were part of the gathering.
