Nats star Harper reportedly snubbed US$300 million offer

Bryce Harper

In fact, when looking at how the 2019 free agency class has received plenty of hype for a couple of years, it's easy to understand why there's so much excitement when it comes to the Phillies, especially if they can land someone like Harper or Machado. Nightengale now says that the $300 million offer is no longer in play.

The aggressive offer to Bryce Harper would have paid him about $30 million a year in the long-term proposal by the #Nats as the #Phillies, #SFGiants and #STLCards now expected to be in the mix.

While Harper could be exploring other options, it's still possible he might return to the Nationals.

Harper's agent, Scott Boras, scoffed at reports saying the Yankees would sit out the Harper sweepstakes. But if they do, it nearly certainly won't be that deal, and Washington's general manager and president of baseball operations Mike Rizzo acknowledged on Tuesday that his team can not afford to wait around for the right-fielder to make his decision.

Harper headlines one of the most valuable free-agent classes in Major League Baseball history, which also includes infielder Manny Machado, closer Craig Kimbrel and former Cy Young Award victor Dallas Keuchel.

Harper tweeted that he's the cover athlete of MLB The Show 19.

Janes added, "Important on Harper: Both sides considered this a respectful offer". It may not have been. Wait a minute. Didn't Boras claim during the World Series that Harper already made up his mind where he wanted to play and had a deal hammered out? For those of you without a math degree, $35 million per year over a 13-year period would be $455 million.

Harper's position is not really one of need for the Yankees. The last superstar of this level to hit the market at Harper's age (26) was Alex Rodriguez. He finished the season with 34 home runs and 100 RBIs, but only managed a batting average of.249. Bryce Harper is arguably the best player on the market.
