Bryce Harper 13yrs- 330 million...worth it??

Post by Mr.Transistor » Thu Feb 28, 2019 3:54 pm

So Bryce Harper finally signed his big payday with the Phillies-13yrs for 330 million. I don't think he's worth this at all. He could get hurt late in the year, never play again or never be the same player again. Big Risk by the Phillies. Personally I think the guy is a douchebag who think's he's God's gift to everything. Who knows anyways I would never pay that 13yrs....... that's crazy. More power to 'em if you can get it.

How are the per season payouts tiered?

I will say this - the deal perhaps isn't quite as idiotic as the one the Tigers gave Cabrera.

Is Harper worth it? That can only be determined in hindsight. If the Phillies eventually have a championship dynasty I'm sure his salary will be an afterthought in the minds of most fans.

There's a rumor the Phils will also go after Mike Trout when he becomes a free agent after the 2020 season! :shock:
