Bryce Harper and Manny Machado? Phillies fans shouldn’t hold their breath

Harper has played for the Washington Nationals since 2012, but many expect him to look elsewhere in free agency.

However, his quick rejection of the deal doesn't exactly inspire hope he'll be returning to Washington.

Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is the highest-paid player in baseball with a 13-year, $325 million deal. Nightengale now says that the Dodgers aren't interested in Harper, and the Cubs, ironically, seemed to put a dent in their chances to be able to afford Harper when they exercised Cole Hamels' $20 million option for 2019 last week. The Times later confirmed the Dodgers did make the offer.

It's a great twist of fate for the " When Harry Met Sally " actress and the "Hurts So Good" singer. The actress and musician rekindled their on-again, off-again relationship in 2017, reports ET .


For years now, Boras has been selling Harper - who at the age of 26 is already a six-time All Star, a former National League MVP and was the 2012 rookie of the year - as a talent so rare he could command more than $US400 million. Indeed, the Nationals need starting pitching, a catcher and to upgrade their bench. With just over a month until the MLB Winter Meetings, it doesn't appear that a decision from Harper (or any major free-agent) is imminent.

"I'm comfortable with the alternative (to signing Harper)", Rizzo said Tuesday. He'd make any team in baseball better, including the Red Sox.

Per Joel Sherman of the New York Post, Boras also described the system that rewards teams for tanking as a "cancer". No deal is official and no announcement has been made. According to reports, the Nats' offer is now off the table, but the team is still open to a deal. Boras did not counter, but word is the Nationals would go higher for a reasonable offer - though how much higher remains to be seen. But no position player has ever earned an average annual value of more than $27.5 million (Alex Rodriguez and Yoenis Cespedes). Nightengale says that Harper is seeking a 13-year deal that tops the average annual value of $34.42 million that Zack Greinke now has in his deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
