FINALLY. NOW THE BASEBALL SEASON CAN ACTUALLY START.
News that everyone had been waiting on since October and thought was never going to happen. But it actually happened.
Bryce Harper has signed with the Philadelphia Phillies.
Breaking: Bryce to the Phillies
— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) February 28, 2019
The Terms: 13 years, $330 million. No opt-outs.
The largest contract in North American sports history.Yowza.
For Harper, he got exactly what he wanted in the form of a dickload of cash. Scott Boras is likely in a basement looking like this…
The Phillies finally got their man. After months of building up a competitive team through trades and free agent acquisitions, they got their magnum opus. Harper will likely cause the Phillies to instantly become the NL East favorites and probably NL pennant favorites.
Thanks for taking so goddamn long Bryce, and, sincerely thank you for not signing with the Yankees.
