    I say he signs with Yankees and plays first base.
    Can you imagine turning down a contract for $300 million? What a time to be alive.

    It is for athletes.

    Philly will go all out to sign Harper but it comes down to whether he wants to play there.

    30 million for a guy with one 100 RBI season coming off a year where he batted under .250. Life must be great.

    The talk on The Dan Patrick Show this morning made it sound like Philly is the expected landing spot. They also said that Harper/Boros is wanting a 13 year contract.

    Why would anyone want to go to Philly, unless they were offering way more than anyone else were willing to offer?

    Short right field fence and Harper is from New Jersey, which is just across the river from Philly.

    The greed of multi-millionaires never ceases to amaze me.

    This. He's really only had 1 season worthy of the the contract he is asking for. He's a good player but overrated in my opinion.

    I get what you're saying, but doesn't everyone want to maximize their earnings?

    Sure. But you get to a certain point where it really doesn't matter how much money you make because you are making so much. $300 million is beyond that point, IMO.

    This guy from USA Today says Phillies ready to go to 400 mil. Also says Harper at Philly, "you can bank on it".

    Bryce Harper: Outfielder will sign with Phillies. Bank on it.
    Well I guess if I had $400 large, I could learn to like Philly too. They'd have to hook me up with a monthly lunch with Dr. J on top of the money though!

    He's actually from Las Vegas. Left the Las Vegas HS his sophomore year and got his GED so he could make himself eligible for 2010 Draft. Nationals took him #1 in 2010 draft after he had a stint at a junior college in Nevada.
