Harper deal with #Phillies is for $330M, per @JonHeyman, @JimBowdenGM and others. Would set record for largest guarantee. Question will be how much of money is deferred.
Bryce Harper’s deal with the Phillies will be for 13 years and $330M, league sources tell ESPN. It will not include any opt-outs.
Well, considering I'm a Mets fan, this is going to suck for us lol.
13 years? Holy moly lol.
Actually, I went to a Sox game last season where they lost 8-0 to the Mets, so there's that. Thor pitched and was lights out.
I'm actually pretty confident the Mets will win the division this year.
Phillies are impressive, but take a look at their defensive measurements of every player on that team, plus the lack of a bull-pen, and you'll see a great team on paper. But we will see.
I have to think they have to overpay Betts. He's too great of a humble superstar to watch him leave considering how much he has for the Red Sox.
Yeah, I was kinda surprised the Mets picked up Cano's bad contract but they also got a really good reliever in Edwin Diaz. If they extend DeGrom and Syndergaard, they should be in good shape. Plus they picked up Ramos and Lowrie, so they could be a contender. Plus Conforto, Nimmo and Wheeler are no slouches.
The Phillies could sign Kimbrel now that they got Harper to shore up their bullpen.
As for Mookie, yeah he's the perfect face for the future of your franchise.
I see the Sox and Mookie coming to terms. The Sox don't have a good track history of keeping their free agents but I think they make an exception for a talent like Mookie.
