Agents and executives reportedly believe Phillies will land Bryce Harper

And in strictly financial terms, they are probably going to be right about that, if it's true the bidding starts at 10 years and $300 million, which is what Harper reportedly turned down from the Washington Nationals. No deal is official and no announcement has been made. The deal would have included Yasiel Puig.

Boras said he defines "generational player" as: 1.

Harper is expected to garner interest from a multitude of teams, and among them could be the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Boras tabbed Harper as a "generational" and "iconic" player - citing the Nationals' stark increase in attendance, television ratings and overall franchise value since Harper joined the team.

"We All Just Trampled", California Bar Shooting Survivor Recalls
Suddenly, a man wearing a black trench coat and glasses approached the bar entrance and shot the security guard. He lives near the bar and said numerous regulars grew up in the area and have known each other since childhood.

Although the Phillies having interest in Harper is not surprising, the idea that they might actually land him is. And the Nationals, of course, could up-the-ante.

As Allen pointed out, Harper's timing is interesting, as he has become a free agent after his contract with the Nationals expired at the conclusion of the 2018 season. The Nationals wanted to lock up their star, but Harper felt $30 million per year for the next decade wasn't enough money. It may not have been. The Phils inked a new TV deal four years ago that not only pays out a total of $2.5 billion in rights fees; it also comes with a 25 percent ownership stake in Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia that could be worth billions more. He may not get that much - or at least not that many years - but it does seem that there's been an effort from Harper's camp to shift the overton window on just how much Harper could ultimately earn this offseason. The six-time All-Star and 2015 NL MVP has 184 homers, 521 RBIs and a.900 OPS during his six-year career in Washington.

According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, the Phillies are likely to sign free agent superstar Bryce Harper.

Whether the Nationals will be without Harper remains to be seen.
