Ten Years And $300 Million? Not Good Enough, Says Bryce Harper

The biggest story this Major League Baseball offseason would be the two superstar free agents in their mid-20s.

The Nationals star had an opportunity to sign a 10-year mega contract worth approximately $300 million with the team in late September, but rejected the club's offer, according to multiple reports. He didn't take it. The Boras Corporation will send a text message to reporters informing them that Scott Boras will be fielding questions at an anointed time and place. Those conversations led to what one person called "an aggressive offer". Even though Harper is still only 26, a 14-year deal with an average annual value of $30 million per season felt a bit excessive.

'Sociopath' boy arrested for killing mom over bad grade
While they have, too, have yet to be formally, charged, police said they are likely facing multiple criminal charges. Investigators say the boy killed her after they argued about his school grades.

While Harper could be exploring other options, it's still possible he might return to the Nationals. The contract did not match the $325 million that the Miami Marlins gave Giancarlo Stanton in 2014, however, which is likely why Harper turned it down. The system is now perversely set up to encourage teams to go to one extreme or the other in terms of competitiveness, which hurts the overall product as well as specific things like the free agent market.

If Harper signs elsewhere, the Nationals outfield next season will consist of Juan Soto in left field, Victor Robles in centre and Adam Eaton in right field with former Gold Glove finalist Michael A. Taylor as a backup in centre. He has a life in Washington D.C. Maybe he's ready to move on, but it's possible he likes said life there and that could matter. He's going to test the free agent waters, but he still very much could wind up back in D.C. As he's pointed out before, he essentially grew into a man there. Once he rejects the qualifying offer - the deadline is this coming Friday - things really kick into gear regarding rumors.
