    Not sure what the final agreement will be, but #Dodgers offered Harper multiple options:

    1) A 3-year $120M deal. Would re-enter free agency at age 29. Highest AAV in #MLB.

    2) 10-years for $310M, front loaded (40M years 1-3, 30M years 4-6, 25M 7-10) with an opt-out after year 3.

    I still think we should sign Kimbrel to bolster our pen and shorten the game for our starters, but it would also be an added cock block to the Phillies.

    We are pretty much the front runners to repeat as Division Champions now.

    Wait... I thought l read here that we were definitely headed for fourth place in the division?

    So if the Phil’s don’t get Brycee that makes us definite favorites?

    Ya people may wanna look at those Vegas odds and expected win totals.
    As the Braves showed last season, they are not set in stone but they usually are a pretty good gauge of where teams will end up.Washington is gonna be tough, lots of things went wrong for them last year and they still fought us till the last weeks.
    I believe a lot of our young players will outperform the projections but I also believe that will be balenced out by our vets underperforming (Neck,Mccan,Ender,)
    Season will hinge on JD and Acuna.
    I believe in our strength in numbers when it comes to our pitching but I’m not as optimistic on our bats as most around here but I hope I’m wrong and we repeat.

    It’s important to make sure the Twitter page is legit. If they have 23 followers, they ain’t legit. Don’t feed the trolls!

    Fake report or not...this is a great week. Either the Phils do not get Harper or they pay way too much for him. Win/Win.

    The Dodgers already have a great offense, so adding Harper definitely makes them better....but he will have less of an impact there.

    The greatest thing, if it happens, is that Philly can’t get him to come there for over 300 million. That’s how bad that place is. There are some things even stupid money can’t buy! I hope LA signs him and makes a trade with us. Then, Philly being embarrassed overpays for another player.

    As much as I personally dislike Philly the city. I think Harper has more issues with Kapler. Usually douches don’t like competition.

    Also, Harper and Boras are fighting. Boras wants the biggest deal for his pockets. Harper may take a shorter term.

    I don't understand this reasoning. Harper holds the cards... he can tell boras to kick rocks

    Once a guy gets a name like Bryce Harper, I don't understand why he even uses an agent. Why not go Ray Allen and do the deal yourself? Negotiate a deal, and then get a lawyer to check it out before signing it.

    Why? He's going to be 34 after the season, probably would expect a boat load of money if he has a decent year and we have Riley?

    Makes no sense.
