Harper urges RB Bell to 'come join' him in Philly

Harper urges RB Bell to 'come join' him in Philly

The massive deal becomes the most expensive in baseball history as it eclipses the $325 million contract Giancarlo Stanton signed with the Miami Marlins a few years ago.

Manny Machado, the other marquee free agent of 2019 signed a 10-year, $300 million contract with the San Diego Padres, leaving Harper alone as the top free agent.

The deal, which is the most expensive contract any major professional sport has ever seen, includes a no-trade clause. Yes, the Cano deal was outside-the-box, but that was about it, and even that came with an asterisk of sorts in giving up highly-touted prospect Jarred Kelenic.

Last year, Harper batted just.249 but led the league in walks (130) and maintained an.889 OPS (10th-best in the NL) while belting 34 home runs and driving in 100 runs.

The famous faces at Meghan's NY baby shower
Canadian stylist Jessica Mulroney , whose daughter Ivy was a bridesmaid at Meghan and Harry's wedding, was also there. Apparently, Meghan's journey to and from NY for the star-studded party is thought to have cost £190,000.

Not even the Phillies, either - Harper wants Steelers star running back Le'Veon Bell to sign with the Eagles and join him in Philadelphia. Those three combined for 89 homers in 2018, while the Phillies as a team past year hit 186. He started more than a third of his games in center field instead of his usual spot in right, because of injuries to teammates. "And they're going to sign Trout by the way, in two years".

It's understandable that teams have their respective monetary constraints and that the Nationals aren't exactly big spenders, but a former MVP of Bryce Harper's caliber doesn't hit free agency every year.

If that is indeed what the Dodgers were offering then it is clear that Harper was prioritizing long-term stability over the chance to make the highest salary in all of sports for the next four years. In fact, Jim Duquette of MLB Network Radio reports that the Phillies have offered Harper no more than $300 million and do not now have the highest offer on the table for him. Harper wore a headband with the D.C. flag's design, reflecting his oft-stated pride in playing for Washington.

Washington never confirmed the exact number, but it was said to be "aggressive".
