Mike Francesa Reacts To Bryce Harper Signing With Phillies


Harper ended up agreeing to a 13-year, $330 million contract with the Phillies on Thursday, a deal that could keep him in Philadelphia through the 2031 season.

Harper is expected to earn $25.3 million annually over the life of the reported contract, which should give the Phillies some additional payroll flexibility. Manny Machado signed with the San Diego Padres on February 20 and the Phillies got their guy a week later.

But Harper, as was his right to do, instead opted to take the long-term deal that guaranteed him $330 million and a no-trade clause. The six-time All-Star and 2015 NL MVP will turn 39 at the end of 2031, when the deal ends.

According to multiple reports, the Los Angeles Dodgers offered Harper more money annually than the Phillies, but on a shorter contract.

"Obviously a 13-year deal, that's good for the game", the pitcher said, per Mid-Atlantic Sports Network's Mark Zuckerman. If all goes according to plan, Harper will be under contract with the Phillies until 2031. Is he gonna hit home runs in that park? The Phillies still should be able add to the roster over the next few years if players they like become available, despite being tied to Harper for more than a decade. It's one thing to get outbid or have the player choose another team, but not even making a serious attempt to sign either of them? All eyes will be on his return to D.C. "And they're going to sign Trout by the way, in two years". The offer no longer was on the table after free agency opened without an agreement.

Free agent running back Le'Veon Bell shared a screen shot of his Instagram DMs on Friday, which included the following message from Harper: "Aye come join!"
