    No opt out. Insane contract

    https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/b...ee-agent-deal/

    Harper's deal is for 13 years and $330 million and features no opt-out clauses, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan.

    Dodgers offered him a shorter contract of like $40+ million per year. INSANE!

    Don't feel bad, I saw a quote from an unnamed Tiger re: this deal that was essentially: "Why would he want to play that long, this game sucks"

    This is also less AV than Ryan Howard's major deal. Revenue is up something like 30% since then, too. They aren't paying guys like they used to.

    Glad my Padres got Machado signed first. That deal looks much better than this one.

    Some other reporter wrote this first, but: he made such a mistake. It's Philadelphia. Before too very long, they will resent him for the money, the hair flip, and sporadic production. He will resent them because they will not - ever - love him unconditionally.
