Boras reportedly refuses to let Harper sign for less than Machado. 

Philly plans to make a run at Keuchel and/or Kimbrel if they can't land Harper or move on from him.

Then I really, really hope Harper signs there.

Is Scott Boras Bryce Harper's daddy? Sure sounds like it!!

Marwin Gonzales to the Twins for 2/12.

Ok, this is another one of those deals that really annoys me that the Braves didn't do. This one, Michael Brantley, and Cody Allen. Either AA is stingy as heIl or free agents don't want to sign with the Braves.

I've been saying this all offseason. He's sitting back and riding last year's success and it's going to bite us in the ***.

Would have liked this deal in a heartbeat. UGH!

Ugh. That's a deal I would have done in a heart beat. Makes the team that much better instantly.

Maybe he wanted to stay in the AL so he could DH on off days in the field? Trying to find a reason that makes me feel better lol.

You inverted the numbers. It's two years at $21 million.

Was reported on MLBN at 2/12.

Wouldn't be the 1st time they were wrong.

$21M is the accurate number. I was just coming here to post that. He gets 10.5M per.  Still would have considered him at that range. He plays so many positions and hes actually been a better hitter away from Houston. Hes .272 career away from Houston, .254 at home. 40 HR at home, 36 away.

When I was looking at earlier, I decided that's probably a fair price for him if a bit high. He's just okay offensively, but it would be phenomenal to have a second Camargo type on the team. We'd be injury-proof.

At $12M I would have been all over it. But $21M makes it a little harder to do but it's not something I would cry about. It would have been amazing to have him, Camargo and Culberson on the bench.

Please let this happen!! It would be amazing!!

Best part is, they still aren't a playoff team in San Diego. Not with the Dodgers out there.

Phillies owner has been in Las Vegas for 2 days. Speculation is the team is moving closer to a deal with Harper. Sounds like it's going to be a 10 year deal similar to Machado. We'll have to see when he gets his opt out and how much more he gets.

Theres supposedly a couple of other teams making final pushes in Vegas as well

Must be nice to be able to sign the best pitcher FA and best position player too.

San Diego signed Corbin?

The post I was quoting was about Harper possibly heading back to Washington.

Unless you are saying Machado is better than Harper? I'm just don't trust Machado to not coast now that he got paid along with possibly being on a 3rd place team.

I know. And yes, I think Machado is the better all-round player.

Neither one of them is a max effort player. Harper's no better than Machado in this area.

Told yall a before Machado signed that he would be in SD and Harper would land in Philly, now that it's all going through, I expect the Braves to make a run at Kimbrel or Keuchel

Multiple reports that the Dodgers have suddenly jumped back in on Harper. If they're serious about him that could be a huge threat to Philly. Harper would be close to home and have the LA stage.

Buster Olney adds that NL teams can explore longer deals with the knowledge the DH will be happening soon.
