Harper to draw ‘historical’ offers — Major League Baseball free agency

Bryce Harper

It gained even more traction earlier this week when Harper's agent, Scott Boras, told MLB Network Radio that the 26-year-old right fielder would be a more-than-capable first baseman.

An awesome amount to turn down - as it would be the biggest free-agent deal in terms of total money in the history of the four major sport - but also almost $100 million short of what Harper and agent Scott Boras are seeking.

BTS appearance on Japanese TV canceled over member’s atomic bomb shirt
Despite the controversy over the top, some Japanese fans expressed disappointment that the BTS performance had been cancelled. After BTS cancelled their flights to Japan, the designer behind the t-shirt issued an apology.


They reportedly touched base with the Nationals on him at the non-waiver trade deadline this past season and claimed Harper on waivers less than a month later, although the two teams were unable to come to an agreement on a trade.

However, his quick rejection of the deal doesn't exactly inspire hope he'll be returning to Washington. Teams do make token offers now and then, to save face or push the price up for rivals.

Where the wildfires are burning in SoCal — MAP
This morning at 7:00am, the Los Angeles Fire Department reported via Twitter that the fire is an "imminent threat" to Malibu. Only a day after it began, the fire near the town of Paradise had grown to almost 110 square miles (285 square kilometers).


Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo discussed the offer with reporters on Tuesday. Indeed, the Nationals need starting pitching, a catcher and to upgrade their bench.

It will be interesting to see what happens this offseason though if the Dodgers pursue Harper in free agency as Puig is eligible for salary arbitration this winter and under contract for one more season.

Former Sun Tyson Chandler officially signs with Lakers
The Lakers ended the clash with a +7 rebounding advantage, the first time they've done so since their third game of the season. LeBron James is not only the best basketball player alive, but he is also perhaps the shrewdest NBA mind in the game today.


If Harper signs elsewhere, the Nationals' outfield next season will consist of Juan Soto in left field, Victor Robles in centre and Adam Eaton in right field, with former Gold Glove finalist Michael A. Taylor as a back-up in centre. It will cost them roughly $13 million. He'd make any team in baseball better, including the Red Sox. No deal is official and no announcement has been made. Though that offer is no longer on the table, USA Today reported the team is still open to working out a different deal. Nightengale says that Harper is seeking a 13-year deal that tops the average annual value of $34.42 million that Zack Greinke now has in his deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Max Scherzer got exactly $30 million. But no position player has ever earned an average annual value of more than $US27.5 million (Alex Rodriguez and Yoenis Cespedes). It was not enough.
