Bryce Harper agrees to mega-deal with Phillies — Twitter Reaction


MLB Network Radio host and former MLB GM Jim Bowden says because of Harper's low average annual salary it's more than possible.

Bryce Harper is headed to the City of Brotherly Love after agreeing to a contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Finally, a note on the context of this pact.

That choice is to join the Philadelphia Phillies, as first reported Thursday by Jon Heyman.

Phillies fans had to wait a little longer than they'd hoped to get Harper, but they got their man, and this is cause for a parade through the streets of Philly.

Wildhack says Boeheim will coach Saturday's game against Duke
He got a chance to show off his range against Syracuse's 2-3 zone, too, taking five threes and knocking down two of them. Authorities say Boeheim pulled out his cell phone to make sure other cars didn't hit the disabled vehicle .

Bryce Harper is trying to lure another superstar to Philadelphia.

Many have pointed towards pitchers Dallas Keuchel, who is represented by Harper's agent Scott Boras, and Craig Kimbrel, arguably the best closer in baseball.

And as always, Twitter was the place to go for real-time reaction to the biggest free agent contract in North American team sports history. He's amassed 922 hits, 184 home runs and a career.900 OPS over his career. Well, to help continue the Harper celebration, it's time to have some fun by looking three players who could be on the move from the Phillies if they were to explore potential trade options.

Harper is a six-time All-Star and won the NL Rookie of the Year award in 2012.

Past year was, by Harper's standard, a down season. They also gave ace Aaron Nola a $45 million, four-year deal. Harper will return to his old home in the season's second week, when the Phillies play at the NL East rival Nationals on April 2 and 3. In theory, Harper may have been able to sign another long-term deal after hitting free agency that could've netted him more than the $150 million difference.
