I am thinking of setting up a fantasy baseball league. Anyone interested?Still super-early of course but the aging New York Mess are down two infielders. I know it means nothing, but I can't help but think this is a dark omen for an injury- and mishap riddled team.
If you guys want to start an Out of the Park Baseball league, I'd like to sign up. Not meaning to be an advertisement (again), but the new edition comes out in March.
I use the Fire TV because the app on console and on smart tv sucksAnother spring training, another year of MLB.TV being broken as hell on Ps4. Issue this year is the app itself is slow and crashes. The games themselves stream fine, but navigating the games is slow and if I watch one game and try to switch over the another, the thing freezes.
And I redownloaded MLB.TV when ST began so I'm on the current version. Can they figure it out just once at the start of the season? Rant over.
They are gonna pay him a fuck ton of money in his twilight years.
The NL East is a 4-team race, and one of the teams just got (significantly) better in one fell swoop. Say what you will about Harper, but he's most certainly a game-changing presence in any lineup.Why?
I wanted, as a Nats fan, for Philly to chase Machado and Harper. Means they didn’t improve that piss poor bullpen.
That's exactly what he did.Contract might be heavily front loaded.
Imagine if Harper just signed with the Phillies because he wanted the largest contract in history. At some point, that contract will be topped. Why not just sign somewhere you want to play?
He decided to chase home runs last year at the expense of the team. Thought that power numbers would get him beyond $400 million.Gotta say I agree 100%. Talented player but the antics are tiresome. When you've constantly get it fights with other players on other teams you might have an attitude problem. When your own teammate tries to choke you in a dugout fight something is up. Also the Nat's still look incredibly strong and still have a lot of youth coming up.
He's also been insanely streaky over the past few seasons. I don't buy the injury thing. He was chasing breaking balls down and in all last season, that ain't related to injury. I never thought Harper would put everything together because he seems like the type of guy who let's his emotions get the best of him. He's not a rookie anymore and has been in the bigs for 7 seasons. What you see is what you get.
Would have been nice to have someone hitting some dongs for us on the Giants but I really didn't want him around.
Through reporting here and elsewhere, we now know the basic shape of Harper’s other offers. The Giants were close, with 12 years and $310 million. The Dodgers’ fascinating shorter-term bid was, according to Verducci, either four or five seasons for either $172 million or $215 million. (Jon Morosi pegs L.A.’s offer at four years and $180M). Could Harper have re-entered free agency at age 30 and signed a contract that, combined with the Dodgers’ deal, would ultimately equal what he got from the Phillies? Maybe. But it does appear that he valued the security of a lifetime contract now.
And the Nationals’ reported 10-year, $300 million offer made to Harper before the end of the regular season? It included so much deferred money (it would have paid Harper through the year 2053) that its present-day value wasn’t in the same ballpark as the other offers. $184 million, according to Verducci, or $240 million, per the Post’s Neil Greenberg. The math on deferred contracts is tricky, but since the former figure is coming via Boras and the latter via the Nats, you should feel safe pegging the true value as somewhere in between.
Apparently Bryce said he only wanted to be a free agent once and unless he maintains a great output until he's 39, he'll have his wish
Prediction: I’m going with the Indians to finally win the World Series. They beat the central division to a pulp, year in, year out, and also it won’t be easy but their foot hasn’t been off the gas since Terry turned this show around so I’m going with the Indians and it doesn’t matter who they play. It’s about time.
Bryce Harper can’t wait to bring a title back to D.C.
Me Too. I used a service that has an app on Fire TV changing my IP. Makes everything super easy.Not sure. I was using reddit streams for spring training, worked pretty good. I don't use MLB.Tv because I live in the state my team is in, so I wouldn't be able to ever watch them on it.
