Yankees Source Emphatically Crushes Bryce Harper-to-the-Bronx Rumors

Bryce Harper

Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper was offered a 10-year, $300 million contract by the club towards the end of the 2018 season, according to ESPN. The deal did not include a no-trade clause, per the same report.

"He's shown the type of player he is, and now he's a grizzled veteran, " Rizzo said. But for now, the Nationals made an offer that maintained a solid relationship with Harper while giving him what the team saw as fair market value.

Without casting doubt on any of these reports, it's important to remember how quickly things can change in free-agency, especially as we approach the Winter Meetings, which will begin on December 9 in Harper's hometown of Las Vegas.

Harper is expected to garner interest from a multitude of teams, and among them could be the Los Angeles Dodgers.

While Harper could be exploring other options, it's still possible he might return to the Nationals. But the Dodgers could have a change of heart. Teams do make token offers now and then, to save face or push the price up for rivals. And the Nationals, of course, could up-the-ante.

But it appears Harper to do the same with multiple suitors in the bidding.

At just 26-years-old Harper has won Rookie of the Year and an MVP award. It may not have been. A source close to Harper's situation said: "he's not going to be a Yankee". For those of you without a math degree, $35 million per year over a 13-year period would be $455 million.

First, the Nationals - often described as somewhere between maddeningly selective in their spending and unnecessarily frugal - were willing to give one of their players a record-setting deal.

Harper's contract season of 2018 was a mixed bag.

For some time now, as it became apparent Harper would enter free agency this year, it was speculated that he would become a New York Yankee.

"Bank on it", Nightengale wrote of the Phillies signing Harper.
