Good Job Phils, You’re Still Gonna Suck and Now Also Be Much Poorer For The Next Decade

Bryce Harper, Phillies agree to record-breaking $330 million free agent deal (CBSSports.com)

Harper, 26, authored a .249/.393/.496 (133 OPS+) batting line with 34 home runs and an MLB best 130 walks last season. Sketchy defense dragged his overall production down to 1.3 WAR, though the poor defensive ratings are an outlier compared to the rest of his career. He consistently rated as an average or better defender prior to 2018.

Average or better.  LMFAO.

Mark my words, this deal will come back to haunt the Phillies.  Maybe not next year.  Maybe not three years from now.

But according to what I’m seeing, this is a 13 year deal, with no opt outs.

It will come back to haunt them.

Not smart.

At that point they’ll try to deal him because the AAV is only $25M+ per, and I think they said by the end of the contract due to inflation it would be worth $17M per. Throw in a little money and in 2029 Harper could be playing for, I don’t know, the Honolulu A’s?

/I mean they keep moving farther west

Considering yesterday I was convinced he was going to sign with the Giants, I am very pleased that Bieber-haired Fuck is staying out of the NL West and is going where he didn’t want to go in the first place.

I dunno…long term deals with Pujols and Josh Hamilton worked out well for the Angels.

(somewhere, Bobby Bonilla nods and slowly walks to the bank…)

Sharkbait

Isn’t Bonilla STILL getting paid by the Mets?

WCS

Until 2035 or thereabouts.

The Harper deal will come and go, and Bobby Bonilla will STILL be getting paid by the Mets.

I’m sure Bonilla is paying someone else to walk to the bank for him.

Probably Fred Wilpon.

Fuck the Wilpons, fuck Bernie Madoff, fuck Bobby “I’ll show you the Bronx” Bonilla(the player)[the retired version that got one over on the Wilpon rubes is awesome], fuck Keith Hernandez for introducing Doc and Darryl to coke, fuck M. Donald Grant for trading Tom Seaver and getting $.01 on the dollar, fuck Atlanta and their stupid racist chop, and for good measure fuck Walter O’Malley and Horace Stoneham for making me root for this god-forsaken franchise.
