I think the Cubs are going to prioritize Harper in the off season, but I think both of their contracts are going to be insane. I'm okay with signing one of them, but if you sign Harper, Baez plays SS and Happ plays second.
I think that's why the Yanks went in/after Stanton. Because his contract looks affordable compared to what those guys are likely to get.

Absolutely. That acquisition was deciding whether or not they wanted Harper. They chose Stanton over Harper. I would actually guess that Harper will resign with the Nats now.

I think the Nats are going to have to at least make the NLCS this coming year to keep Harper. He seems like the type that frustrates easy and clearly wants a championship. His patience may wear thin with the organization. That's just my opinion though.

That's an interesting thought. I wonder if he has any childhood friends that play for a contender? I'd bet that team would have a shot at landing him if so 02-13-banana

Precisely. I think it was after (or maybe before) the Nats/Cubs series last post season when Harper mentioned how much he respects the Cubs organizations and almost flirted with the idea of playing alongside Bryant someday, if you read into what he was saying.

go ahead and spend the 400-500 mil it's going to take. Having him in your lineup obviously sounds nice, but he can't stay healthy at this age. End of that contract will be worse than Arod
