Harper to draw ‘historical’ offers — Major League Baseball free agency

No deal is official and no announcement has been made. The deal would have included Yasiel Puig. "Anyone who's done what Bryce Harper has done at 25, if you've done that, you're nearly a lock to be a Hall of Fame player".

Putting Harper at first would allow the Yankees to keep their outfield intact and most importantly, keep Aaron Judge in right field. For those of you without a math degree, $35 million per year over a 13-year period would be $455 million. The Dodgers and Nationals ultimately could not reach a deal.

Boras tabbed Harper as a "generational" and "iconic" player - citing the Nationals' stark increase in attendance, television ratings and overall franchise value since Harper joined the team.
