MLB Rumors: Free Agent Bryce Harper To The Yankees ‘Not Happening’

The Washington Nationals offered Bryce Harper the biggest free agent contract in the history of the four major sports in late September and he and his agent turned it down. 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.

An incredible amount to turn down - as it would be the biggest free-agent deal in terms of total money in the history of the four major sport - but also almost $100 million short of what Harper and agent Scott Boras are seeking.

That whole presentation was fire, but she probably needed to clarify that exit a little better with DeGeneres. It was then removed, which appears to suggest that Ariana maybe wasn't linked to the release at all.

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 has expressed a desire to remain with the Washington Nationals but they could face a challenge if other clubs are motivated to spend lavishly.

Citing a "well-place source", Olney says Harper is "not going to be a Yankee". But the Dodgers could have a change of heart. The Phillies are expected to be one of the most active teams in free-agency. And the Nationals, of course, could up-the-ante. But people familiar with the offer also indicate it is now off the table, an offer meant to capitalize on the Nationals' exclusive negotiating rights with Harper that stood for five weeks until the 26-year-old officially became a free agent. The Nationals wanted to lock up their star, but Harper felt $30 million per year for the next decade wasn't enough money.

RED WALL: DeSantis holds off Gillum in governors race
Gillum told supporters in Wakulla that Tuesday is a choice between the "Trumpizing of America" and working together. DeSantis , after voting in Ponte Vedra Beach, told reporters: "We did as much as can be done and I'm happy".

Importantly for any future negotiations, Harper's deal would not be the largest in baseball history by average annual value. It may not have been. It will cost them roughly $13 million.

Harper's contract season of 2018 was a mixed bag. "He has done a lot in the game already, and he is just scratching the surface".

Part of the thought in signing Harper would be that you may be paying for his peak. The six-time All-Star and 2015 NL MVP boasts 184 homers, 521 RBIs and a.900 OPS during his six-year career in Washington.

Hyundai will bring its electric SUV Kona to India next year, which will be the first true long-range electric auto in our country. In February, Elon Musk's SpaceX launched a Tesla Roadster auto manned by Starman, a mannequin in an astronaut suit, into the sky.

Whether the Nationals will be without Harper remains to be seen.
