Bryce Harper Wants An Extension With 8 Years Remaining On His Deal

In 2019, Bryce Harper signed a 13-year contract with the Phillies for $330 million. It’s now 2023 and Harper wants an extension with eight years to go on his current deal. No, I am not making this up.

VIA ESPN:

“Bryce has certainly expressed to them that he wants to end his career in Philadelphia,” Boras said. “I’ve certainly told [president of baseball operations] Dave [Dombrowski] I think Bryce is a franchise player. … He came there for the fans. Apart from my advice, he goes, ‘I just want to go and make sure I can recruit players in Philadelphia, let the fans in Philadelphia know that I’m going to be there for the duration, that I am committed.’ I think he’s been an important voice for them to attract major free agents.”

“He has a lot of goals that he wants to achieve in Philadelphia,” Boras said. “Obviously he’s a Hall of Fame-type talent. He wants to keep his personal pursuits in the game there. … He’s been there five years, he’s kind of shown them who he is, and why he’s a franchise player. I think he’s changed the player community, how players view Philadelphia, and so consequently, he’s come in and said, ‘This is something I want off my mind. I want to play well beyond the contract that I have.'”

I encourage you to read the original post from ESPN because it’s insane. The fact that they’re bragging about not including an opt-out in the contract couldn’t be more hilarious. Harper, 31, doesn’t just have eight years to go. His contract that’s in place already takes him past age 38. Does the guy want a contract that takes him past age 45? Like WTF are we even talking about?

I can’t imagine that Dave Dombrowski is taking this seriously. I can’t believe it’s even a topic of conversation.
