    Well, opt outs only favor the player and hurt the team so I'm not sure why you wouldn't give him or any player no opt out. No trade clauses are pretty standard for star players so that's not an issue.

    Harper is a former MVP and a top 10 or 15 player. Hell, he had a down year last year and still was 16th in OPS (by far the most important hitting stat imo). And playing 81 games at citizens bank park where his career numbers are very very good should help him even more.

    This was a smart deal and Harper took a little bit of a per year discount.
    Well if you are happy with it I guess thats ok. It may be that im too scarred over the ARod mess that these big contracts are scary to me.

                • Also, that 12 year contract has zero opt-outs. 12 years is an awfully long time. That's insane to me.

                  • Tell me the owners aren't fucking the NFL players when baseball players are getting paid like this. They are literally destroying their minds and bodies for peanuts compared to players in a sport that doesn't bring in near the revenue.

                      Someone did the math, and he stands to make more per AB than the US median household annual income.
