Manny Machado and Bryce Harper are going to be making 300 million and 330 million over the next decade and decade plus respectfully. I cant be the only one who thinks this is fucking insane. These signings seem to be as stupid as they sound. In what alternate universe does Machado and Harper get bigger deals then ohhhh lets say Miggy Cabrera and Albert Pujols when they resigned?
I mean come on are you serious? In what way is Harper better then Pujols who was a legit triple crown candidate every year. Philly has not been relevant for a few seasons and are looking to make a splash so I get what they are thinking but why lock your organization in to 13 years on a hot head who has been tagged as a cancer teammate? Why not wait 2 more seasons and go all in on Mike Trout who is a guy you can really build an organization around. Come on Phillies you know better.
Machado has been a great player through the ups and downs of a dismal Orioles organization so im not sure why he chose to go to another garbage team. He literally went to a pitchers park when he had the option of going to so many other teams for a few million less a year and actually go to an organization that can win and immediately at that. Ya know, they say that money is the root of all evil and for these two young studs they have committed career suicide and I dont see them winning any championships while also laughing all the way to the bank.
