Incredible. Finally, we have our answer and it’s music to #Phillies fans ears. Bryce Harper has officially signed a 13-year deal worth $330 million, first reported by Jon Heyman.
Plenty of new details to be revealed, but I did enjoy hearing this:
Boras emphasized 3 areas why Harper went to #Phillies: 1. Length of deal to be in 1 place. 2. Middleton coming to Vegas twice to meet with family explain current and future commitment to be top-5 payroll team. 3. Ballpark gives chance for historic achievement (career .830 at CBP)

This is major and will make the Phillies an instant contender for the NL. We’ll update as the day goes on but raise one up this evening, Bryce Harper will be suiting up for the Phillies.
