  1. The Harper contract was such a terrible move… Bad player for the clubhouse and not even close to worth the contract from a performance standpoint. He is now 5 years removed from his one single superstar season (2015). Since then he has posted a couple of sub 2.0 WAR seasons and has averaged 3.0 WAR- that is the beginning phase of being a good player, nowhere near a star.. Nationals had Harper for 7 years and won the World Series as soon as he left the team, and Nationals players were talking about a much better clubhouse atmosphere during 2019 Spring Training (hint, hint). Addition by subtraction… Bryce Harper sucks and the Dodgers are very lucky that he didn’t sign with them.

    ” executive told FanRag Sports that Harper was “overrated” and a “selfish, losing player.” The exec added, among other comments: “He’s simply overrated. The good ain’t worth the bad. He’s a losing player. Cares about himself more than the team. If I was in charge and had money, my team would not pursue him. We would use that money to sign 2-3 winning players.” ”
    He doesn’t have the reputation for no reason.
