    @johnnyredstorm I just mimicked your Shaun Anderson acquisition in my other league. You think he's the goods?

    he's kind of got a point though. Harper was doing this last year and then after the break batted like .290.

    Wonder how much Bryce’s signing influenced Trout’s decision not to go to Philly. He already saw how bad a terrible contract can impact a franchise with Pujols. He wasn’t about to go through that again :lol:

    I understand we were stupid and didn't pony up to get him, but I still think Harper goofed not joining us.

    He got paid, can't be mad about that, but if he was batting behind Bryant, with Baez, Rizzo, and Contreras (R-L-R-L-R) behind him, he'd be doing an awful lot of winning the next few years. :smh:

    @CP1708 money > winning

    You can’t fault a player for choosing the money route, as all MLB teams are money > winning themselves.

    Not gonna leave 50-100 million on the table to win a couple more games. It’s not like a title/playoffs are guaranteed.

    Then comes a point where a team can not afford so many marquee guys, so it’s a matter of time before all those guys leave, and you might be that superstar amongst a bunch of ****ty players since you’re tied into a long term deal

    We were only 43 games in on his 1st year of contract lol dudes already talking reckless bout it

    We still holding down 1st atm and winning series besides just getting crushed by brewers.

    Got a +26 run differential.. holla at me in a few years with this harper non sense

    Our offense is perfectly fine with cutch, jean, harper, hoskins, realmuto
