Bryce Harper wants Le'Veon Bell to join him in Philadelphia

Bryce Harper on the Phillies That fight with Jonathan Papelbon and other things to know

The deal does not contain any opt-outs or deferred money and will keep the outfielder in Philadelphia through 2032.

Barring any significant injuries, Harper could have easily surpassed the $330 million over 13 years if he had taken the Dodgers' offer, then inked another lucrative deal once it expired. The deal will set a new record for largest guaranteed contract in baseball history.

Harper reportedly turned down several significant contract offers from various teams. Trout, a Millville, NJ native, is considered by most the best player in baseball.

Bryce Harper is trying to lure another superstar to Philadelphia.

The Nationals should consider themselves lucky that Harper didn't accept their offer, otherwise they would have been well on their way to becoming the laughingstock of the league. if they aren't already after this leaked.

With the contract, Harper beats the 10-year, $300 million deal infielder Manny Machado inked with the Padres and current Yankee Giancarlo Stanton's 13-year, $325 million extension with the Marlins. Harper will reportedly sign with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Harper has been an All-Star in six of seven big league seasons and was the unanimous victor of the 2015 NL MVP award.

Harper was the No. 1 overall selection in the 2010 draft and made his major league debut less than two years later with the Nationals. He's hit 14 home runs at Citizens Bank Park, putting up a.564 slugging percentage.

But that eventually ran its course. The offer no longer was on the table after free agency opened without an agreement.

In that conversation Harper says, "Aye come join!" If they didn't get Harper and waited, they may have never had an opportunity to sign someone like a Mike Trout or Mookie Betts.
