    Think this got brought up when the Phillies brass talked to Bryce?

    THE CONTRACT(S) NUMBERS

    First, a little fun before we get into the heavy stuff. The Bryce Harper contract is 13 years long, extending through the 2031 season. The Phillies signed an enormous television contract in 2013 that took effect in 2015 and lasts 25 years, through 2040. The deal brings the team $100M (in cash) annually; Harper gets about 25% of that and will be in red pinstripes for just over half of it.

    Perhaps of equal importance is that the team now owns 25% of the networks ad revenue which will, like an Ouroboros, feed off itself now that Harper is a Phillie. In other “theoretical” words, Harper’s presence will increase ad revenue which will increase Phillies revenue-share which will pay for Harper. He could basically be creating the very income the Phillies pay him…theoretically.

    But why would he care about the specifics of how they plan to have the money for him? I don’t ask my employer how they plan to pay my salary, I just expect it.

    Not the specifics as far as them having to cash in aluminum cans to pay his salary, lol, but the tv contract and their ability to not stop with him as far as building a contender. He's already mentioned Trout without mentioning his name. Wouldn't surprise me if he and Mike have talked in the past, and he feels that he does in fact won't to be nearer to where he grew up.

    Yeah, if they want to make a rule change, get rid of the fucking DH.

    lots of stupidity in MLB. For instance, the Mariners are in Japan for a couple of exhibition games against the Yomiuri Giants. Then in Arizona on Tuesday for a game against the Cubs. Then Tokyo for regular season games against the Athletics on Wednesday and Thursday, plus an exhibition game against the Reds on Thursday as well. Now the games against the Cubs and Reds are shown as split squad, but how split can they be as I think I read that the Mariners and Athletics took 28 players each to Japan (and why the games in Japan have to be regular season games makes no sense either, but it never has.) I think it's one thing to have split squad games when both halves of the team are in the same state (and really, the teams in Arizona are never that far from each other any way), but to have basically your Major League team in a foreign country and then whatever's left behind which probably includes players from the AA team as well as the majority of the AAA team (and I'm sure the fans get to pay a Major League price for those games - but then they do in Miami, too!) seems like a bad joke. I think there are beer league softball teams that are more serious about what they are playing for than MLB is right now.

    Mike Trout and Angels nearing agreement on 12 year, $430 million extension.

    That is insane. Trout is an amazing player, don't get me wrong. The problem is soon no one is going to be able to afford to go to games. Its already getting super expensive to take a family of 5.
