Bryce Harper is no doubt one of the best players in the MLB right now, but had he gone mad. Bryce Harper is asking for a record breaking $400 million dollar contract that would exceed 10 years. The Nationals believe the negotiation is to big to overcome, so that means Harper may get traded. But who can afford to sign Harper for $400 million; The New York Yankees can. The Yankees have been in a rebuilding stage and Bryce Harper would be a perfect fit and they Yankees can afford him, they are one of the richest franchises. Will Bryce Harper get traded when his contract expires in 2018?
Chris Sale from the White Sox had been traded to the Red Sox. He will be switching sock colors this year. Chris Sale was traded in exchange for Yoan Moncada, Michael Kopech, Luis Basabe and Victor Diaz. That’s a pretty big trade, a 4 for 1 trade. That may seem a little outrageous but youre wrong, Chris Sale is a dominanting lefty who has been dominate in the MLB for years now. Chris Sale is one of the best pitchers in the MLB and is only getting better. In my book it was a good trade. The Red Sox pitching rotation this year will be unreal with Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello, and Klay Buckolts. That’s a solid rotation right there. The Red Sox fell short this year in the playoffs but don’t be shocked if they make it back and even farther this year now that they have Chris Sale.
One of the greatest pitchers on our time has passed away yesterday, early morning. He was involved in a boating accident in Miami, Florida, he was only 24. Jose Fernandez and his two other friends were killed going full speed on their 32-foot vessel that crashed into a jetty in Miami beach. Authorities say that Fernandez and his 2 other friends had no indication of drugs or alcohol in their system. Officials say that Fernandez died from impact, he did not drown. The baseball world lost an icon today, not only did Jose shine on the mound, he shined off the mound. Fernandez had a smile that shined so bright that you couldn’t resist smiling back. Jose will be missed in the baseball community.
