While outfielder Bryce Harper and third baseman Manny Machado both had to wait, they signed the biggest contracts this past MLB offseason with the Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres respectively. While both players have been productive this season, neither has put up the all-star caliber numbers we’ve grown accustomed to seeing. With the benefit of hindsight, SI Now’s Robin Lundberg and Ryan Asselta debate if they would do the contacts over again.
Is Bryce Harper finally living up to his $330 million deal?
Bryce Harper capped off a Philadelphia Phillies comeback last night with a walk-off grand slam against the Chicago Cubs. The win puts the Phillies a game back of the National League’s second wild-card spot, and Harper has slugged five home runs in his last seven games. While Harper has drawn a lot of criticism this season, SI Now’s Robin Lundberg and Ryan Asselta debate if it’s fair or foul.
