Bryce Harper: The Nationals gave 17-year-old Bryce Harper – who left high school two years early to play at a junior college just to make it to the Bigs – a $9.9 million deal one minute before the midnight deadline. Sure, Harper – who wears that juvenile Ultimate Warrior eye black – tore up some high school pitching and then dominated the JUCO ranks … but a $6.25 million signing bonus? “It’s the biggest contract for a hitter, eclipsing the $9.5 million of Mark Teixeira nearly a decade ago, and is second overall to Strasburg’s $15.1 million deal last year. One year after he could legally drive, four before he can legally drink, Harper’s checking account will include a $6.25 million signing bonus (minus Boras’ fees, of course) and plenty more from endorsements,” writes Yahoo’s Jeff Passan. Washington’s giddy over its three young studs … but the guess here is that Harper is a bust. [Post]
