Rosenthal - Nationals vs Harper’s Bizarre Contract

Would YOU want to go to the mat against Bryce Harper?

At issue: Whether Harper is allowed to opt out of his deal and enter baseball’s arbitration system, enabling him to start negotiating higher salaries.

Either way, Harper is under the Nationals’ control for four more seasons. But millions hang in the balance, which is why both sides are bracing for a legal battle.

A battle that the Nationals, in particular, should do everything possible to avoid. Even if they hold the winning argument, they stand little to gain by antagonizing a potential franchise player.
