Do we have a tally for how many twists and turns this Bryce Harper chronicle has entailed?
A report broke Thursday that the Dodgers still had intentions to sign Harper, but that they were still only looking to link a short-term deal with the superstar free agent.
Now, Los Angeles has reportedly offered the 26-year-old a 10-year contract believed to be worth north of $300 million.
Sources: #Dodgers offered Bryce Harper a 10-year deal. Terms as far as money are unknown but I got to believe it’s more than $300 mil but still this is big considering #SFGiants and #Phillies have reportedly also offered Bryce 10-years as well— Chris Camello (@Chris_Camello) February 28, 2019
It's important to note that Chris Camello isn't as renowned of a reporter as the likes of Jeff Passan, Buster Olney, Ken Rosenthal and Jon Heyman to name a few.
He did follow up his report, however, in typical honest journalistic fashion to inform his followers that this report wasn't exactly set in stone just yet given the fact that the Dodgers previous interest involved short term intentions.
Just an FYI this isn’t a guarantee. I want that to be clear. However considering the #Dodgers wanted to keep it short term originally, this is a significant move to even offer 10 years. We shall see what happens tomorrow or Friday https://t.co/TRyRHkKcNE— Chris Camello (@Chris_Camello) February 28, 2019
