Yikes!

Not as good as the originally rumored deal of $350 for 10.

Can you even imagine how much Philly is going to regret this in Year 7, to say nothing of Year 13?  I get that you pay a premium for the productive years up front and then take a hit on the back-end, but this is crazy.  With all the talk about downward spirals of veterans after age 33, Harper is definitely not one of those guys who is going to reverse that trend.

The National league will have the DH within 2 to 3 years max. He can DH in his mid 30's on.
