Guess saying dont be a dope was asking for too much around here.

For a staff member you sure don't lead by example

They want to stay under the luxury tax now, signing Harper will make that impossible. Verdugo will, as he's obviously a much cheaper option.

They reset their tax base last year. 

They are fine.

According to whom?  

Not anyone that actually follows the Dodgers for a living.  They would/will go over happily for the right player(s).

I'd expect a 12/13 yr 350-400 mil deal for Bryce Harper at any time.

Some caveats

There will probably be at least 1-2 opt outs.

The salary for this year will probably not be insane.

There will be some bigly incentives to take it from 350-400 total value.

Age 29-33 years will probably have an INSANE AAV.  

Bryce also wants to essentially go home.  Kris Bryant (if healthy) will join him in a couple of years.  Quote this and print it up in winter 2020.  

And then the long rumored tandem finally happens.

And Bryant is also a Boras client. So you're going to see him get a stupid big contract, especially given his accolades already.

If that tandem happens, you're getting two players with super hefty contracts, and, well, the rest of the team will suck unless the team is willing to go way over the tax.

Which they will be.  They kinda have the resources for it.  You act like the Dodgers are this poor small market team or something....

Bryce will be worth his contract easily.

I wish the Marlins could sign a guy like Harper.

What does that mean? A free agent? A guy who plays right field? A guy with the first name Bryce?
