Bryce Harper said he was not jealous of his former nationals of the franchise nationals in his first World League.
“Not very jealous,” Harper said with the athletic after the Nationals of Cardinals were swept in the NLCS.
Instead the polarizing superstar supported his debate with the Phillies, who walked to the end and lost the season as the Nationals emerged.
“It's where I wanted to be,” said Harper to Philly, who offered him the most money.
Successfully Pick No. 1 in the 2010 MLB draft extended 10 years, $ 300 million to Washington last winter and signed with Philadelphia for 10 years, $ 330 million.
Harper said that he is not “saying to me,” From my bondage, I do not believe that I am a national. ”Or,` Oh my bondage, those guys are doing what they are doing. I can't believe it. I'm so jealous. No. I'm so happy for them. You know how difficult it is to enter the mail season and win games. To be able to put it together this year in the way they are, it's a great thing. ”
Harper succeeded, after years after reaching heartbreak, the way to settle for Juan Soto, who is 20 years old, a star in the outside, Anthony Rendon's third baseman to face the staff and Nationals to mitigate their strong rotation by signing Patrick Corbin to a $ 140 million six-year market.
Meanwhile, Harper met 35 towns and 114 RBI in the first season with the Phillies, which finished fourth in the East NL.
