The Phillies have finally landed Bryce Harper as the two sides agreed to a 13-year, $330 million contract, the largest deal in baseball history. The star outfielder, who had spent his entire career with the Nationals, topped the $325 million, 13-year agreement Giancarlo Stanton reached with the Marlins before the 2015 season. Harper’s agreement surpasses the previous high for a free agent, the $300 million, 10-year deal Manny Machado signed with the Padres last week.
