Bryce Harper wants Le'Veon Bell to join him in Philadelphia

Posted March 03, 2019

Not even 24 hours after agreeing to a 13-year, $330 million contract to play for the Philadelphia Phillies, Bryce Harper has already begun recruiting other star athletes to the City of Brotherly Love.

According to updated odds at BetOnline.AG, the Phillies now have the third best odds to win the World Series this season, trailing online the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox.

He would get $500,000 if he is league MVP, $50,000 for finishing second in the voting and $25,000 for third.

"They're diehard fans and they follow the Phillies, this is just great news for springs to come, for us to have full houses at Spectrum Field", said Mayor George Cretekos.

Barring any significant injuries, Harper could have easily surpassed the $330 million over 13 years if he had taken the Dodgers' offer, then inked another lucrative deal once it expired. Such a rate would cost Harper about $2.3 million per year in taxes - or about $29 million in taxes over the course of his Phillies' deal.
