Bryce Harper rejected contract offer from Nationals

In the meantime, Harper will continue to field offers from other teams in hopes of landing a record-setting deal.

Wherever Harper ends up, we know there's one place he won't land: NY.

Charlie Nicholas states his prediction for Red Star Belgrade v Liverpool FC
He was fined for making the sign, and booed by the visiting Red Star supporters during the previous game at Anfield two weeks ago. We have to make sure you can not ask that question again. "We will talk about that but tonight we can't change it".

The Los Angeles Dodgers are usually in contention when it comes to signing the top free agents on the market, and that may be the case with Bryce Harper this winter. Giancarlo Stanton signed a 13-year, $325 million deal with the Marlins, but now has $270 million remaining over the next 10 years following his trade to the Yankees.

It gained even more traction earlier this week when Harper's agent, Scott Boras, told MLB Network Radio that the 26-year-old right fielder would be a more-than-capable first baseman. Nightengale now says that the Dodgers aren't interested in Harper, and the Cubs, ironically, seemed to put a dent in their chances to be able to afford Harper when they exercised Cole Hamels' $20 million option for 2019 last week.

Lowes Closing Three St. Louis Area Stores
Lowe's stock price closed at $96.82 per share on Monday, Nov. 5, up from $77.41 a year ago, a almost 25 percent increase. The most store closures will occur in Ontario , including in cities such as Sault Ste.

Since Harper was under contract with the Nationals at the time, they had exclusive rights to negotiate with him. He's looking to land something worth $400 million, which would be the richest baseball contract ever, by far.

"I'm comfortable with the alternative (to Harper re-signing)", Rizzo added. That Nationals offer may be off the table in its current form, but Boras rarely lets a high-spending team drop out of the race for a high-priced client. "But I'm uncomfortable with the statement that we're a better team without him". The Nationals reportedly made Harper a huge long-term offer at the end of the regular season, but he declined it.

Philip Rivers Gets It Done Against Seahawks
Chargers kicker Caleb Sturgis might be looking for a new job after missing two extra points and a 42-yard field goal attempt. Philip Rivers was the offensive standout of the match for the Chargers, as he passed for 306 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Importantly for any future negotiations, Harper's deal would not be the largest in baseball history by average annual value.
