PErsonally, I wish Harper no ill-will (obviously), but professionally, since he went to the Filthies, I hope he hits .240 every year with continued poor defensive metrics.

Honestly had he chased the money anywhere outside of the NL East, I would have a lot less problems with it. Going to the Phillies ... well, good luck with that.

I know we’re supposed to be diplomatic about this but I cannot imagine disliking an athlete anymore in my lifetime than as I do Harper. I wish I was more like Jeezy to where I wish him no ill will but I hope his team sucks forever and he’s stuck there and can’t leave.

The opposite of love is not hate. Hate means you still care about the person/thing, and how they are/it is doing (even if it is negative). No, the opposite of love is indifference.

Investing any emotion (especially negative emotions) in Harper isn't worth your time. He's gone to chase the money. Okay then. Have fun with the Philly fans when they turn on you. Not our problem.

This is why I’ve always thought it was crap when players ***** about fans being emotional or booing. The fans are so much more loyal to the team than the players. When the players are long gone or they pull a Harper guess who’s still going to be there....the fans. 

My favorite part is them complaining about the Lerners offer now and how insulting it was because it had deferred money but either way he was going to receive annually about the same as what he just got from the Phillies and then on top of it he’d be paid for what? Another 10 years after? How is that a bad deal? Do you think Bobby Bonilla is hating his deferred payments?

You misunderstand me. At a human level, I have no ill will towards Harper, but at a baseball level, I hope that he’s an albatross and the Filthies never win anything.

It was caught up on the Harper drama, but I think the Nats had a very good offseason. They addressed most of their major area of need. Hopefully we’ll be blessed with decent health for the key guys, and can bounce back this season.
