They offered him s***ty deferred contracts and he took a good one. Why be mad at him? Be mad at your team for taking a good deal he deserved.

That's on ownership. If that second offer was real, they might as well whipped out their dicks and smacked him with them.

It’s even worse in light of this:

there comes a point where you got to ask how disrespected or "little money" they are getting and not be financially secure. Oh man if a 300mil contract doesn't set me for life, then l must be doing something wrong.

The issue is the language of the contract (with like over a third of it being deferred until Bryce was like 60) is such a sign of disrespect. They should have been honest with Bryce and just let him walk, but they get to tell their fans “hey we offered him $300 million and he left us for slightly more. Blame him!” And casuals and people like yourself will eat it up.

Can't blame them too much when even the tv broadcasters eat it up. Dodger broadcasters were just now talking about Harper getting booed, and one guy just said that was to be expected because the Nationals made "such a gallant offer" and Harper still chose to go elsewhere.
