“Yeah, I mean I don’t really think about that stuff. I just try to play the years out and do everything I can to help my team win,” Harper said. “But don’t sell me short. That’s what you’re doing right now to me, so don’t do that.”There are plenty of haters who will jump all over Harper for this. He's likely being a little sarcastic.
“I’m looking forward to just playing this year, just looking forward to playing the next couple years,” he added. “And I think all that stuff will play out.”
But to his defense it's still a few years away and maybe at that time a $450 million contract makes sense. As much sense as paying someone that kind of money to play baseball can make.
