Bryce Harper Reportedly Turned Down "Aggressive Offer" From This MLB Team

Nationals want to re-sign star Bryce Harper Undeterred by last winter's free-agent freeze, Scott Boras...

On the last day of Washington's final homestand during the 2018 season, the Nationals reportedly offered Bryce Harper a contract extension worth $300 million over 10 years.

It looks like, as of now, the serious teams competing for Harper are the Phillies, the Giants, and the Cardinals.

Harper was publicly reminiscent and nostalgic on September 26, the Nationals' final home game of the season and reportedly the day he received the team's new offer. The deal would have been the second-richest in Major League Baseball history, trailing only Giancarlo Stanton's $325 million contract with the Miami Marlins signed in 2014, and the third-richest in sports history.

Of those only Logano was a factor as he led 54 laps. "That was really the only shot we had to beat him, to be honest with you". Also collecting stage points were Aric Almirola , Erik Jones , Kurt Busch , Daniel Suarez and Chase Elliott.

So where does that leave Harper and the Nationals now?

Indeed, the Nationals need starting pitching, a catcher and to upgrade their bench.

Harper did not accept the initial offer and the two parties could not reach a deal while the former MVP was still under contract with the Nationals, which meant Washington held exclusive negotiating rights with Harper until he hit the open market. It will cost them roughly $US13 million.

7-Eleven to pilot new Scan & Pay mobile checkout feature
According to 7-Eleven, customers gave the feature a high rating, with most customers rating it a 4.8 out of 5 for convenience. About 50% of the USA population lives within one mile of a 7-Eleven, the company said.

"I'm comfortable with the alternative (to signing Harper)", Rizzo said Tuesday.

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. "I think we have a good strategy in place, a good plan in place, and we have started to begin that process and we will see where it takes us".

Given Harper's history with the Nationals, he seems unlikely to make a deal elsewhere without first circling back. Zack Greinke ($34 million), David Price ($31 million) and Clayton Kershaw ($31 million) all got more.

Uganda begins Ebola vaccination for high-risk health workers
Meanwhile, Uganda will soon begin vaccinating frontline health workers against Ebola as the threat increases of the deadly virus. It will be the first time the vaccine is used in a country, not in the midst of an active Ebola outbreak.

Average annual value would have been $30 million, USA Today Sports's Bob Nightengale reports.
