The Phillies have already been extremely active this offseason, with the re-signing of Aaron Nola, the Phillies are seemingly going to keep their active offseason going. What better way than signing their face of the franchise to a even longer extension? That's exactly what might happen with Bryce Harper.
Bryce Harper has been a franchise changing player ever since signing his 13-year, $330 million contract back in 2019. Harper has been on record stating that he wants to play in Philadelphia the rest of his career. With plans of playing into his mid 40s, an extension would make that a reality.
Per Tim Kelly, the Phillies and Bryce Harper's camp are expected to pick up extension talks this offseason. In Harper's five years in Philadelphia, he has slashed .284/.395/.536 with 122 home runs. Harper has made an impact on not just the Phillies franchise, but on the city itself. An extension would just be the icing on the cake to the fairy tale between Harper and the franchise.
