Bryce Harper Is Not Worth 330 Million What Are The Phillies Thinking

No matter what anyone thinks Bryce Harper is not worth 330 Million dollars. His contract is worth more then what the Boston Red Sox spend to win the World Series last season. The Milwaukee Brewers only spent 108 million to make the playoffs. I just think the Philadelphia Phillies could have spent money more wisely than on Harper.

Is Bryce Harper a supreme talent? The truth is he is very talented, but he also has his drawbacks as a player. He sometimes is all about himself and not the team. Yes, Harper is talented, but you have to outweigh the negatives as well. The Phillies were willing to bet on Harper, but I think 330 million is way too much for a player who can be a problem sometimes.

I guess only time will tell if Harper was worth that kind of money. He will need to produce quickly and often to justify his huge contract. I just do not see it happening, but I have been wrong before so only time will tell.

Kentucky Dominates Tennessee But Are They For Real?

Everyone wanted to see how good Tennessee was, or if they were just a poll team that has gotten lucky most of the season. The truth is Tennessee is a good basketball team, but last night Kentucky was better. The game was in Rupp Arena before a prime time audience and Kentucky, in reality, had more on the line then the Vols. Kentucky is trying to catch Tennessee in the standings so a loss would have ended that for them.
PJ Washington had a huge game for the Wildcats, but it was Kentucky's defense that showed up big. They scrambled for the loose balls and did not give The Vols a chance to make deep runs at them. Kentucky showed that they can beat anyone if they come to play as a team. The real issue for the Wildcats is they do not give the same play game after game. They have been inconsistent at times during the season and that has hurt them.
Give the Wildcats credit as they played well for most of the game, but if they want to cut down the nets they must play like this all the time. Coach Cal knows if you want to be National Champions you cannot play inconsistent basketball. It will be interesting to see how Kentucky plays rest of the season. This was a great win, but they must build on it and play like this every game.

Do You Really Want Antonio Brown On Your Team?

It looks like Antonio Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to have a messy break-up, didn't we all really expect that to happen anyways. Pittsburgh stands to get a good haul for a trade, but what team is willing to take on Brown and his baggage. I'm sure there will be a long list of teams who want him, but many who will stay far away.

Brown is a player that when on the field is one of the best wide receivers in the league. With that also comes the other issues such as a diva on and off the field as well. There will be times where he will publicly cause a scene and could divide the locker room. This is something that most teams will not want no matter the talent level.

The team that trades for Antonio Brown will have a solid locker room where they will not let Brown drive a wedge between them. The quarterback also will need to have a thick skin as Brown will point fingers if the ball does not come his way a lot. Brown is super talented, but in the end, is it worth the added headaches. I think lot's of teams will pass on Brown, but some will jump at the chance to trade for him.
