Twitter Poll: Will Bryce Harper sign with Nats?

On Monday afternoon, I asked a question to my Twitter followers: Do you think the Nats will sign OF Bryce Harper? Yes or No? Why? It is unanimous. The fans and bloggers believe a deal will get done between the Harper and the Nats. 

@SodaPop6548: I think they will. The way I understand it, he wants to play so bad right now he can’t stand it.

@krypt0nate: He’ll sign because his stock will never be higher and 2011 is supposed to be a deeper draft.

@Jeffrey_Bergin: Absolutely. You don’t leave high school, get a GED and enter the draft at 17 to be J.D. Drew or Aaron Crow

@natcapskin: YES, WITHOUT QUESTION. He will sign for less than $10 million.

@JoeBHokie: Remember, Nats took Aaron Crow at 9 in 2008 and he didn’t sign. As compensation, Nats took Drew Storen at 10 in ’09. Crow to KC at 12 in ’09

@HappyGilmore233: yes

@Szul: I think they will. I believe he wants to play and play now.

@JoeBHokie: Yes, as the kid will lose a year of multi-million dollar earning power. No pressure on the Nats for a deal though, considering compensation pick next year.

@Natsnq: Yes. If they don’t, the Nats lose face and Harper is proved a liar because he obviously doesn’t want to play ball that badly.

@NatsEnquirer: Yes: Not doing deal would be very bad outcome for both sides. Bet you $1 it gets done several hours before deadline.

@Thebrowncoat: Of course they will. This is the standard game. Deal gets done at 11:59 p.m. tonight with about a $10 million signing bonus.

@eenyy820: Yes. He’s a Scott Boras client. Boras just wants more time to ask for as much money as possible

@orangepigon: Yes. Both sides would be dumb to not get a deal done.

@JFLANland: Yes. You don’t leave HS early just to go to JuCo. 2011 draft is deeper, no promise he’d be No. 1.

@TheNatsBlog: Yes. I think the real question is how much money. 

@md_schmidt: Yes. Nats definitely want him and I don’t think Harper’s career aspirations include more AB’s at the College of Southern Nevada. He signs.

@ndepetris: yes, but not if he is looking for a Stephen Strasburg contract. Strasburg was instant improvement. Harper is good but less vital or immediate help

@tbridge: Yes. Power numbers in wooden bat leagues too good to ignore. He has much to lose if he doesn’t. Deal will get done at 11:59:40.

@HendoDC: Yes. They both want it to happen.

@Sultan_of_Stat: I’d be surprised if he doesn’t sign. He has nothing to prove at CSN and his stock can only go down with another year in college.

@jeffdonald: They’ll get him. Risk of not signing is far greater for Harper than for the Nats.

@CapitolAvenue: Yes because Harper seems to want to play.

@Jake_Titleman39: He wouldn’t have left high school and gone through everything not to sign

Haha.. Its funny to see many conflicting answers. Quite surprising the way different people look at the same thing. Twitter pole was a very innovative idea which I liked a lot. When I want to guard their opinion on something, I’m surely going to use the same. Thanks for sharing this information and the idea too. – Jordan
