Harper spent his first season with the Phillies struggling with and .260 BA, 35 HRs and 114 RBIs. Not too bad, but for over 300 millions, you expect the best! Same thing happened with Machado in his first year with the Padres, with a .256 BA 32HRs and  RBIs.

But now, there's another story, and both players are having an amazing season, considering a 62 game season. Machado is hitting .294 BA, with 27 RBIs and 11 homers, just behind Fernando Tatis Jr. the young superstar from the Padres.

Harper's doing great too, hitting .320, 7 HRs and 20 RBIs, and with this, both players are aiming at an NL MVP award on their resume.

You know who has been terrific this yr: Bryce Harper/Manny Machado. After good (Harper) and meh (Machado) 1st yrs on their big fr agt deals, they have been among 10 best NL players in 2020, both over 1.000 OPS. And they are still just in their age-27 seasons. #Phillies #Padres
