Bryce Harper signed with the Philadelphia Phillies this past Thursday. He agreed to the richest deal in MLB history by agreeing to a 13-year, $330 million deal.

This new deal does not include any opt-outs or deferred money. That means that Harper will be with the team for the long-haul.

However, during his introductory press conference to the media on Saturday in Clearwater, Florida, Harper made a blunder. Instead of saying he wanted to bring a title to Philadelphia, he slipped and said D.C.

He was referring to his former home in Washington, D.C. with the Washington Nationals. He declared he wanted to ‘bring a title to D.C.’

The 26-year-old spent seven seasons with the Nationals, before signing with the Phillies.

New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard — who is going to face Harper many times with the Phillies in the upcoming season — has taken a shot at Harper. He did it via an Instagram post.

He seems to be excited to be able to post Harper more that he remained in the National League East.

Syndergaard and the Mets get their first shot at the new-look Phillies in Philadelphia, Pa. from April 15-17. One week later, Harper and his new teammates travel to Flushing, New York to take on the Mets at Citi Field from April 22-24.
