The Phillies did not qualify for the playoffs and his former team is headed to the World Series for the first time in franchise history, less than one year after he left them in free agency. Even still, Harper says he has no regrets or hard feelings about leaving the Washington Nationals after seven seasons for his record-setting contract.
Not to mention, it was the Nationals who eliminated the Phillies from playoff contention on Sept. 24th, where fans would boo Harper before each at-bat.
“They made their decision, and I made my decision as well,” Harper said. “I made the best decision for my family. And I am so happy to be in Philly. It’s the place that I wanted to be.”
“I made my decision, and that was my decision,” Harper added. “And it was the final decision that I made. You know, jealousy isn’t good. For me, it’s about having the gratitude to go out and do what I do each day and not having an attitude towards anybody else.”
Harper finished his first season in Philadelphia hitting .260 with 35 home runs and 114 RBIs.
