Does Bryce Harper even have a case for getting paid as much as or more than Machado?

That's a whole other discussion which I think was touched on in another thread. IMO Machado is the better gamble when you just compare the two.

Not even after the scrappy white guy premium?

This is the wrong thread, but if $300/10 is the going rate for premium players, then the Cardinals should go out of their way to extend Goldschmidt for 5 years before he hits the market. I get the age thing, but Machado will be making $30M when he turns 37.

Yes. I think Harper is going to be a superior hitter and have better defense at their respective positions, which overcome Machado being slightly higher on the defensive spectrum.
