A little dig at the Washington Nationals from Bryce Harper? This is what he answered when asked whether it was good for homegrown stars to remain with the same team: "If any other guy can really do that, stick with one team for his whole career, it has to work on both sides. The Angels were able to make that happen. Colorado was able to make that happen for (Nolan) Arenado. When you're able to do that, it's special. If you're able to spend it with one team, it's very special. It's good for each organization. It's good for the game to be able to get a superstar player like that the amount of money that he got, and (Trout) is very deserving of that."
