Bryce Harper congratulated his former teammate Anthony Rendon on his Instagram story on Wednesday night after the latter reportedly agreed to a seven-year, $245 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels.
Harper left the Nationals prior to the start of the 2019 season to join the Phillies on a 13-year, $330 million contract.
It's worth noting that in the picture Harper used, there is no mention of the Nationals. Was it intentional?
Both Harper and Rendon are represented by Scott Boras, who has been having a terrific week after securing a deal for Rendon. Not to mention Stephen Strasburg's extension with the Nationals, as well as the newest member of the Yankees' rotation, Gerrit Cole.

Still to come: Ryu, Castellanos, Keuchel.
Rendon will team up with Mike Trout in Anaheim, who is definitely on board with the new contract signing.
