Bryce Harper is officially on the clock.
It took until the first week of spring training, but one of MLB’s big free agency dominoes has fallen as Manny Machado has reportedly agreed to a 10-year, $300-million (yes, $300 million) contract with the San Diego Padres.

Here are some of the best reactions:
