Bryce Harper and his good friend Kris Bryant have several times winked at the possibility of Harper coming to the Chicago Cubs after the 2018 season, when he will be a 26-year-old free agent. Yes, please.
The reality is that money will do a lot of the talking, and it’s not a guarantee the Cubs will play in that stratosphere when the time comes (of course, I’d argue that you only get so many chances to get a generational superstar signed at age 26, so you figure out a way to get into that mix no matter what).
In any case, that’s a conversation for another day (basically the second the Cubs’ season ends … ), though Harper just couldn’t help but tease us a little more after the Nats’ NLDS win last night.
Hey, “next time” will actually be when he’s still with the Nationals, and lots of players really enjoy playing at Wrigley Field. So this doesn’t *mean* anything.
But it is nice to see him mentioning again that he’s a fan of Wrigley Field. Which is where the Chicago Cubs play their home games. So he could play there a lot more if he became a Cub. See how I connected those dots for you?
