Eldredge is originally from Paris, IL. My g/f is his veterinarian here in town, she says he seems pretty cool on the surface. Terrible music though.

You're right.

My personal analysis: When the elbow goes past the midpoint of the torso from front to back (the imaginary line drawn from the armpit straight down to the top of the hip), you've surpassed the definition of a "bro hug" to something much more. Harper's right arm has clearly crossed that line and it appears Willy's right arm has done the same.

Clearly practicing for when they're teammates.

He called him “schwarbs” on sportscenter. Clearly they are best friends looking to have fun in the outfield together next year.

Harper lauded Schwarber and fellow NL teammate Javier Baez, who he called “one of my favorite players in all of baseball” for his flair.

“Just the way he plays, his swag and the way he plays the game, the way he uncoils and the way he thinks,” Harper said. “He told me up here before the thing, he says, "Hey, do you think if I get tired on the right side, I can hit on the left side?

“I was like, ‘Man, if you do that on the left side, that would be epic.’ I wish he would have gotten a little more tired because I would loved to have seen it. Just great being on the field and having a lot of fun being around the guys enjoying that.”

How dumb am I that I hope Harper signs elsewhere and the Cubs use the ~$350MM to address other holes and extend current players? That could get you 9 Tyler Chatwoods!

What does 2 months of 2018 Bryce Harper get on the open market next week? Is there any chance they'd consider trading him?

There's a lot more talk about this in the last couple of days. At least from media arguing whether they should or shouldn't. No real rumors or anything.

I still think for whatever reason, the Nationals chances of resigning him lessen if they trade him. It does occasionally happen but for every Chapman there are a few Lester situations where the incumbent team trades their guy with plans to resign him in the offseason and he goes elsewhere. With that said, I think by keeping him the chances of them resigning him are worth more than whatever return they can get for 2 months of him.

I guess it depends on if they think they have a good chance of re-signing him. I think he's probably gone, regardless. I have nothing to back up this opinion.

Honestly, if I were the Nats, why not get a silly amount of prospects and value here instead of like, a draft pick.

They still have a realistic shot at the playoffs but I’d do it

a few weeks ago, most probably thought the Nats would have caught the Phillies and Braves by now.
