Bryant just said Harper isn't signing with the Cubs. Can we give up this absurd fantasy already?

He also added him and Bryce don’t talk about free agency. So how would he know?

So you're saying there's a chance?

So I see the "Bryce Signing Announcement" about this time tomorrow.

BUT....

If for some odd reason he signs elsewhere, it's going to absolutely glorious when the Cubs players in 2019 perform and over perform (as opposed to much of the under performing last season), and they dominate the National League by becoming the dong masters, defensive geniuses and all-around likable guys en route to their second WS victory in a five year span. Yep, gonna be delicious!!

Him saying they don't talk about it is nonsense. He's being a good friend and shutting up. Have to love the subtle jab at MLB owners for it being weird only 3-4 teams being inerested in generational talents.

Whatever the season brings, it can’t be as awful as this interminable offseason. Every second of this has sucked.

Didn’t someone say we weren’t even on the board earlier this week? Not that they’re great odds but at least we’re back on

Situation reminds me, vaguely, of the Pujols situation several years ago. IIRC, Pujols had an offer from the Cardinals, the Angels topped it by a fair amount, and Pujols kept waiting and hoping the Cardinals would come back in. Sure feels like the Phillies have offered something significantly higher than the Nationals have offered, and it sure doesn't feel like there's a lot more teams out there waiting in the winds. It'll probably come down to whether or not the Nationals can come close enough and ... maybe ... whether or not Ted Lerner decides to step in, despite handing things off.

If he goes back to the Nationals, it wouldn't surprise me if it's a superbly complex deal with player options and team options mixed in, along with deferrals. Much as I've thought the Nationals all off-season ... I think I'm leaning towards the Phillies getting him. It's hard to see Middleton going back to the fan base with say, Keuchel/Kimbrel and calling it a big offseason after his comments.

Until he signs elsewhere I still believe he will be a Cub. I’m going to speak it into existence.

HE WILL BE A CUB THIS SEASON, DAMMIT!

i'll never understand these guys. i understand wanting attention, but what kind of attention are they really getting? they're an anonymous handle on the internet typing things. where is the satisfaction? like do they get hard when they see someone reply to something they just made up? i don't understand the endgame.

I think they're hoping that when they accidentally get something right, they can parlay it into a real gig.
