Bryce Harper someday joining the Cubs has been prime speculation fodder this summer.
But does Harper know something we don't?
The Washington Nationals superstar — who's slated to become a surely record-breaking free agent after the 2018 season — posted a picture of him and fellow Las Vegas native Kris Bryant on Instagram after Tuesday night's game between the Cubs and Nationals in the nation's capital.
A nice picture, sure. But the important part is the hashtags, one of which is #Back2BackOneDay.
Oh really, Bryce?
Is baseball's biggest star hinting at a potential future in a Cubs uniform, batting right behind Bryant, the Cubs' current All-Star third baseman and reigning National League MVP?
Let the speculation train continue to roll down the tracks. Harper's certainly providing enough energy.
MLB will once again commemorate several holidays and special events during the 2018 season.
Monday, the league revealed the uniforms teams will don on Jackie Robinson Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and during Memorial Day weekend and Independence Day weekend.
The Cubs' regular uniforms are great, of course, but their special event uniforms are solid as well. Take a look:
Not too shabby, eh? In addition to the special caps and jerseys, MLB teams will be rocking unique socks and patches for each occasion. A complete collection of the uniforms can be found here.
The MLB regular season is still 13 days away, but Willson Contreras is ready for the swings to count.
The Cubs catcher hit an absolute bomb of a homer Friday afternoon off White Sox pitcher Reynaldo Lopez, but it wasn't just a homer.
Contreras put an exclamation mark on the dinger (his third of the spring and the second this week) with an A+ bat flip:
I'm not sure what's more majestic: The 450-foot shot or the 45-foot bat-flip.
Either way, Contreras is ready for those 2018 NL MVP votes.
