Who knows what Bryce Harper will do when he becomes a free agent after the 2018 season? Bryce himself doesn't, even if his own social media post last month seemed to be dropping hints.
Harper's Instagram post during the Cubs-Nationals series went viral when he posed for a picture with friend Kris Bryant and their wives, using the hashtag, "#Back2BackOneDay."
Whether Harper, a Rookie of the Year, MVP and perennial All-Star winds up in Chicago remains to be seen. But that Instagram post? Just some fun trolling.
“I do that to the media because they stir it more than I do," Harper told The Washington Post. "That’s why I do the things I do at times, because it’s funny to me. It’s like, ‘All right, people want to talk about this and talk about that. Why not just throw this out there and make them think about it?’ ”
Thanks for keeping us honest, Bryce. It wasn't the first time Harper had been linked to the Cubs. Longtime baseball writer Peter Gammons told 670 The Score that "I have people tell me that Bryce Harper really would prefer to play for the Cubs."
As for that? Harper told The Post "I love Peter Gammons. One of the best baseball historians ever. But I have no idea what the hell he's talking about."
Until then, continue to speculate. It's more fun anyway.
