The Bryce Harper to the Phillies deal isn't even official yet, but it appears the former MVP is already recruiting stars to Philadelphia as promised.
Just not necessarily for the Phillies, per se.
That's if former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell Instagram stories are to be taken at face value.
Bell hasn't been shy about his public flirting with the Eagles, hoping Howie Roseman's club make an offer to the dynamic running back. Bell flirted again on Friday, this time in Bryce Harper's direction in his IG story.
Bell shared a story about Harper signing with the Phillies that also said it's LeVeon's turn next. Bell added "Philly going crazy right now" and sent congrats in Harper's direction.
Then Bell shared what appears to be an amazing DM from Bryce Harper's account:
Aye come join! Let's take this city by storm. Bring as many titles as we can to the greatest city in the world. Brotherly Love. #securethebag
Bring all the bags to Philadelphia, I say.
Other Philly athletes like Alshon Jeffery and Ben Simmons have also tweeted about Philly being the place to be slash greatest sports city in world.
Somewhere, Mike Trout is reading all of this while wearing his Eagles pajamas.
Here's a look at the amazing IG story:

More on the Phillies
Yes, we’re missing our nightly puck drops, tip-offs and first pitches. But, don’t forget our beloved mascots of Brotherly Love also affected by the pause in the sports world.
As we do our best to pass the time, let’s look back at Gritty, Franklin and the Phillie Phanatic’s Instagram feeds for isolation inspiration.
*Swoop, we love you — we just have ways away before kickoff. Plus, you also don’t have an Instagram.
Have a photoshoot
Franklin ‘Fit Check
Put that self-timer on your phone to good use.
Just be mindful of what you decide to post.
Have a dance party
Dance like nobody’s watching.
As much as we love a properly executed Kid ‘n Play, maybe pass on the dance duets. Or maybe take a page out of Matisse Thybulle’s book, Franklin.
Chat with your Pet
They don’t require toilet paper and are pretty good listeners.
Read a Book (Or Two)
Follow along with Tobias Harris, if you’re feeling up for it.
Design a tattoo
Perhaps modeled after some of our furry mascot friends?
At Home Makeover
Try out a new look or two for your post-isolation debut.
Hopefully, you’re friends will be supportive, too.
Find your zen.
Maintain Proper Hygiene
We would not recommend hiding in a trashcan during this time.
Practice Social Distancing
A+ for content, F for social distancing.
Clearly, they need to work on that — but hopefully now you have some ideas to fill the days.
Stay safe out there, folks.
Is there anything more Philly than a Philadelphia Parking Authority violation?
There is no greater sadness than walking out to your car, spotting that slim white and blue envelope on the front window from the distance, and just knowing it signifies: they got you.
To those of us whom have fought this long battle, we salute you. While the PPA may have temporarily suspended some of their violations, we know it's only a matter of time before they emerge back and stronger than ever.
So, we've decided to create this handy little quiz for you to determine your Philly athelete personality, depending on the type of violation you will likely recieve next.
