Bryce Harper Hit A Massive HR In A Simulation Game Today

Bryce Harper Hit A Massive HR In A Simulation Game Today

Phillies: Sign Bryce Harper, David Robertson and Andrew McCutchen; trade for Jean Segura and J.T. Realmuto.

Given the measure of Harper's new contract, it is unlikely Major League Baseball could dish out a fine that truly would detract Harper from continuing to pursue Trout. But the fans will have to be the one to tell Trout.

The newly-minted Philadelphia Phillies star made headlines this weekend when at his introductory press conference said he plans on recruiting Mike Trout to join in him in Philadelphia when the Angels' star hits free agency after the 2020 season.

Harper - who signed a 13-year, $330m deal with the Phillies last week - reiterated on Wednesday that he meant what he said while discussing Trout. He mentioned at the time "another guy in about two years that comes off the books", which everyone understood to be a sly reference to Los Angeles Angels slugger and Philadelphia-area native Mike Trout.

Harper said Wednesday he hasn't spoken with MLB about his comments, which could be a violation of the league's tampering rules. He had no further comment on the matter.

Last month, BetaKit reported on QuadrigaCX's series of troubles , which have sent the cryptocurrency community into a tailspin. Ernst & Young says it has hit roadblocks when it tried to analyze platform data that underpins Quadriga's exchange.

On Tuesday, Phillies recruit Harper said, "If you don't think I'm gonna call Mike Trout to come to Philly in 2020, you're crazy". He implied the Phillies have spoken to him, but not Major League Baseball, according to ESPN.

"I can say: 'Hey, this is the place to be".

With Harper moving to Philadelphia from the Washington Nationals, speculation immediately started around the possibility of Trout joining the six-time All-Star at the Phillies. "If you don't want to come to Philly, then don't come". "I can really put that faith in myself in being able to say we are able to go about it the right way, we are the Philadelphia Phillies and we want whoever wants to come to Philly. I don't think [team owner] John [Middleton] is scared to go out and get the best guys that we need to have".

"I thought he was going to end up playing with me this year", Ortiz told the Boston Herald of Fernandez in the summer of '16. Manfred said he didn't want to see the same thing happen in baseball.
