Hittin’ Season #223: If no Machado & no Harper, then what for the Phillies?

If the Phillies don’t get Machado or Harper, who could they target in free agency or trades instead? On Episode 223 of “Hittin’ Season,” host John Stolnis talks about the antics of Manny Machado in the NLCS and what the Phillies should do if they choose not to sign him and fail to land Bryce Harper. Topics include: Why Machado’s antics in the NLCS, and his past in Baltimore, should force the Phillies to stay away from him in free agency this winter.

Hochman: Cardinals should go all out to sign Harper

Cardinals: Be fine with being the team that “blew it” with Bryce Harper because you overpaid and have him for a decaying decade … as opposed to the team that “blew it”with Harper because you didn’t.

Chicago Cubs: Pursuing Bryce Harper this winter is a no-brainer

I don’t care what it takes or the arguments against. When a generational talent like Bryce Harper hits the market, you do what you have to do to make it happen. In what will likely be a busy offensive season for the Chicago Cubs, all eyes have shifted to the front office to see if […] Chicago Cubs: Pursuing Bryce Harper this winter is a no-brainer - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - A Chicago Cubs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Wire Taps: Bryce Harper posted something on Instagram, OMG!! It’s a sign! Also some other Nationals links...

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Bryce Harper’s Instagram posts and Bryce Harper, Bryce Harper, Bryce Harper. So, yeah, Bryce Harper posted the picture above on Instagram with the words “Top Flight” and a plane emoji in his Instagram stories and the internet started speculatin’. He also had both Juan Soto and Victor Robles’s handles included in the pic. Did it mean something? Is it a sign that Harper’s staying in D.C. Has GM Mike Rizzo traded Adam Eaton yet? Jon Heyman did just write last week that there were rumors Eaton was available. It’s all starting to make sense now....

There is no good reason not to sign Bryce Harper or Manny Machado

There is no good reason not to sign Bryce Harper or Manny Machado

The Phillies should sign one of these guys if they can and there’s really no good argument to make against it. I am not a person who thinks this Phillies community should be one great, big, giant echo chamber. Different viewpoints, even those that are controversial and a little “out there” should always be welcomed. Life is boring when everyone agrees. There’s no spark to life otherwise, no juice, and sports was meant to be argued about (hopefully without one person throwing a beer at another), sometimes at loud volumes. But if you’re going to take a viewpoint that goes radically...

Top Five Washington Nationals moments from 2018 season

Top Five Washington Nationals moments from 2018 season

From Bryce Harper’s Home Run Derby heroics to Max Scherzer’s 300 K milestone, here are our top five moments from the 2018 season. Watching the MLB Postseason has given me a sick feeling, knowing the Washington Nationals had the potential to get there, but failed to meet expectations. The Nationals spent the majority of the season dealing with reoccurring injuries, roster changes and trying to stay above the .500 mark. Despite the Nationals’ struggles, there were still bright moments to take away from the 82-80 season. Here are my top five moments from the 2018 season. 1. Bryce...

St. Louis Cardinals: Making sense of the Bryce Harper buzz

The St. Louis Cardinals twitter community has been buzzing about the potential of signing Bryce Harper. This is largely thanks to BenFred and a tweet from five years ago, but it is intriguing none the less. Bryce Harper is, by all accounts, a superstar.

Phillies enter intriguing offseason with difficult roster decisions

Even before the Phillies decide whether Bryce Harper or Manny Machado makes more sense for them, they must make choices about several players already on the roster.

The “Bryce Harper would be a great fit for us!” stories are starting to pour in and the offseason hasn’t even officially started yet. Prepare yourself for the deluge...

There are already way too many teams and fans that think he would be a perfect fit for their team, and it’s only going to get worse when the World Series ends and the rumors really start flying...
