Bryce Harper signed the sport’s most powerful agent for a reason. When the off-season began, no one thought Bryce Harper and Manny Machado would still be unsigned as spring training opened. Surely the Phillies would have offered the type of deal either player would have jumped at long before pitchers and catchers reported to Clearwater, and Phils fans would have spent a fun off-season talking about all the brand new toys general manager Matt Klentak piled up in the home team’s clubhouse. But here we sit, on Valentine’s Day, 2019, and Harper and Machado are still unsigned. Not only...
