Indians manager Terry Francona on Bryce Harper signing with the Phillies after Manny Machado joined the Padres: “I think the National League is to be commended. I think it’s wonderful.”— Mark Feinsand (@Feinsand) February 28, 2019
Not everyone's reactions were positive, however ...
Holy shit balls @Bharper3407 may hit 75 in that bandbox. And he better, or every @Phillies asshole fan will boo him. Can’t imagine 13 years in Philadelphia. Bryce will have gray hair by 30. Good luck young man! @MLB @SFGiants https://t.co/BaJHRFnsZz— AUBREY HUFF (@aubrey_huff) February 28, 2019
Naw man I don’t care one bit where he ended up. I understand not all Phillies fans are assholes. But in my experience I’ve never met more moronic pieces of shit that go way below the belt on talking shit to players. When families are involved in shit talking that’s over the line— AUBREY HUFF (@aubrey_huff) February 28, 2019
Not only did Harper sign with the Phillies for 2019, but 12 seasons after that, too. Get excited, Philadelphia.
