Bryce Harper, Manny Machado Both Prefer Not To Sign With Phillies 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Dec 28, 2018 2:55 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies have been planning for this offseason for years and are loaded with money to pursue free agents.

Both Bryce Harper and Manny Machado have received interest from the Phillies, but word is neither player particularly likes Philadelphia. Furthermore, Harper and Machado both would have preferred to sign with the New York Yankees.

The Yankees have shown little interest in signing Harper.

Forget the Phillies, come to the Mets, Bryce!!! Machado is a slouch, send him to the Yankees.

"but word is neither player particularly likes Philadelphia."


What word? Whose word? What are your sources?

I don't mind a little clickbait, but realgm. com shouldn't be wasting our time like this. We have enough fake news in the world.

I think the idea that both hate Philly and love New York, coming from a NY Post reporter, might be a little self-serving conjecture on the reporter's part.

I also realize, on the whole, players would typically rather be in LA or NY than anywhere else.
