Chicago Cubs: Would landing Shohei Ohtani stop pursuit of Bryce Harper?
Let me tell you ’bout my best friend
There’s no denying the friendship between Harper and Kris Bryant. They’re both from Las Vegas, so that’s to be expected. But we can’t help but notice that Harper seems to really like Chicago. He named his dog Wrigley for crying out loud.
That makes perfect sense for me (although I named mine Skylar for my love of the Irish. My cat was named Addison), but really? I guess you can’t name your dog Nationals Park, so I give him some leeway on that.
But now to the skinny of it. If the Cubs score Ohtani, will that change how they go after Harper? First off, the Cubs have never said they would chase him in free agency. But it just seems to write itself with everything that’s happened. Even if Harper doesn’t plan on coming to Chicago, that would just mean he’s trolling Cubs’ fans … and hard.
