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 they will make any big splashes this offseason.

We’ve already seen hitting coach Chili Davis hit the road, and fans wonder if this is just the beginning of a flurry of moves to help this team get back into World Series contention.

Of course, at the head of all this discussion is superstar Bryce Harper. With this obviously comes a lot of speculation. Would his big attitude fit in the Cubs clubhouse? Would he be worth big money after a season hitting just .249? What happens to the rest of the outfield if the Cubs do sign him?

With all of the questions floating around, here are three reasons, aside from a financial standpoint, why the Cubs should make a strong push to sign Bryce this offseason.
