South Jersey product and noted Philly sports fan Mike Trout, who also happens to be the greatest baseball player on the planet, was asked about Bryce Harper’s free agency process and had this to say:

Trout is happy for Harper, Philly will love him if he plays hard, and some “aw shucks” stuff about his own impending free agency after the 2020 season.
Perhaps more of note is this:
Mike Trout said he does not want to negotiate an extension during spring training or the regular season over the next two seasons before his contract expires. That means that, if the Angels were to extend him before he hits free agency, that would come next offseason.

That, friends, is a guy that wants to leave his options open. A guy who could be easily sold, particularly by someone who is ready to sell:
The lack of an opt-out clause in Bryce Harper's deal was a surprise, and yes: He got a record $330M because of its exclusion. But Harper was clear: He wants to recruit players to join him in Philly, and saying he controls his ability to stay there for 13 years is quite powerful.

While I swore to myself yesterday that I would take a break from obsessing over what could be for at least a day or two, that’s just not going to happen. Not after this spicy little buffalo nugget from Jim Bowden, which you can listen to after the jump.
I dare you not to soil yourself.

Harper. Trout. LeVeon Bell. Bring me all of them. What are these feelings that I feel? Is this…could it be…happiness?
Saw pics on Kinker’s twitter yesterday of him in shorts playing soccer. Yikes! Guess there is something to then whole “tiny feet, tiny package” thing. Kyle and Kinker look about as well hung as a Ken Doll. Are all CB bloggers poorly hung? I gotta think Ant San has beer can girth but after seeing Kink’s pics I’m no longer sure.
Don’t insult me. I’ve seen what the Kinker packs, and let’s just say I only need to pull out enough to win…
Leslie Gudel has a bigger stick than Kinker.
I have a boner, right Ritchie?
Kyle should never show himself below the waist. His bulge is so small.
Cuz was going absolutely nuts today . Cuz has the finger on the pulse of the city . Love the cuz!!
No one suggested Harper’s Ho’s. A collection of college girls from Gwynedd Mercy.
I am so excited for Brandon Graham’s return.
Went from the hottest ticket in town too the coldest ticket in town.

And guess which network is paying the Phils $2.5 billion over 25 years to carry their games. I’ll give you a hint. It starts with an N and ends with a C.
Why the fuck do you care ? Choad.
