Phillies Reportedly Showing “Exploratory Interest” in Kris Bryant

Jake Roth - USA Today Sports

Last night the Dodgers and Red Sox pulled off a blockbuster move that sent Mookie Betts and David Price to Los Angeles. The Phillies, meantime, were busy acquiring Anthony Swarzak on a minor league deal, which was met with the appropriate grumbles.

Are the Phils going to continue dumpster diving looking for value in the margins? Or do they have something else up their sleeve this offseason? Bob Nightengale:

Not sure what “at least exploratory interest” means, but at least the Phillies are linked to a big name in Bryant. The 28-year-old, three-time All Star is set to become a free agent after the 2021 season after recently losing his service time grievance.

Bryant is friends with Bryce Harper, so putting those guys together on the same team would make a lot of sense. Here’s Mike Lowell talking about a Phillies lineup with Bryant, on MLB Network:

Hmm, yes. I, too, like that lineup.

There’s only one thing for John Middleton to do. He needs to go out and get Kris Bryant and pay the tax and make this team into a juggernaut in order to get his fucking trophy back.

    1. easy for you to say…you probably drive to Bensalem to buy your soda so you don’t have to pay tax in Philly

    1. last night? what about Tuesday night? I literally saw some A$$clown on CNN trying to analyse the “caucus” results in Iowa while he was staring at a map of Iowa with 0% votes in…..and each candidate listed with 0% next to their names……and this was at 10:00 after the polls had been closed for hours!!! I read that both Hilary and Nancy were part of the company that sold the voting machines (that didn’t work!)
