Bryce Harper... to the Mets?!?!

Bryce Harper... to the Mets?!?!

by Tim Reilly November 28, 2018 0 Comments

You can get dizzy from reading the endless barrage of offseason rumors and rumblings as the Hot Stove begins to heat up.

The latest for the Mets? They’re interested in Bryce Harper.

From the NY POST:  “The Mets are also monitoring the Bryce Harper market: Van Wagenen has made it clear, according to sources, that he is interested in the All-Star outfielder, but there is skepticism within the industry that team owner Fred Wilpon would approve an outlay of $300 million-plus for that type of acquisition.”

Well, that certainly would be a splash… 

Let’s get a pulse on what those who cover the team and fans think about this: 

Heyman’s guest spots on WFAN are under-the-radar great segments in the offseason.

Martino just had to be a buzzkill.

Gabe wants the Mets to be a credible team again!

Dammit, fake Ken! Get lawst with these imposter accounts.

Well, Charity, the Mets wouldn’t have to trade for Harper. So, your daughter’s name is safe…for now.

40 home runs next season will change these callers’ tone real quick…

Smart man, Darren. I think the vast majority of the fan base falls into this line of thinking. I could see someone making a t-shirt or two with his likeness.

For me, this is nothing more than a pipe dream. I’m in the “I’ll believe it when I see it” camp when it comes to the Mets being linked to a free agent of Bryce Harper’s magnitude. One thing’s for certain, a Harper signing changes the perception of the Mets as a franchise, and fast.

I’d take Harper on the Mets in a heartbeat. I also don’t intend to waste a single heartbeat thinking this will actually happen…
