Nelly Pleads St. Louis Cardinals to Sign Slugger Bryce Harper

Cubs fans, the Chicago media and national baseball writers have all been conditioned to never underestimate team president Theo Epstein, always anticipating the next bold move and another big name on the Wrigley Field marquee.

".I'm here with the hottest free agent to be, my man Bryce Harper", Nelly said while bringing an awkward Harper into the frame.

Word on the street is that the Los Angeles Dodgers sent Magic Johnson, a minority owner of the franchise, to help recruit Harper to LA.

Regardless of who was there, Harper's pursuit is problematic for the Dodgers.

As best as anyone knows, the starting point for signing Harper is $300 million over 10 years - the length and value of the contract the Washington Nationals offered him near the end of the 2018 season, as he neared the cusp of free agency. And while we may have been told that the Phillies may be the favorites to land Harper, it's hard to ignore the allure of business mogul and brand icon Magic Johnson-who is now connected to LeBron James-and the Los Angeles Dodgers for baseball's biggest superstar.

New reports of the Dodgers trying to remain below the luxury tax threshold also means signing Harper may be hard regardless of who meets with him. But others think Boras and his team might be thinking differently - that they don't want to risk Machado setting the market lower than they want it.
