Should Mike Trout join Bryce Harper in Philadelphia?
Every NBA team is doing it, why not the Phillies?
Mike Trout has been languishing on an Angels team that is going nowhere. Joining Bryce Harper, to a city closer to his family and home to the beloved Eagles is a no-brainer. Imagine seeing two of the best players in the game teaming up, flying around the field and hitting homer after homer. The league would be better seeing what these two can do together.
Who cares if it's tampering? They should be on the same team!
When Kevin Durant joined the Golden State Warriors, people killed him for destroying the competitive balance and running away from a challenge. If Trout loves baseball as much as he says he does, he won't form a super-team with Harper.
Baseball needs rivalries like this. There is only so much Chicago-St. Louis, New York-Boston and Los Angeles-San Francisco people can take. Trout and Harper clashing on opposite sides of the field trying to one-up each other is what MLB needs to happen.
A squad with Trout and Harper would be horrible for the league.
