Cubs News: Bryce Harper posts about playing with Kris Bryant

by - Senior Editor -

Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant and Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper grew up together in Las Vegas and are great friends that would love to reunite on the same team again.

However, both star players will probably demand in the ballpark of around 10+ years for around $350-400 million. Big market teams will be lining up to try to lock these two players in to be their face of their respective franchises.

Harper posted on Instagram on Tuesday night the following picture with the hashtag #Back2BackOneDay to suggest that the superstar duo could one day play together in the same batting lineup.

Major league baseball insider Peter Gammons was on Mully and Hanley on 670 The Score in early June and suggested this duo could be coming to the Cubs one day.

"I have people tell me that Bryce Harper, really, would prefer to play for the Cubs," Gammons said on the radio show.

Gammons went on to say that he is not sure that the Cubs can afford the superstar.

"Somehow, I don't think it will be affordable to have Bryce Harper and Kris Bryant on the same team. It's a great idea and I would like to see it because I respect them both so much personally and professionally."

In 2017, Harper is batting .316 with 18 homers, 56 RBI, and .419 on-base percentage. For his short impressive career, he is .282 hitter with 139 homers, 390 RBI, and .386 on-base percentage.

He was drafted in the first round (1st overall) in the 2010 MLB Draft.
