Bryce Harper has texted with Mike Trout, and when he mentioned the Angels star by name in an interview, talking about how great Philadelphia is and how great it would be for the South Jersey native to play for the Phillies it drew the ire of Rob Manfred and Tony LaRussa. LaRussa works for the Red Sox and when he gave his two cents he was potentially crossing a line you shouldn’t. Manfred quickly put a halt to this kind of talk. He doesn’t want his sport to turn into the NBA overnight.
