Just like everyone else who actually like baseball (i.e. not the owners or MLB commissioner Rob Manfred), Philadelphia Phillies star outfielder Bryce Harper is getting very irritated by the fact that he and others like him haven’t played in any games yet this year.

Last week, Harper shared a photo of himself wearing a Yomiuri Giants uniform, asking the Japanese baseball team to contact his agent Scott Boras.

The Giants, sensing a golden opportunity, responded to Harper’s post.

This week, with very little movement in the negotiations to end the Major League Baseball lockout, Bryce Harper was back at it again.

Only this time, Harper shared a photo of himself rocking a CTBC Brothers uniform of the Nippon League in Taiwan.

Harper also added a message to former Major League Baseball pitcher Chien-Ming Wang, the current pitching coach for the Brothers.

Bryce Harper isn’t the only MLB star to have contact with foreign baseball teams

Harper, the 2021 National League MVP, isn’t the only big Major League Baseball star to flirt with teams outside the United States, looking for a place to play. Fernando Tatis Jr. was contacted by a team in the Mexican League, Toros De Tijuana.

Toros De Tijuana and other Mexican League teams have been going hard trying to lure MLB stars south of the border to actually play in some games this spring.

One can certainly dream.

Baseball fans, looking for a little ray of sunshine, have been having a lot of fun with these possible scenarios. (And they are possible, just very, very unlikely to happen.)
