No lede, just a GIF!
MLB scribe Jon (Paul) Morosi was on MLB Network and dropped this nugget on free agent shortstop Trea Turner.
Turner would like to get PAID and would like to head back to the Grapefruit League for Spring Training. Good news, the Phillies fit the bill! The Fightin’s have a ton of cigar money to spend and they train in BEAUTIFUL Clearwooder. Hell, they even bought more Florida land just for Turner (probably).
It’s also worth noting that teams would like the big name free agents to “shit or get off the pot” and get the market moving. The MLB Winter Meetings are set for San Diego from Sunday through next Wednesday. Imagine a Sunday where the Eagles potentially clinch a playoff spot only to be outdone by the Phillies inking Turner!
While the expectation is Turner to Philadelphia, what happens if he signs elsewhere? Do we riot? Nope, the Phillies will reportedly still get an elite player.
