Bryce harper for the Philadelphia Phillies it is accelerating before the meeting of both sides this weekend in Las Vegas.
MLB The Show, which will feature Harper on its 2019 cover, has been hinting in the past few days that the two sides could sign an agreement. Bob Nightengale, who reported the famous "bench" of the Phillies to take Harper this offseason, even said on Thursday on the Sports Radio podcast 94 WIP High Hopes that Harper will join the club is "more likely than ever."
The idea of Harper wearing red-striped stripes is becoming a fantasy and a reality in the minds of Major League Baseball, even on the league's website.
Examining through MLB.com, I decided to "drill down" on the HTML on the specific player / biography page of Harper and search for all instances of "Phillies." Eight arose, with the first instance the following URL:

Interestingly, the Nationals and Phillies are presented together in the URL. "Philadelphia Phillies" and "Active Roster" also appear later in the link, which redirects you to a blank and dark page.
Testing Mike TroutOn the page to see if this was just a "coincidence", the instances of "Phillies" only revealed callbacks to MLB.com site menu headers for each specific team. Harper has that HTML also for each team, but Trout does not have the specific "Active List" / Phillies URL on his player page.
Like the Trout page, Machado's begins with the same generic "Phillies" instance that contains sources for the site header. Machado has been targeting the club for much longer than Harper, which dates back to the July deadline. The HTML on the Machado page does not contain a specific "Active List" / Phillies URL.

Now, Rhys Hoskins, which is currently a phillie. The HTML in his biography contains the same "Philadelphia% 20Phillies% 3A% 20Roster% 3A% 20Active% 20Roster" HTML line as Harper & # 39; s.
Could all this be a coincidence? Yes, but website operators usually like to prepare and build their website and URLs before important signatures, especially those that may arrive after hours during the weekend, this Saturday when Harper and the Phillies meet .
Harper seems more likely than ever to be a Phillie in 2019, and this clue left on the MLB.com HTML website is just the last indication of that.
