Dallas Keuchel could reportedly sign with Brewers, Phillies

Dallas Keuchel could reportedly sign with Brewers, Phillies Dallas Keuchel seems to be willing to take far less money now than he was seeking during the winter, and the left-hander could be inching closer to signing with a team. ESPN’s Buster Olney reported over the weekend that Keuchel is willing to sign a one-year deal, and Jon Heyman of Fancred has heard the same. Heyman lists the Brewers, Phillies, Padres and Astros among the teams to watch. Dallas Keuchel is believed open to the right 1-year deal, then resetting. One under the radar team: maybe Milwaukee, which has been linked to Kimbrel and has been willing to give up draft choice at times (ie Grandal, Lohse). Phillies, Padres, Astros are among other possibilities.

Tough crowd!

Bruce Willis threw the ceremonial first pitch in a Philadelphia Phillies jersey on Wednesday — to mixed results — before the team played against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Glass actor, 64, didn’t seem to mind when the baseball he threw to Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola bounced, even as the crowd booed.

A rep for the actor did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Before his big pitch, Willis took some time in batting practice against coach Dusty Wathan using a bat borrowed from Phillies outfielder Nick Williams, according to the Associated Press.

Harper agrees with Phillies fans booing him at home: 'I'd do the same thing'

Harper agrees with Phillies fans booing him at home: 'I'd do the same thing' Bryce Harper said he would boo himself too after the game he had Tuesday that finished in a 3-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers. The Philadelphia Phillies star slugger was lost in the batter's box, after going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in a night that also included an error on a fly ball. The notoriously critical fans in Philly let him have it, as Harper was booed during his lackluster performance. "I'd do the same thing," Harper said, according to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com. "It's not fun to lose, it's not fun to watch when you're playing that way. (I was) 0-for-4 with two punchies, I'm probably thinking the same thing walking back to the dugout.

Willis spent some time getting to know the players, including Rhys Hoskins and manager, Gabe Kapler, the AP reported. Hopping on the perennially hot topic of whether Die Hard, Willis’ classic 1988 film, is a Christmas movie or not, Kapler said, “I maintain, not a Christmas movie.”

“Aren’t most Christmas movies centered around the celebration of Christmas in some way or another?” he added.

However, Willis’ wife, Emma, later clarified that the fans weren’t booing the actor at all, but shouting his name. On Wednesday, she retweeted someone who said that fans in the stands were shouting “Bruuuuuce” instead of booing. “Happy someone cleared that up,” she said.

It wouldn’t be the first time Philadelphia fans have booed at just anyone — the city is famous for having some of the nation’s toughest fans.

In one such instance, a Santa Claus was booed at and pelted with snowballs at a Philadelphia Eagles vs. Minnesota Vikings game in 1968.
