Pirates pitcher gets mistaken for Bryce Harper, tells waiter he's signing with Yankees

Pirates pitcher gets mistaken for Bryce Harper, tells waiter he's signing with Yankees Who is Bryce Harper and who is Trevor Williams? Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Trevor Williams had a tough decision to make Thursday night. After a waiter mistook Williams for Bryce Harper, Williams could either admit he was a different baseball player, or go along with the lie. Williams chose the latter. Because of that, there’s a waiter out there who thinks Bryce Harper is definitely signing with the New York Yankees. Our waiter tonight thought I was Bryce Harper so of course I played along and told him I was signing with the Yankees. He was very happy because he was from the Bronx. — Trevor Williams (@MeLlamoTrevor) December 28, 2018 Yikes.

Both superstar free agents are expected to command near record salaries.

Last month's Winter Meetings produced a few signing, including Patrick Corbin's six-year, $140 million deal with the Washington Nationals.

Report: Phillies to meet with Bryce Harper in Vegas The Philadelphia Phillies have been linked to free agent infielder Manny Machado more than former NL MVP Bryce Harper this winter. In fact they are said to be one of three named teams to be finalists for Machado’s services. That hasn’t stopped the Phillies from flirting with the idea of adding Harper from the division-rival Washington Nationals. According to this report from Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia, the Phillies are expected to meet with Harper in his hometown of Las Vegas here soon.
