Heís probably the kind of douche who will tell reporters not to ask him about it when Spring Training rolls around.
Yeah well he actually did wish all of his former teammates well and was happy for all of his friends over there. He didn't need to use Twitter. The words actually came out of his mouth in an interview here a few weeks ago so....

Re: Bryce Harper starting a new video game curse?

This is one of the more intriguing player team changes in sports, imo, with Harper going from the Nationals to the Phillies and how the two teams fared the first season after the change:

Phillies 2018 went 80-82 without Harper. In 2019 with Harper they improve to 81-81.

Nationals 2018 went 82-80 with Harper. In 2019 without Harper they go 93-69 and win the World Series.

I've been thinking about any other sport where one year removed from a marquee player switching teams that such a drastic difference in first year results post move.

I know there are many more factors involved than just Harper, but I personally find it very intriguing.

Not quite in the same year but this comes pretty close.
Wayne Gretzky traded to La from Edmonton just prior to 1988-89 season.
1989-90 season Edmonton win Stanley cup and on route thrash LA 4-0 in the 2nd round for good measure.
Wayne never wins another cup....

Dale Murphy left Atlanta for Philly in August of '90, the next year the Braves go from worst to World Series. of course, by 1990, Murph was just a shell of his former self.


not a drastic turnaround for Tennessee Volunteers from '97 to '98, but it did take Peyton Manning moving on for the Vols to win a natty (and to beat Florida and Darth Visor).
