#Back2BackOneDay: What is Bryce Harper trying to say about his future, Kris Bryant and the Cubs?

#Back2BackOneDay: What is Bryce Harper trying to say about his future, Kris Bryant and the Cubs?

Bryce Harper someday joining the Cubs has been prime speculation fodder this summer.

But does Harper know something we don't?

The Washington Nationals superstar — who's slated to become a surely record-breaking free agent after the 2018 season — posted a picture of him and fellow Las Vegas native Kris Bryant on Instagram after Tuesday night's game between the Cubs and Nationals in the nation's capital.

A nice picture, sure. But the important part is the hashtags, one of which is #Back2BackOneDay.

Oh really, Bryce?

Is baseball's biggest star hinting at a potential future in a Cubs uniform, batting right behind Bryant, the Cubs' current All-Star third baseman and reigning National League MVP?

Let the speculation train continue to roll down the tracks. Harper's certainly providing enough energy.
