Philly Police, Fire Departments have fun with Harper, Machado rumors

Bryce Harper

The police and fire departments in Philadelphia had a little fun with the rumors that either Bryce Harper or Manny Machado could soon sign with the Philadelphia Phillies.

The police department got the ball rolling. It “confirmed” the rumor that Harper will soon be headed to Philadelphia, just in a different role than the one we’re all used to.

Not to be outdone, the fire department responded. In fact, Machado can make slightly more with them.

We’d have to see what Machado looks like as a paramedic. If Harper shaves his beard, though, this picture tells us that he’d be quite convincing as a cop.

We can never let it be said that the police and fire departments in the City of Brotherly Love don’t have good senses of humor. They’re also right up to date with MLB’s rumor mill, as least as it relates to Bryce Harper and Manny Machado.
