‪Feeling Brotherly Loved. #Phamily‬

You know who else is feeling the love? Bobby Abreu. Fans have flocked to social media to point out that the former Phillie is in the background of the photo next to Harper. In fact, so many fans were posting about it that Abreu's name was a trending topic on Twitter in Philadelphia.

The Phillies do a great job of welcoming back former players to spring training and Abreu's inclusion makes a lot of sense with Harper in town. Abreu has a career .303/.416/.513 slash line with the Phillies over nine seasons, which is pretty similar to the .279/.388/.512 line Harper has in his seven-year career with the Nationals.

Fans have also been excited to see Jimmy Rollins and Charlie Manuel in the dugout during the spring, too.

In addition to the warm and fuzzy post Harper made, he has also changed his Twitter profile image from the old one he had of him in a Nationals jersey and his info to "Philly Loaded."
