Eagles Social Media Pokes Fun at MLB Free Agency

Just how ridiculous is the Bryce Harper saga right now? Even the Eagles' social media team is getting in on poking fun at Twitter's most infamous source of MLB news.

Heyman, a well-respected member of the MLB media community, has earned such a dig by the Eagles from his nonstop posts about MLB free agency that don't seem to advance the story or provide new information.

In fact, each one of his tweets are now met with memes and replies poking fun at that very fact.

He is, however, still breaking news and has been on the forefront of the Manny Machado, Bryce Harper beat. However, the length of time both of these megastars have taken to make their decision is hurting Heyman's Twitter clout. Or, is Heyman hurting himself, posting so many updates that go nowhere?

Either way, the Eagles' social media team probably came up with this idea, asked someone if they thought it was funny and they said, "Sure, why not, let's post it."

This is another reminder of the level of lunacy this MLB offseason has reached. Fortunately, the Phillies will play a real baseball game on Friday and NBC Sports Philadelphia+ will have its first broadcast of the spring this Saturday.

As for now, we continue to wait.
