Bryce Harper was drafted by the Washington Nationals and spent the first 6 seasons of his career in Washington. He won an MVP and established himself as a star with the ball club. After hitting free agency prior to 2019, Harper signed in Philadelphia with the Phillies. Meanwhile, Washington had another emerging star in their midst… Juan Soto. Fast-forward to 2022 and Soto and Harper are two of MLB’s best players. However, Harper is comfortable in Philadelphia while Soto is on the trade block.

And talk show host Joe Giglio believes the Phillies should trade Bryce Harper for Juan Soto, per Audacy.

“They should offer Bryce Harper for Juan Soto. I would do it in a heartbeat, and I am one of the biggest Bryce Harper fans you’ll talk to,” Giglio said. “Juan Soto is better than Bryce Harper, now. Juan Soto over the next 10 years will be better than Bryce Harper over his next 10 years. There’s not a question in my mind, he is a better player.”

Giglio’s reasoning was that the Nationals wouldn’t be offered a “current great player” by any other team. Instead, Washington would only be offered prospects.

It’s clear this talk show host doesn’t understand the concept of rebuilding in sports. The Nationals want to trade Juan Soto in an effort to rebuild the team. They want prospects who can help them be good in the future.
