So basically he's going to be an Angel until his contract expires.

Exactly. In 2021, he will be a Yankee. I know Phillies fans like myself dream of him coming "home" (he essentially lived in a Jersey suburb of Philly) but it ain't happening. The Phillies will probably spend a ton of cash on Bryce Harper.

He's also only going to be 29 when he becomes a FA.

Phillies should go after Trout over Harper.  I think the fan base would embrace Trout fully, and not give him the "Philly Treatment".  Whereas Harper is a prick who played for somewhat of a rival...chance of that not ending so well.

Trout is also a season ticket holder for the Eagles and is BFF with Carson Wentz. I could see him becoming a Phillie.

Bryce is likely to go to the Yankees, as he grew up a fan.

Harper is on the market before Trout.  I think the Phillies ownership wants to win before 2022.   Harper definitely plays the heel role but the Phillies fans will love that if he is one of their own.   Both these guys concern me with injuries.  Trout is the better player IMO, I just don't see the Phils waiting that long to make a big splash.  Plus, there is some real heat between the Phillies and National's organizations.

As little as their payroll is, they could really sign both players.
