The Cubs have long been thought of as a possible destination for Bryce Harper, given the franchise's storied history and his friendship with Kris Bryant.
And according to Morosi's sources, they want two.
"For years, the Phillies have looked upon this offseason as an opportunity to add a franchise hitter," Morosi writes. "In fact, they have the payroll capacity to add two, if the market breaks in their favor."
Philadelphia making such a huge upgrade to its lineup would have a major effect on the outlook for the NL East. The Phillies would immediately jump to the top in most people's minds, and after the Braves' surprise run to the division title last year, the Nats would most likely be seen as a sizeable underdog.
In fact, Morosi sees Atlanta as a "fallback option" for Harper, Machado or both.
As for the rest of the market for Harper, Morosi says the Dodgers, Giants, Rangers and Angels could try to lure the slugger out west.
