We can’t say for sure, but after you read this, you’ll be able to put the pieces together on who will get impacted by the suspended season the most!

Many thought the Phillies would be competitive in 2019, but that wasn’t the case. They finished at exactly .500 (81-81), and GM Matt Klentak didn’t cease to stack the roster a year after giving Bryce Harper the richest deal in history at the time.

“If the season is canceled, that’s one very valuable year out of its window completely gone,” NBC Sports Bill Baer added. “That is, even more, the case upon realizing that catcher J.T. Realmuto, arguably the best player at his position in baseball right now, is a free agent going into 2021.”
