The former Washington Nationals Rookie of the Year in 2012 and later National League MVP continued to plead for a spot on the Eagles' roster after more troubling developments (or non-developments) engulfed Major League Baseball at the beginning of the week. At the moment, there is a stunning gap in a return for baseball between the MLB and its owners and the MLBPA, the players' union.

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred made a fascinating statement today. He called into question the remote possibility of staging professional baseball in 2020 due to alleged far-reaching demands from the sport's players. Manfred's frank assessment of the state of America's pastime came less than a week after essentially guaranteeing the start of the 2020 MLB season.

The 2020 season never even started due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which cut short spring training in Florida and Arizona in March and has since erased what would have been the first third or so of the 182-game MLB schedule. That includes the Phillies' attempt to reach the postseason for the first time since their five-game divisional series loss to the St. Louis Cardinals in 2011.

After Harper signed a truly massive contract with Philadelphia in the 2019 offseason—inking a 13-year, $330 million deal in March of 2019—the star outfielder had hoped for more playing time. But a mixture of the coronavirus public-health crisis and an egregious standoff between stubborn owners and the players seeking full compensation has left Harper without a sport to play.
