Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred made earth-shattering comments Monday. Manfred told ESPN that he’s “not confident” there will be a 2020 baseball season and that “as long as there’s no dialogue” with the MLB Players Association, “that real risk is going to continue.”

It’s unknown how seriously this sentiment should be taken, simply because it was only last week that the commissioner stated he was 100% confident about the MLB season returning, plus his comments have already been challenged by some players. Whether or not Manfred maintains plausible deniability, this outcome of this season will certainly wage a heftier toll on some organizations, the Los Angeles Dodgers being one of them. Mookie Betts, who was traded to the Los Angeles dodgers during the offseason, is on the last year of his contract, which is set to expire in 2021. If the season doesn’t start, then this will mean that the former AL MVP will get to enter free agency without ever suiting up for the Dodgers franchise.

Betts, reportedly, really loves living in Los Angeles and the Dodgers are naturally a heavy favorite to resign the superstar. But this didn’t stop twitter users from running wild with rampant speculation and commentary.
