When it comes to the Phillies' off-season, there were a lot of questions about what would happen with Bryce Harper, Rhys Hoskins, and first base. MLB rules only allow one player to play first base at a time, so the team had to make a tough decision. Would it be Harper or Hoskins at first base? This week at the GM Meetings, we got our answer. It's going to be Harper.

While this is the right decision for the team, it means that Hoskins' career with the Phillies is likely over. This is not how anyone expected things to end. Hoskins was supposed to be part of a winning team, but a torn ACL in spring training changed everything. Despite this, Hoskins has had a great career with the Phillies. He's been a solid power hitter and has made important contributions to the team.

One of Hoskins' best moments was his slow trot around the bases after hitting a home run against the Mets in 2019. This moment is a perfect example of what Hoskins has meant to the Phillies and their fans. He and his wife have also been involved in the community and have made a positive impact on and off the field.

Unfortunately, the business of baseball means that Hoskins will likely sign with another team soon. For Phillies fans, this means saying goodbye to a favorite player and wishing him the best in the future. Hoskins has been an important part of the Phillies' recent success, and he will be missed.
