And you are done with his contract after 3.

If you can get Corbin or keuchel for only 3 years then ok. But that seems unlikely.
Corbin is 29. And Keuchel is 30. So if you give them five year contracts at the end they will still be younger or as young as Greinke is now. Also you don’t have to give up anyone.

Greinke is 35. He will hit the wall soon. Pass.

Depends on how many teams are willing to undercut the idea. But I doubt Arizona is thinking they will get top prospects while not eating any salary.

We seem willing to give someone 30 million this year. Let it be pitching.

:thumbs: But to get any top tier player it’s going to cost us Soto or Robles.

Giancarlo Stanton career K%: 28%
Bryce Harper: 21%

I'm looking at it like this.

With the roster as is, who helps us win games more... Harper or Greinke? And you can replace Greinke for others on the market, but I am choosing Zack because both Zack and Bryce will make 30+ next year.

Bryce is inconsistent compared to Zack. We may get .300 and 30+ with Bryce or .250 and 30 with Bryce. 2015 & 2017 Bryce was good. 2016 & 2018 Bryce not so much. Bryce defense isn't especially good. But ignore 2018 Bryce Defense... a CF he is not. I know Bryce plays with good passion. He is a hard worker.

I like our 4 outfielders we have on the roster right now. The team needs others not named Bryce Harper. And that's not gonna change in a year.

Greinke will win us more games next year than Harper. And quite frankly is a better "purchase" over the next 3 years. Better than Harper and the 2 big SP names on the market right now.

If I was Rizzo, I would be calling Arizona and telling them I will take all Zacks salary in exchange for a few prospects, just not my top prospects and see if I could land him. Because I can be done with Greinke contract after 3. I don't see getting the others on the market for just 3 years.

I like Harper, I want him to resign. But for 35 million I can do so much more. I didn't feel that way until the end of the season.

But Bryce accomplishments (MVP and Home Run Derby) didn't help us win crap.

If I can start Max, Stras, or Zack 3 of every 5... Im the prettiest nag at prom.

The Athletic is reporting that the Nats had a deal in place to trade Harper to Houston for three prospects, but that Nats ownership vetoed it.  The haul would have included starter J.B. Bukauskas (#76 rated prospect in baseball by BA), catcher Garrett Stubbs and one more prospect.

A solid prospect coming off a serious car crash and a couple throw ins?

Screw that. Harper was more valuable where we stood in July. There was still some hope they could catch fire.

There was not a major deal out there or the Nats would have made it.

Bryce strikes out too much to be the highest FA signing of all time

If they're going to bring back the Capitol logo why not the Senators name too? The city didn't want that branding because of the whole no representation thing but it's been 13-14 years, what are they going to do about it, take the ballpark back?

They don’t own the senators name
