Why did Corbin who plays every fifth day get everything he wanted but not Rendon who plays every day? Team is middle of the road in offense now. Watch how they drop more next year.
Corbin is grinding out/facing 30 MLB hitters to get to the 7th inning every 5th day while Rendon only has to grind out 20 AB’s total every 5 days and field a few ground balls??? Corbin gives us more impact and bang for the buck over the long haul. 1 of 5 starters versus 1 of 8 position players.

Geesh, maybe I should reevaluate the contract JCA-CrystalCity and I just offered Rendon.  :shock:

Let’s go Naaaaaaaaats!

If he's facing 30 batters TO GET TO the 7th inning every 5th day he's absolutely getting clobbered and this....

I don’t think ANYONE “hates” Rendon. In fact, I really like Rendon just not for $250,000,000.00. I’d rather see Mike Rizzo and the Lerners stay the course by spending the big bucks on pitching and doing the best they can scoring runs with the young guys under control and aging fillers. I really like their formula.

So after repeatedly seeing great pitching dominate great hitters for YEARS you would rather have “one” third-baseman versus having a GREAT starter and a solid bullpen for the same cost????

Do you watch the games, or are you reading the backs of Bubblegum cards?

Ironic you say that the year following the AL mvp winning a ring, the NL mvp making the NLCS and neither cry young winner making the playoffs

Last three world series winners have been 1st, 1st, and 3rd in runs scored. Pretty sure you need offense

10 of the top 11 teams with the best team era had “90+” wins in 2018 and all of them were in the Playoffs.
On the other hand, our Nationals finished 8th in runs scored but couldn’t even get a sniff of the Playoffs. Pretty sure you need pitching.  :roll:

I honestly don't see how we score significant runs next year if Rendon walks. Rizzo is terrible at under-the-radar pickups, he's good at some  trades or big free agent signings. Allocating Rendon's money to stopgaps at 3B, 2B, 1B and the bullpen is a terrifying thought.

Without Rendon next year's roster has 1 player you can pencil in for an OPS over .800.

Donaldson is available as a FA next year.
