What does that tell ya?    Personally, I don't think Harper is as critical to this franchise as Rendon, particularly since Soto is on the scene.



They may also be well aware that Rendon is willing to talk about an extension while Harper and his agent were never going to even consider talks.

I mean, if I'm him, I point to my WAR and ask where my 300 million dollar offer is
And if I'm a GM, I say it was 4 years ago.

Huh? Rendon has posted back to back 6 WAR seasons.

Since Rendon has been called up, he's accumulated 25.8 WAR according to Fangraphs. In that same time, Harper has accumulated 26.3.

He's also not as young as you probably need to be to get a contract long enough to get to 300 mil.

Quote
Rendon is in his fourth and final year of arbitration eligibility, and Friday is the deadline for teams to exchange salary figures with arbitration-eligible players. It is common for the Nationals to agree to a deal with players before the deadline and avoid arbitration hearings, which occur if a salary is not agreed upon heading into February. Teams can still negotiate a deal of any size once the deadline passes, but it is typical for players to settle on a number this week and not let talks run too close to a hearing.
...
If Rendon settles on a one-year deal this week, extension negotiations would likely spill into the season and, from there, he would get closer to becoming a free agent next winter. If he and the Nationals do not settle this week, there seems to be a better chance of an extension being agreed upon before the season begins.

While not settling on a salary figure between now and Friday could indicate a potential hearing, that is probably not the case with Rendon. Hearings are often contentious, as an arbiter decides between the two figures (with no other options) and teams have to talk poorly of their player to win. The last time the Nationals went to one was with reliever Jerry Blevins in 2015, and they wound up trading him before the season. That does not seem like a situation in which Rendon and the Nationals will find themselves. Waiting until after this week to strike a one-year deal, if that’s the short-term direction the two parties decide to go in, would feel like a chance to further discuss a possible extension.

If Rendon will take $23 per year for seven years l say sign him before he sobers up.

Per @Ken_Rosenthal: "Rendon, who turns 29 on June 6, is seeking a deal comparable to the seven-year, $163.5 million contract the Astros awarded second baseman José Altuve before the 2018 season, sources say."

That's a lot. I love Rendon but he's no Altuve.

He’s probably going to make about $18/19 million in his last year of arbitration.
