1.  It means that boras won't always go to fa.


Some how I think this is less boras's idea and more Stras telling him do it or he'll find another agent who will

Almost like the agent works for the player?  That's crazy talk.

Don't be ridiculous - this move helps convince Harper that management is serious about keeping a winning team

But we're not in New York and we don't have a Monument Park.

$385M tied up between two SPs. That's incredibly stupid.

But we have a parking garage just outside of left field.

It's a huge, huge injury risk, but on the other hand, these guys are elite talents. It's not like we spent $70M on Ian Kennedy or something.

I like the point that Werth's departure means room for Harper - although that will only cover half of Harper's contract. I expect Harper to pass $500M.

So 2017 will be Strasburg Scherzer Gio Gio Ross

Very happy with that top 5. Roark will be around, too.

Unless there's no cap, the city built you a ballpark that you get the lion's share of the revenue for, have $3 billion, and banking on the eventual TV rights payout, and want superstars to keep the turnstiles turning. In that case, it's worth a shot.

Stras/Gio/Scherzer/Gio/Ross next year.  Assuming Scherzer bounces back that is a heck of a rotation.

Possibly; it looks like a canny move by Boras who gets what he needed out of the Lerners while being able to wring more out of a thinned FA starting pitching market for other clients without Strasburg's numbers. Win-Win-Win.

I bet Scherzer bounces back before Memorial Day.

Wins for everyone all around - Nats get kind of a bargain, too. At $8.5M/WAR and a normal aging curve, assuming no crazy injuries, Strasburg is probably worth $180-200M over those seven years. (My guesstimate came up $191.) So there's a small hometown discount.

I'm so pleased. It was so hard to say goodbye to Jordan. Didn't want to do it again.
