This is absurd. There is no way that you replace Harper’s production and there is no scenario in which trading him improves the team. None. No team is going to send back anything that approximates his value, because they will want to win this season.

The Nats were not a good team without Harper, Offesnive production took a major hit while he was out and he likely wasn’t up to full speed in the playoffs. And if you want to trade Harper because the Nats haven’t advanced in the playoffs, then you may as well trade everyone.

I basicallly love how everyone wants the Nats to behave as if they are in rebuild because they’re feelings are hurt that Bryce might reject them.

The last time I checked baseball isn't just played in 2018.

Harper is going to test the market and the Lerners aren't going to get in a bidding war.

We can trade him for some real nice prospects AND sign JD and not lose alot of production IMO.
