Scratch #3

In all honestly, I would be ecstatic if the Nationals, tomorrow, offered Robles the equivalent of the Longoria contract where we guarantee him $30 million or so guaranteed through his arb-years, in exchange for maybe a 3-year team option on the end.

Good thing Romero was just a curfew thing and not something worse. If he actually can be a 4.5-5 WAR pitcher, the Nats have another good arm (finally) on their hands.

That ceiling is incredible. I see why the Nats are willing to put up with him. The pitchers that had between 4 and 5 fWAR last year were Verlander, Nola, deGrom,Archer, Kershaw and Nelson. And only 7 pitchers in all of baseball created more than 5 wins.

I'd put up with a lot to get one of those guys...

Romero is on the list still.  I'm surprised to see Keiboom now at #2.  I wonder if he'll be ready to take over for Murphy at 2B next year.

Talked to a USC guy and he said Crowe could pitch in the majors right now. He's a guy I can easily see stepping into a role on the MLB rotation in 2019.
