According to a post on MLBTR, the Nats are one of a handful of team that are competitive balance tax payers.  That means that if we sign a qualified FA, we must forfeit our 2nd and 5th highest picks in the 2018 draft, and have our international signing pool reduced by $1 million next year.

That likely means we aren't signing a QFA.

QFAs are: Jake Arrieta, Wade Davis, Lance Lynn, Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Lorenzo Cain, Alex Cobb, Greg Holland, and Carlos Santana

Hosmer is the only one I'd see giving up the picks for.
