Did Matt Patricia like him?  The Pats need a QB, so I could see him entering the mix.  Jacoby Brissett is also a likely option, or even Jimmy G.
I could go for Stafford as long as he comes fairly cheap. Pass on the other two.

Idk, it just doesn’t seem like a Nats move to sign Hand. At this point I’d be more surprised if they signed Hand compared to Bauer.
Agreed. It's the kind of move where they are a "mystery team"

I can't believe they'd cut Thorne. Dude is a legend.

According to Heyman, Nats are a player for Hand now. The question is money (obviously).

I really don't see how they can make this move, regardless of how good of a fit he is. 
The Nats still are almost $27MM below the luxury tax threshold.  They can afford to give him 3 years, $30MM, which is the high side of estimates, if they think he's worth it.  They'd still be able to sign an Alex Avila or Tyler Flowers for $4MM if they wanted and have a lot of room for mid-season additions if they needed it.

I could see them giving Kieboom another shot and more or less leaving the lineup as is now.  Best case scenario is that it clicks for him.  I expect the Bell/ Zimmerman combo at first to be productive offensively, so I think that is your Soto protection.  NL East, other than ATL (Fried and Smyly), is pretty heavy on righty starters. Righty starters killed the Nats last year with Thames just not ever playing well and nothing to fear from Garcia.  Having Schwarber and Bell with Soto helps, and Castro hits righties pretty well, too, and Turner hits everybody.  I would like La Stella as one more position player for OBP, but I hope it isn't a fatal weakness.  Against lefty starters, Zimmerman plays and crushes, and, surprisingly, Gomes does very well.

Good to hear we are pursuing him. I am probably off the beaten path, but I prefer Colome. Either way, a closer to lead the pen is now our biggest glaring weakness, unless you are in the camp that Kieboom and or Garcia cannot fill third. I believe we are at 184 million, which has us about 26 million below the cap. I am hopeful we can get a closer and someone of the Lastrella/turner/wong or heck even Marwin Gonzales ilk. I know most everyone is happy with Fedde or Ross in that fifth position, but man 👨 would love one more arm for the rotation as well. Would I be satisfied if we just got a closer? Probably. As someone often mentions we can see if kieboom or Garcia performs or if our rotation has aged out and make decisions at the trade deadline.

26 mil should get us Hand at 10 mil a year, room to pay a catcher after a trade and a 3B like Marwin Gonzalez for 3 or 4 million.

They need a closer
Hand is the best closer available

It would be hysterical if MLB ended up owning the Oreos and had to be the ones to pay the Nats that $100MM...
Mitchell Rales or Bill Miller will buy the Orioles.
