The Clubhouse / Anyone looking to partner up for a half-season plan?
« Last post by CowherPower on Yesterday at 10:49:52 PM »
Sadly, after 18 years with a full-season plan, the Nats have finally driven away most of the members of my group.  The evil trifecta of poor team performance, rising ticket prices, and diminished perks for plan holders was too much for most of them (and I don't blame them one bit).

But I'm a glutton for punishment, and I just can't quit the team.  Between me and my remaining partner, we'd be willing to buy a quarter season.  So, we just need to find another partner (or two) who would be in for the remaining 20(ish) games to get us up to a half-season plan.

Last year we were in Section 211 and we're hoping to stay in that general area this year.  I believe the price for those seats in a half-season plan is $90.  I haven't checked with my agent yet to see what's available (but I'm assuming they have a LOT of availability).

Please feel free to PM me (or just respond here) if you have questions.  When it comes time to draft games, I would do that online via Zoom, so there would be no need to meet in person for that.

Second round picks are worthless. Late first rounder have trouble making teams, second rounders may as well be UFAs

No.  Nikola Jokic, Jalen Brunson, Draymond Green, Goran Dragic, Khris Middleton just off the top of my head

Apparently, there's no buyout for next year's option.  Basically, the Nats can get him for $3.3 million if he's worth it, go to arb if they think the award will be less, or just cut him if Hassell has won the job.  In effect, it is a cap on his  2024 earnings.

It guarantees all of his 2023 money.

Yes. $2.3 million this year and club option of $3.3 million next year.

Let the weeping and gnashing of the teeth begin. Need a Victor bingo card.

Throw to the wrong base.
Baserunning mistake.
Bunt with 2 strikes.
Etc.

In some pre-spring-training bookkeeping, the Washington Nationals and Victor Robles have settled on a $2.325 million salary for 2023, meaning the team and center fielder will not go to an arbitration hearing. While announcing this Monday afternoon, the Nationals also noted that Robles and the team have agreed on a club option for 2024, which would pay him $3.3 million if exercised, according to a person familiar with the terms.

Baseball Bill's brother is John F. Holdforth...couldn't remember his name.

With the deal avoiding arbitration today plus the option for next year, for a fairly modest contract, I think its safe to say that Nats leadership views Robles as a caretaker in center until someone comes along to take his spot.  That's how I view him at this point too.

You didn't have to shell out a hundred bucks or so a head for a ticket, a couple of drinks and a hot dog or two to go see Koufax pitch.  A lot of people miss that point.  Going to see pro sports is extremely expensive today, and getting more so every year.

The Clubhouse / Re: WP: Nats MASN deal renegotations will have a huge impact
« Last post by UMDNats on Yesterday at 05:27:12 PM »
gotta think that Nashville would be worth more than the Os, and that Angelos might want to take some money out of the eventual Os sale.  If that's true, then he could be a minority owner in the Nashville franchise, perhaps in exchange for his majority stake in the Os plus absolution for some or all of the money owed in the MASN reset.

You're thinking about this logically and as a lawyer. Remember: for years Angelos and the Orioles organization has acted in bad faith in this legal dispute, so why would that change now?
