shockingly, Rendon and Strasburg declined their QOs.  Nats will get picks after Competitive Balance Round B for whoever we lose.

Ozuna and Bumgarner turned down their QOs too.

that's pretty much right on what FG predicted. 

Giants screwed up by not trading him.

What is it about those New England teams?

Might have been a joke, but I think New England (and New York) teams are more likely to cheat because of the spotlight/pressure to win.

They aren't though.   https://www.statista.com/statistics/236213/mean-salaray-of-players-in-majpr-league-baseball/

Local TV money is going to get hit hard by cord cutting in a couple years.   I don't think the owners/GMs plan on salaries continuing to rise anymore.

Everyone always thinks their favorite players are going to continue to hit well.  I bet everyone said the same thing about Pujols and Miguel Cabrera.   The long term deals are more than likely than not to hurt the team down the road if you look at without any bias.

No team WANTS to give those last few years on a deal, but you have to in order to keep/acquire top talent.  Pujols and Cabrera are totally different players/body types as lumbering 1B/DH types.  Rendon is only 29...those guys didn't decline in their early 30s...it was mid-30s.  If Rendon is a stud for 4 or 5 years then not great for the last couple...that's fine.

The salaries are ever increasing, so if Rendon and Stras decline the last few years of their deals...inflation of salaries will be so that players the level they may decline to now make the same.  Injuries are always a threat, especially with a pitcher, but Stras has the stuff and location/savy to be effective for many more years, ala Verlander.  He already has lost the high 90s heat he came into the league with.  He can be very good at 93-95 with his pitch mix and location. 

Rendon has a skillset at the plate that I also believe will age well into his mid-30s.  I don't worry about giving Rendon 7 years and Stras 6.
