The Clubhouse / Re: The Nats are...For Sale?!?
« Last post by JCA-CrystalCity on Yesterday at 12:03:14 PM »
I guess we can hope the Lerners decided not to spend this year on the idea that they would be ready to spend next year after presumably House, Cavalli, and Crews all arrive.

But i'm not optimistic.
It's also convenient that Corbin's contract rolls off after this year. That's about $15 million less in payroll even after the $10 million to be paid next year (his final $35 million is spread $25 million this year and $10 million next). They could spend that $15 million plus the Gallo / Floro / Senzel money (another $10 million) and not even increase the budget for FAs. Some of that will be eaten by arbitration, I suppose, but that may get offset with more deadline deals.

The Clubhouse / Re: Stephen Strasburg Retires

I wonder if part of this is wanting his salary on the books. If they have to pay it regardless, might as well use it to pretend payroll is respectable .

My guess is they're going for a long shot attempt at saying he's retired, not injured, due to not showing up.  Either way, it's getting painful to watch this unfold.  You don't see the Angels going after Rendon who's the same burden to them and openly not giving his best.

I really dislike Ambrose.
Why? I've enjoyed his books and the museum he started in New Orleans is incredible IMHO.

Bowser can't offer the practice facility that Ted wants unless she can find another parcel of land nearby.

If could stick a practice facility on top of a declining mall in Ballston, I’m very confident that they could manage something similar in a city where the mayor has been lamenting the lack of activity during the shutdown, which figures to be reflected in the surrounding buildings

A recent lengthy Post article appeared to indicate that Bowser has been ready to offer a pot of gold that may not require all these hoops. Why not tell the governor hey we tried, see you at the fights, and tell Bowser if they get the police presence to pre-shut down levels, it’s a go?

And if Leonsis doesn’t, maybe Youngkin can let his business pal down easy, and let DC pour in the dough? Any additional time for people to look at the numbers doesn’t figure to auger well for this, let alone a year from now.

The Clubhouse / Re: Nats lock up Ruiz

Mets are locking up Fracisco Alvarez. Threw out 13% of base stealers last season but ranked 4th in defensive runs saved among catchers.

Yes money for sure. They are concerned about the real estate for financial reasons.  I’m any event they said they were going to keep Capital One even with the new arena. So they would still be spread out.  Double talk. 

Wait, not having their estimated 685 employees right next to the arena might not make a difference except on the real estate portfolio ledger?
