Does anyone “build a team” around any one player. This isn’t basketball. Exhibit A is the Angels.

He will get re-signed.  Arenado's deal is in place.  Bregman's deal is in place.  There is absolutely no reason this should not get done unless he just wants to go to true FA at the end of the year.
So if they are lowballing him/offering deferred money, he should sign anyway? Why is it always the player's fault if they don't want to sign?

Issue is they still have the window open the next few years and especially if Robles is good, so why not sign Rendon? If they were in a rebuild would make sense to not sign him and trade him now or at the deadline.

It's a negotiation.  Just because he turned down this offer doesn't mean the talks are over.   The team has to meet the market.   I think we will.  I'm not suggesting Rendon should accept a bad deal.

We have gotten to the point that we are arguing Mike Schmidt wasn’t that great.

Okay, problem solved, move Rendon to RF

Yes, I can see it, the Astros won in 2017 because they built around Reddick.

Cubs beat 100 years of history after Theo built a WS champion around Jason Heyward.

Someone call the Angels. All they gotta do is move Pujols to RF and they are WS champs

Very good but Rendon can’t carry any of their jock straps.

I hope they come to terms with Rendon because he is an excellent player. The idea that one person makes or breaks a team will be tested this year sans Harper. They treated him as the Anointed One and got four playoff berths and four first round exits. Let’s see what they do this year without a giant ego getting stroked.

End of the day only results matter. We didn’t have it in the postseason with Harper. I am ready to find out what happens without. If we get past the first round this year, give Rendon the check he deserves.

If it goes that far he will be a free agent and you have to outbid other teams.

Comparing Rendon to those HoF’rs is ludicrous. Two bags can’t even make an all star team. (And don’t bother with a-rod’s status).

If Rendon decides to wait until he's a FA, that implies he wants to maximize compensation, and we may have to reluctantly say goodbye.

He's staying at 3B for the foreseeable future.  Not sure why anyone would think otherwise.  Admittedly I haven't analyzed the potential market for a permanent, expensive third baseman in 2020.  I have a feeling some of you have done that homework.  That's really where the conversation should begin.  Unlike Harper, Rendon fits here like a glove in terms of need -- pun intended.

You're right.

Rendon is better than them at the same points in their careers.

So are you with your dumb "But what have we won with him"

Guess Boggs is crap because he had to go to a loaded Yankees team to "win something"

Meanwhile, you cant answer what position you're supposed to build around
