I've written before that Rendon reminds me of T. J. Oshie on the Caps.    He may not be the marquee guy but damn he's good.    He is a key part to the puzzle.

My only concern with Rendon is health.  He's had trouble staying healthy as a younger player.  How will he age?  I see a ton of parrallels to Zimmerman.  Can Rendon play 3B at an elite level and stay healthy for years and years to come?  If he's going to be often on the DL and eventually need to move off 3B to 1B later in his career, what's his value then?

Rendon's last 3 seasons -

156 GP
147 GP
136 GP

His first full season he played over 150 and he has had one year of more than 30 missed games.

He's averaged around 145 games a year for the last 3 years, and has only once missed signifiant time so I'm not too worried about his health.  How he ages is a fair question, but Zimm fell apart due to shoulder injuries.   We don't have anyone in the system coming along to replace Rendon, so I'd think a 5-6 year deal with a couple of mutual options would make sense if he'd take it.

weren't most of his injuries broken bones?  If those don't heal right, then there's a long term problem, but if they heal right, they are done.  Just don't tell Nick Johnson.

This guy is an elite ballplayer. I don’t need a silly all star game to validate that. The model of consistency.

.311 avg  .913 ops gold glove defense

He’s played his career in the shadows of more hyped players, but it’s time to make him a franchise player. Signing Rendon long term should be the #1 priority this winter.


This thread doesn't need to really need to go on past this point. Sums it up. Sign him.

The only funny thing about that post is where AZ talks about the silly ASG validation when he was so out of his mind clamoring about how Elijah Dukes was going to show everyone how awesome he was by being selected to the ASG and winning the HR derby at yankee stadium. :crackup:

Anthony Rendon on an extension: “I’m up for it.” Says they’ve been working on it for a year or so. Hopes they can come to terms

Man, if we can get him signed before the season that would be fantastic. No more of this contract BS like we had with Harper all season. Sign him and just play ball.

No real details but the Nats are attempting to work out an extension. Rendon is the guy they need to re-sign, much more so than Harper or Turner.

I mean, if I'm him, I point to my WAR and ask where my 300 million dollar offer is

Beatin' the drum but I see Rendon as I do Oshie.     Maybe not the top dog but I'll pay for the extras he brings.

interesting that we're publicly discussing trying to extend Rendon a year before his deal expires, but there was no hurry to try and extend Harper.

What does that tell ya?    Personally, I don't think Harper is as critical to this franchise as Rendon, particularly since Soto is on the scene.
