But that's not really what happened.  He declined the big offer, had a terrible walk year, and ended up with a 1 year contract from the Rangers.  There wasn't a big offer on the table when he actually got to FA.


I believe he said he declined the big offer from the Nats because of the Union. Didn't want to sell himself short after such good seasons.

As I remember it he didn't take the offer because he didn't want to affect other free agents by taking less money to stay in D.C. He wanted to stay and he wasn't thinking rationally. I'm sure he regrets turning down the offer big time.

he ended up making $78 million after he left the Nats. His last year with the Nats, he made $11 Milllioin.  I assume that would have been covered by his contract offered before that season, so that's $89 million vs. the offer which I think was $107 million.  Purely from a financial perspective, he hurt himself.

Adam Duvall out for the year with a torn tendon sheath in his wrist.

I've like him the past couple of off seasons as one of those minimal investment regulars we could have picked up to look like a professional baseball team.

He probably won't get it again, but he's making over 9 million this year.  That's more than 2 Cesar Hernandezes, which is I think the type of guy you had in mind.

he made $5 million last year and $9 million this year.  Even at $9 million, wouldn't have been a bad signing.  More to the point, you can fill about 4 positions with the Duvalls of the world and have a respectable team.

Yep, the old lingering injury rest period (Crosby comes to mind) just might be a thing

Good news.  DeGrom will debut against our very own Nats.

Neat how the timetable worked out to be just at the very beginning of August and opening against the cellar dweller.

Smart of the Mets to give him one more minor league rehab start

you beat me to it.  the advantage of a start vs the Nats is that it will be in a bigger ballpark with good lighting and there will be more mets fans there than at a minor league stadium.
