I was sad to see Rendon go, and it leaves the Nationals with a hole at 3B.

Carter Kieboom is probably very close to ready, so he can man 2B or 3B

I'm reading that the Nationals are the frontrunners for Donaldson. Right now, the issue is the fourth year. (Give him the years, train minor-league IF Luis Garcia as a 3B, move Donaldson to 1B when Zim finally retires in a couple of years.) Atlanta is the main competition. Backup plans apparently include Maikel Franco and Kyle Seager. It looks like they're fading on Bryant. (Most of this is from Jon Heyman.)

They've also been in talks with 2B Starlin Castro. I don't know how serious, but that points to an alternative way of solving the problem: sign a 2B and use Kieboom at 3B. In the meantime, they should re-sign Cabrera.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

I'm a big fan of third base, undoubtedly the best of the bases.

Consensus is anyplace without Martin trumps Martin, even with an ignore button.

An excerpt from NBC Sports Washington about Donaldson chatting with Doolittle:

They played together for three years after starting in Oakland’s system in 2008. So, when Donaldson reached out in November, Doolittle had two things on his mind.

“I said, hey, I hope you get taken care of with your contract and everything, and I really hope we can work something out and you end up wearing the Curly W because I think I would love to share a clubhouse with him again,” Doolittle told NBC Sports Washington. “I would love nothing more than to watch him do his thing from the same dugout.”

If Doolittle made those comments to Donaldson as far back as November, right after they won the WS, it suggests it was commonly known that Rendon was out the door to another team. And not interested in returning.

If The Nats don't sign Donaldson, there will be the inevitable complaining by fans that Rizzo should have prioritized signing Rendon over Strasburg. But Rendon apparently wasn't coming back.

Donaldson is crossing his arms and holding firm despite getting offers in the "$100m range". But will sign first 4 yr offer for $110 million.

Oh until he signs one for 4 yrs for $92 million for the only club left interested in the guy.

Wow. So you didn't pee in your pants and throw a tantrum like last year when Bryce left? Gee, guess our little baby is growing up.

No, apparently, you're not.
