Who knows what happened -- did the Nats decide on the break, or Long -- we'll probably never know about the Insider discussions. At this point, it probably doesnt matter. Braves have been destroyed by injuries the past 2 seasons and they've still handily won the NLE 3x in a row. Nats need to figure things out.


Long is coming back for 2021, a somewhat surprising reversal. I guess he looked around the league and didn't get a better offer. Reports are that he was popular with Soto and other players so hopefully whatever issues led him to look elsewhere have been resolved.

Curtis Granderson, Daniel Murphy, Zimm & Soto sing his praises, among many others. That's a helluva list of references. Glad (and relieved) that he's back.

And I suspected that it was not a case of The Nats just kicking him to the curb a few weeks ago. Sounds like he used his relationship with Soto to get the best deal possible out of the Nats. He didnt get what he wanted, so he looked for other suitors. If so, no problem with that.

I wonder if Jake Lamb would be worth signing. Lefty -hitting corner IF. Plays 3B and 1B. Not a bad hitter. Could add depth.

A few teams have considered Long or manager. He was told that he could look for better opportunities, which I would assume include managing jobs, perhaps bench coach. Nothing materialized, and he was always welcome back.

Big news, three pieces of the World Series team have been cut loose.

Quote
JUST IN: The Nats have declined Adam Eaton and Aníbal Sánchez's 2021 club options. They have also declined their portions of Howie Kendrick and Eric Thames' mutual options.

Surprised about Kendrick. If he doesnt retire he'll be a helluva DH somewhere. Hopefully this is a move to be aggressive in FA. And not done solely to adjust for the pandemic.

Wonder if Rizzo is interested in bringing any of those guys back on a lesser deal.

Lots of speculation on that question. I won't complain if Kendrick or the other guys get signed for lower contracts but I'm also ready for the team to get younger. Should be a very long slow winter for free agent signings. Teams are going to be bargain hunting so they'll wait until February or even March before signing guys to short term deals. Can't wait to hear Boras crying at the winter meetings.

In 2019, the Nationals were the oldest team.

Anthony Rizzo's off the market, Cubs pick up his option. And Nick Castellanos, who was speculated to be a Nats' "Plan B" target, did not exercise his option with Cincy, so he's off the market too.

Brad Hand cut loose by the Indians. He could help us in '21.

Realmuto and Springer are given Qualifying Offers -- IIRC they have 10 days to accept or decline a QO. Wonder if those guys will accept them in lieu of the market, and just wait for FA again next year. Meanwhile, Ozuna and Brantley were not given QO's.
