Damn I guess he knew what he was doing when he turned down all that money from the Tigers last year.

Nats staff was already very good. I think this money could have been spent elsewhere like on a bat.

Scherzer is a big loss, but $210 million for a guy who rarely goes longer than 6/7 innings?


I trust Dave Dombrowski knows what he's doing. Going to need Price to be Price, Verlander to return to form and get a fully healthy season from Anibal. Our rotation is still pretty good, but I wouldn't mind adding a James Shields to the fold to shore up the rotation.

Lebron is some place reading this story and telling his minions they need to kill whoever invented that salary cap shit.

Hate to break it to you, Verlander is done. A "return to form" or anything close to it is not happening.

Yeah, I wasn't banking on it, just more trying to understand Dombrowski's thought process. He fell off hard last year.
