Those two had original stock ligament, Strasburg has an after market model..

Ryan's original went in his final game. He continued to pitch with none.

Or Grienke, or Verlander, or Sabathia, or Scherzer, or Wainwright.

Great pitchers can still be effective at 35. Yeah it will probably be somewhat of a burden in year 6 or 7, but I think the Nats will be fine.

Especially when the MASN lawsuit is settled.

7 year deal for a 31 year old pitcher.  Bold move sirs.

May the price on Cole skyrocket now.

Same agent and the same deal that was rumored for Cole.  Coincidence.

I guess they ran out of the money they saved up when they were bad.

They spent as much in payroll in 2019 as they did in 2012-14 combined.

Philly spent most of their prospect capital on Reamulto.  I’d like to see how this works.

Looks like they are prepared to blow past the soft cap.

I figured it was close.

Even so, Forbes reports their 2018 revenue at $452 mm and operating profit at $87 mm.   So, it seems they can afford that payroll.

Many people are saying, with the new CBA certainly changing, if not eliminating the current salary max... It won't matter.

It certainly won’t be eliminated.     I’d say a significant increase could happen.    It’s already increasing year by year, but I could imagine a good bump in the next CBA, and possibly a floor, though not a dramatically high one.

Sure, every team can.

But that interferes with ownership profits.
