Fangraphs still has the Nats with a 57% chance of making the playoffs.

Unless the Nats know something fangraphs doesn’t know - like maybe Strasburg is toast for the year - then it would make more sense to add and try to turn the thing around than to sell.

Dodgers rumored to have offered Puig for future Cub Bryce Harper.

Offer Jason Heyward (WAR 1.5) for Harper; Puig only has a 0.9 WAR this year. JHey still has a no trade clause through this year though ...

He's going to the Dodgers for a pile of trash, right?

Realistically the Nationals have to be hoping for someone to make an insane offer right?

Sounds crazy but I have this feeling that Harper will be on a new team this time tomorrow.

Ideally a 3 team trade where some combo of Happ, Almora and Monty and prospects go out and we end up with Bryce and a starter. But just for Bryce, Caritini is like the most I’m giving up off the MLB roster and I’m not trading Amaya for him

To make a deal for Harper, the Nationals would have to be overwhelmed and get everything they want -- a front-line starter and more -- a source told Kurkjian.


He's not going anywhere. The Nats are gonna hold out for too much. I think they're just doing this so they can tell fans "well we tried".

Is there really anything to gain from making a show of trying to trade away your franchise player?

I just feel like if they were really gonna trade him, they'd have started this last week or something...let some bidders really push the price higher. Putting him on the block this late, with a huge price tag...it just doesn't feel very serious.

I'll probably be proven wrong in a few hours....I'm terrible about trade predictions.

There isn't actually a block where you put up your items for auction at a certain time. We may have just heard about this in the media yesterday, but it has been mentioned for at least the past week.

If anybody had any interest in trading for Harper, they probably would have at least made inquiries in advance. Not to mention, Washington is only 5.5 out of a wild card spot and they know they had to wait for the last possible minute to actually pull the trigger, if they pull the trigger. They've lost 2 in a row and if they won those 2 maybe they don't even think about it.

Per FG, Brewers are projected for 88 wins, and the Diamondbacks are at 86 for the two wildcard spots. Nationals at 52-53 currently would have to go 34-23, or play at a .596 clip the rest of the year. And that's ignoring the Braves, Cardinals, Pirates, and Rockies. The FG projections still really like the Nationals, having them play out the year at a .579 pace, but it's an uphill climb.

If somehow we could convince Kershaw to opt out after this year and pay him 6 years/185-200 million, we might be better off than Harper at 10yrs./350 million. Kershaw certainly fills a bigger need than Harper, especially with the emergence of Bote possibly moving Bryant to the OF.

There's no way I'm paying for Kershaw's decline phase when we're already stuck with Lester's and Darvish's.

Give me Harper all the way.

Weird timing for this since Harper has been back to slaying fools for a month now.

Also weird to be pondering moves of this magnitude because of Bote.
