Monday morning Nats Q&A

Well, it was an eventful week for the Nationals out in San Diego, where they were the center of attention at the Winter Meetings, with both positive and negative results. They re-signed Stephen Strasburg for seven years and $245 million. Then they watched Anthony Rendon leave for seven years and $245 million. Which leaves them in a bit of a predicament as they try to find some way to make up for his lost production, defense and overall presence. It won’t be easy.

There are still holes to fill at first base and second base (in addition to third base). There’s a bullpen that needs another proven arm (or, preferably, two). There was last week’s announcement of a coaching role shuffling. The offseason is now in full swing, with 2020 fast approaching and the 2019 World Series slowly fading away in the rear-view mirror.

So let’s take an opportunity this morning to answer your questions on all of this. Submit your comments below, then check back later this morning as I do my best to provide coherent answers ...
