    i don’t like how everyone keeps saying that gerrit cole is better than stephen strausburg without batting an eye, one of them is the world series mvp and the other isn’t...... and not to mention even though you might not think so strausburg whole body of work is without a doubt better then gerrit cole not to mention strausburg is possibly the clutchest playoff pitcher in the mlb today

    Hey guys! As most of you know MLB is planning on shutting down some minor league teams and the Mets AA team is on the list. My friend started a petition and it has almost 2k signatures! Please help by signing and sharing the link! chng.it/8scXRbq5TZ The goal is to get enough people to sign to get Rob Manfred to reconsider. Please help spread this!

    Unfortanetly rendon wont be back. I feel bad that he didn’t get much recognition before because he’s always been so good. He always fell behind harper which is ironic because rendon was much better than harper this year.

    Love the take that for other NL East teams Stras is better than Rendon since we won't face him EVERY game. As a Braves fan with that take, I definitely love this move and letting Rendon *hopefully* leave the division lol

    I think If the Yankees thought they couldn’t sign Cole then they would not have let Strasburg get by. Either that or they are just pretending they want to sign one of them

    I can't help but be a _little_ disappointed in Strasburgh. Should've considered the Padres. No hometown pride. He'll probably pull a David Wells and join the team as he's on his way down. No. We won't get behind you.

    This sighning is just stupid. The nationals imo don’t improve that much with getting SS back but if they got Anthony back they improve huge time. I would of ignored SS and just went after Anthony now your asking Juan Soto to carry that offense and he is incredible but that’s a lot to ask of him. Awful move for Nationals. Anthony should of been sighed instead Nationals will regret this move.

    Did this idiot really just say Stephen Strasburg is going to go down as the best Washington National of all time? BTW you don't know how you feel about the contract? Let me break it down for you in layman's terms. In average annual value he gets paid 1.9 million less than Mike Trout per year. Should Stephen Strasburg be getting paid the same amount of money as Mike Trout? Obviously he shouldn't. This guy didn't even pitch the wild card game for Washington. Because Washington felt like they had a picture better than him named Max Scherzer

    I feel like Strasburg is too frail to to be pitching well into his late 30's. The back end of that contract is going to bite them. On another note, how high are these MLB contracts going to get? The bubble's got to burst at some point, because you can't afford to pay $20+ million to every good player on the roster.

  30. jerome williams

    jerome williamsMonth ago

    The bottom line is Stephen Strasburg should not be getting paid 2 million dollars less than Mike Trout per year. But somehow you actually have people like the moron who made this video who can't figure out if that's a good contract or not. BTW they're paying him until he's 38. Yeah that makes sense

  31. Past Analysis

    Past AnalysisMonth ago

    Honestly, I'm happier that we got Strasburg over Rendon. Do I want Rendon? 270 million percent yes I do, but starting pitchers like Strasburg will always be more valuable in my opinion. These types of pitchers have more of an effect on games compared to the Rendons and Trouts of this world. Not saying Rendon isn't worth the money, but he's only worth the money if you don't have a thousand other holes to fill. The Nats have their work cut out for them in terms of filling holes on the field and in the bullpen. Letting a greater starting pitcher walk when our bullpen is shakey is too risky.

    I think 7 years is a bit to long. Also when you keep in mind that 2019 was his first season since 2014 where he started more than 30 games.

  34. Colton Hand

    Colton HandMonth ago

    “They need a little more help offensively” but they won the World Series? I understand maybe the pitching staff is “better” but that’s because it is the best rotation in baseball. Also, he did not “carry the Nationals on his back as a pitching staff” he had a historic postseason but Scherzer Corbin and Anibal all played huge roles throughout the postseason. Definitely a Mets fan

    LMFAO Kershaw sucks. Explain to me again when Luis Severino has ever pitched good in the postseason? Yeah he does real good in the regular season when he's pitching against that minor league team called the Baltimore Orioles LOL

    Believe it or not, as a Yankees fan, i would rather have Strasburg. Dude is a gamer. He showed he can carry a team to a World Series, and he is used to pitching under the east coast spotlights. I just like his approach and think he would have been a perfect Yankee. I know Cole has the prettier stats but i dont know if he is cut out for New York. I could see him not liking it there and him not meshing with the Yankee culture. I could see him even taking a lot less money to go somewhere else......or worse....The Yankees offering him so much that, even though he doesnt want to play in New York, he cant turn down the money....which could lead to a disaster of a time for him in Yankee Stadium...IMHO. I know the Yankees will not be happy without a huge impact starter.....but forcing a square peg in a round hole is why the Yankees couldnt buy a ring in the 80's and early 90's. It took more than money.....and i think, unless Cole is 100% sure he wants to become a Yankee, they shouldnt force him to come to the team by making an unrefusable offer.

    You may have missed this since you went into the city (guessing you got an "official" job?), but $80 million of it will be deferred and Boras specifically said that he wanted to make sure enough money was still deferred to make them competitive in 2020. I don't see us getting Rendon, but Donaldson is a possibility.

    Stephen Strasburg didn’t really get overpaid he’s a great pitcher. For Gerrit. Ole on the other hand someone will just offer him more money and he will break Strasburg record. They have the same agent. So Cole will just get more money

    Lmfao you must not be that big of a Cubs fan. The owner of the Chicago Cubs has been speaking publicly about how the Cubs spent way more money than they were supposed to spend last year. They're about to trade Kris Bryant to the Atlanta Braves or the Philadelphia Phillies. As a means to lower their payroll. They are also attempting to sign Dallas keuchel for around 17 per year. But with all this information being made public you actually thought the Chicago Cubs were going to sign a starting pitcher for 30 million dollars per year. Cuz that actually makes sense to you. That's what the writing on the wall suggested would happen. BTW the Chicago Cubs rotation ERA last year was top three in the National League. Starting pitching is not even what the Cubs need. If you actually watched Cubs games in 2019 you would know that their offense was pathetic. Also their bullpen. But I'm sure Gerrit Cole or Stephen Strasburg would have hit a lot of home runs for the Chicago Cubs
