Owner: Nationals Can't Afford Both Anthony Rendon, Stephen Strasburg

Washington Nationals teammates Anthony Rendon and Stephen Strasburg celebrate after winning the 2019 NLCS

The Washington Nationals are World Series champions, but figure to lose at least one of their superstars in free agency this winter.

Stephen Strasburg and Anthony Rendon are both expected to command more than $200 million on the free-agent market.

"We really can only afford to have one of those two guys", the owner said. Harper didn't sign with the Phillies until the third week of spring training. While normally you'd expect regression from a hitter of Kendrick's age putting up those kinds of numbers, batted-ball metrics indicate a high quality of contact from Kendrick last season and thus suggest his level of production (or something close to it) may be sustainable in the near term. Lerner told NBC Sports Washington that they may not be able to retain both.

David Graves, a spokesman for UPS, said the company appreciated law enforcement's service and would cooperate with the probe. A UPS driver and an innocent bystander were also fatally shot during the gun battle in Miramar, which was seen on local TV.

Postseason hero Howie Kendrick is heading back to Washington. "World Series momentum has blossomed, millions in DC". And in the World Series, it was Kendrick's remarkable Game 7, opposite-field shot off the foul pole that put the Nationals ahead by a 3-2 margin they'd never relinquish.

Kendrick hit a grand slam in the 10th inning of the deciding Game 5 of the National League Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers to advance the Nationals into the next round.

After making a tweak to his swing by boosting his launch angle and getting his hands a little lower before coming through the zone, Kendrick returned this year to hit.344 with 17 home runs and 62 RBIs in 121 games. On that front, it's worth noting that Kendrick over the last three seasons has an OPS+ of 127.
