World Series MVP Strasburg opts out of deal

Former Washington star Bryce Harper left town to sign a lucrative 13-year, $330 million deal with the Phillies last season, and Strasburg could have his own major payday around the corner as well.

Strasburg becomes the second member of the world champs to seek free agency: On Thursday, third baseman Anthony Rendon became a free agent, according to the Associated Press.

The belief among many around baseball is that Strasburg will remain with the Nationals for the foreseeable future.

Both hurlers excelled on the world's biggest stage increasing their net worth at the flawless time for a team to drastically overpay on the open market.

Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg went 5-0 during the MLB Postseason and earned the World Series MVP award.

The likelihood of Stephen Strasburg inking with the Toronto Blue Jays is slim to none but it is the offseason and all we have is our dreams and unrealistic expectations of the front office. The three-time All-Star was 18-6 with a 3.32 ERA in 209 innings this season. Always an excellent pitcher when healthy, the 31-year-old truly put it all together in 2019, leading his league in both innings pitched and wins, while maintaining typically pristine ERA (3.32) and strikeout (10.81 K/9) marks across 33 starts.

Basically, with Strasburg you have a bona fide ace with nasty stuff and a proven postseason track record. Even with some past injury issues (you may have heard about his Tommy John surgery recovery), that's still the kind of player worth easily more than the $100 million he already had guaranteed from the Nats. It's not insignificant that Strasburg grew up in San Diego and could favor Southern California, but we'll see who ends up making the biggest bid.
