...which makes as much sense as anything else we've read on Prince and the Nats over the last few weeks. Oh, here's the latest from the mouth of Mike Rizzo, via Amanda Comak of the Washington Times on Thursday:
"We feel that we’re settled at that position. But when I get asked the question: Does Prince Fielder help the club? Of course he helps the club. He’ll help any other club he’s with also. Nothing has changed since we discussed this stuff in the winter meetings. There are a lot of comments that we’re the frontrunners, and I don’t know where that comes from because we haven’t gone beyond where we were at since the winter meetings." (Mike Rizzo, via Washington Times, 1/5/2011)
Let's say, hypothetically speaking, that the Nats made it clear to Boras that they wanted an answer by this afternoon, and Ted Lerner has put his best-and-final offer on the table. Let's say Boras doesn't get back to the Nats today, decides to wait out the Rangers and Darvish. Does Ted Lerner pull his offer off the table?
The good news is, there's only ~45 days until pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training. But who's on first?
