The Washington Nationals are officially out of the playoff race and will prematurely switch their thoughts to what the offseason has in store. There are a ton of big name free agents entering the offseason, and it will be interesting to see which ones the Nationals are going to show interest in.
The Nationals showed the cohesion in their team in the second half, but nonetheless, were not able to make the postseason. If the Nationals decide to make some moves, there are a few guys who will top the list.
The Nationals are no stranger to long term, high paying deals either, so everyone is in play. Jayson Werth was signed to a seven-year, $126 million deal and Ryan Zimmerman was given a six-year, $100 million deal. The Nats have also acquired big name's such as Alfonso Soriano and Adam Dunn in the past, so GM Mike Rizzo has no shame in going for the big signing.
