Nats shortstop Ian Desmond is eligible for salary arbitration and is scheduled to hit free agency in two years. It is very important that the Nats sign him to a contract extension ASAP for two reasons: 1) He has hit .286 with an .812 on-base plus slugging percentage over the last two seasons and won two Silver Slugger awards; and 2) his brilliant Twitter jab at Nats Enemy No. 1 Friday afternoon.
