When it comes down to it, the luxury tax shouldn’t be a dealbreaker — especially if it means keeping the star from going to a division rival like the Phillies.

Not since Alex Rodriguez has someone arrived to MLB free agency with the same combination of youth, talent and marketing potential as Harper.

  • Perspective

A busy Friday for the Nationals had them heralding one new arrival and possibly ushering out one of the faces of the franchise a few hours later as their principal owner spoke out.

The Nationals have already addressed most of their offseason needs heading into next week's winter meetings in Las Vegas, but the Bryce Harper situation hovers over everything.

The Nationals announced one of their biggest acquisitions in recent history when Patrick Corbin donned his jersey.

The Nationals' managing principal owner seemed resigned Friday to Harper leaving the team in free agency.

The first face of the franchise is entering the last guaranteed year of his contract.

Harper kept his promises and made Washington a contender. Oddly, the team may no longer need him.

  • Analysis

Washington now has three front-line starters at the top of its rotation. But there is still some work to do.

  • Perspective

Washington has addressed its greatest areas of need before the winter meetings even begin.

Washington wooed the biggest prize of the pitching market and checked off another box on its offseason checklist.

  • Analysis

LeBron James couldn’t resist the lure of L.A. It remains to be seen whether Harper can, or will.

The coaches have talked about changes in priorities, and they plan to implement them in spring training.

Rendon says he and the Nationals have been discussing a potential extension for "at least a year or so."

Washington's plans at the keystone largely will depend on Kendrick's health.

“Dude, what are you thinking? You just charged the mound in front of the president and the first lady!”

Washington has a welcomed problem entering the 2019 season: What to do with two good, offensive catchers?

No one with the team, including General Manager Mike Rizzo and Manager Dave Martinez, had any answers.

The trade gives the Nationals a catching tandem of Gomes and veteran Kurt Suzuki which should provide an uptick offensively.

The Nationals will exchange contract figures with all seven players, including left-hander Sammy Solis, who struggled mightily in 2018.
