Anthony Rendon Is Packing His Bags For Anaheim To The Tune Of 7 Years And $245 Million, No Money Deferred

Heavens to Betsy! That is a lotttt of dough. My goodness. 7 years, $35 million per, with none of it deferred. Rendon got straight up PAID. After the Nats paid Stras, it was looking very unlikely they would be able to keep Rendon as well. And now we know why. That’s just a massive contract. Obviously well-deserved for the MVP nominee and World Series champion, but boy, after losing Bryce to the mega-deal and then winning the World Series, the Nats probably felt a little more comfort in losing him. Not saying it’s fine and dandy to lose such a talent, but the Nats followed the blueprint of paying for starting pitching and it worked. Worked like a motherfucker. Plus top prospect Carter Kieboom appears ready to go, and Victor Robles will only be getting better, joining other youngsters like Soto and Trea, so it’s not like the Nats are exactly suffering in the lineup department.

But nonetheless, it sucks to see him go. It’s always sad, but at the same time, this guy worked his entire life to get this sort of money, he won the World Series in DC, and now he’s cashing in. That’s the dream man. So thank you and best of luck in LA.
