WASHINGTON, D.C. — Anthony Rendon best the appropriate year to morph into prime Frank Thomas or Miguel Cabrera at the plate. The -to-be chargeless abettor is a lock to accomplishment in the Top 3 of NL MVP voting and may alike win the accolade with Cody Bellinger’s late-season slump and Christian Yelich’s late-season injury.
Rendon has been the absolute baseball amateur in 2019. His batting boilerplate has been over .300 every day aback April 1. His OPS has been .996 or college every day aback April 1. He has not had a bad ages from an on-base or ability perspective.
He has played able aegis all season. He’s been both careful and auspiciously advancing with runners in scoring position. He has about addled out.
What’s not to love?
Nolan Arenado, 10 months adolescent than Rendon, active an eight-year, $260 actor addendum with the Rockies in February. That’s a arrangement for the Rendon megadeal because one could altercate Rendon is every bit as good. Maybe better. Rendon has, for the aftermost three seasons, equaled Arenado after arena bisected his amateur at Coors Field.
So … Phillies?
Rendon and Gerrit Cole will be the obsessions this offseason by admirers of every team. If affected to aces amid the two, how could you not go with the position amateur accustomed how ailing best nine-figure starting bullpen deals comedy out? Alike for deep-pocketed teams that accept a third baseman, Rendon is the blazon of aptitude account affective pieces about to add.
He is an ascendance player. He is bigger than Bryce Harper, bigger than Manny Machado, bigger than all but bristles or so position players in baseball. He will be accessible afore his 30th altogether for annihilation but (a boatload of) money.
The Phillies will do their due activity as they consistently do. The catechism is not will they accompany Rendon, it’s how aggressively?
In Alec Bohm, the Phils accept a third abject anticipation in waiting. But some central and alfresco the alignment catechism whether the 6-foot-5 Bohm can stick at third base. When a amateur has the bat to comedy every day but not the cuff to stick at third, the three after-effects are about a move to larboard field, a move to aboriginal abject or a trade.
The Phillies accept Rhys Hoskins at aboriginal base. Hoskins, however, showed this division that he apparently cannot be the second-best abhorrent allotment on a alienated team. Not unless he can fix his extreme-pull-happy means and/or do added with his RBI opportunities. Homers and walks are great. But Adam Dunn was never a contender’s second-best abhorrent allotment either.
Hoskins’ batting average, home run and RBI totals are about abiding to abatement abbreviate of his 2018 numbers, admitting added bowl appearances and abundant added calendar aegis about him. It’s a affair that his home run amount will abatement in the year of the bashed ball.
If the Phillies were to assurance Rendon, they would not accept allowance for all three of Rendon, Hoskins and Bohm unless they confused Bohm to larboard field, area Andrew McCutchen abstracts to comedy abutting division in his acknowledgment from a broken ACL.
An advantage would be signing Rendon, affective Bohm to aboriginal abject and trading Hoskins for a starting pitcher. But that array of plan sounds easier in approach than in practice. You’d be affairs low on Hoskins, who will be advancing off the affliction half-season of his abrupt MLB career.
A advanced appointment has to time those things perfectly. If you assurance Rendon afore trading Hoskins, you lose advantage because the blow of the alliance sees your coercion to move Hoskins. You apparently won’t get abounding value.
And you cannot barter Hoskins after a assured plan to alter him with a bigger abhorrent player. Abundant of the criticism of Hoskins ignores the actuality that he’s still authoritative beneath than $600,000. He’s not a $25 actor amateur who is disappointing. He’s an bargain amateur who will be beneath club ascendancy through the end of the 2023 season. There is amount to that, alike with Hoskins hitting a career-low .232 with an .840 OPS.
The Phillies accept money and will abide to accept money. Area do they absorb it? Is Rendon acceptable abundant to command a arrangement abutting $260 million? Is he the appropriate amateur for this aggregation to abundant with that abundant money?
The assessment actuality is yes, as continued as the arrangement doesn’t reach untenable levels. Beneath and beneath adolescent superstars are alike extensive chargeless agency. In 2019 alone, we’ve apparent Mike Trout, Arenado, Ronald Acuña Jr., Jacob deGrom, Alex Bregman, Xander Bogaerts, Aaron Nola, Luis Severino and Ozzie Albies assurance arrangement extensions. Beneath the accepted arrangement area players don’t acquire what they’re absolutely account in their aboriginal three-to-six seasons, teams are alms added up-front money to save some on the aback end. Players are accepting those deals to get paid quicker but additionally because they see how abundant chargeless bureau is stagnating.
Who is to say addition amateur as abundant as Rendon will alike be accessible to the Phillies in the abreast future? Mookie Betts ability be. Or the Red Sox ability let J.D. Martinez airing and accord Betts Harper money. It’s aloof adamantine to say.
If the Nationals lose Rendon to a aggregation alfresco the NL East, they will acutely be worse activity forward. The backbone of the Nationals’ calendar is their 3-4 aggregate of Rendon and Juan Soto. Is there a bigger brace of after hitters in any calendar in baseball? Maybe Freddie Freeman and Josh Donaldson. Maybe Alex Bregman and Yordan Alvarez. Rendon-Soto would still be the aces here.
If the Phillies can assurance Rendon, it could accurately be a six-to-eight-win beat amid the Phils and Nationals.
Extending J.T. Realmuto is a antecedence for the Phillies. So is abacus several impactful starting pitchers. So, too, should be abacus a bigger 1B to Harper’s 1A. You can’t decay the primes or best years of Harper, Realmuto or Nola. And while it’s accurate that signing addition massive arrangement would absolute the cardinal of times the Phillies can do it afresh during Harper’s 13-year deal, it’s additionally accurate that the aboriginal bisected of Harper’s accord abstracts to be his best productive, authoritative now the time to supplement the accepted core.
