Passan: 10 Degrees on the Underachieving Nationals

#FireDeivi

“The clubhouse is a mess,” said one source, whose account was corroborated by three others who spoke to Yahoo Sports on the condition of anonymity out of fear the organization would punish them for speaking publicly. While the sources pinpointed a number of causes for the internal acrimony, they agreed that it was not purely a function of the Nationals’ underachievement but something that has festered throughout the season.

Some of the blame, they said, falls on first-year manager Dave Martinez, who replaced the popular Dusty Baker when Nationals ownership declined to renew his contract after back-to-back NL East championships. While Martinez has forged good relationships with a number of the Nationals’ stars, including Bryce Harper, a number of players feel marginalized, according to sources.

Should the Nationals consider trading Harper?

Washington has lost 21 of 31 since May 31, a .323 winning percentage that’s better than only the Mets, Orioles and Royals in that time span. Maybe a question that sounds objectively crazy on its face actually isn’t: Should the Nationals, in the face of a tremendously disappointing season, trade the man who was expected to headline one of the best free-agent classes of all time this offseason?

The answer is clearly, “Not yet, obviously,” and not just because the Nationals certainly aren’t going to do anything this wild before they host the baseball world at the All-Star Game later this month. This is not something that could or should happen soon. But what if that answer changes in the next few weeks? Let’s try to find out what would need to happen for the Nats to completely change the face of the non-waiver Trade Deadline.
