Nationals - Signed Marquis
Washington Nationals - Signed P Jason Marquis to a 2-year, $15 million contract.
I’m pretty gobsmacked. If you told me a month ago, after Marquis won 16 games, was named an All-Star, and had numerous puff pieces about his legendary streak of playoff appearances, that Marquis would only sign for 2/15, I would have thought you were nuts. But that’s what happened.
Marquis is the best kind of the inning-eater species. With the exception of one season, Marquis is always pretty healthy and always a bit above-average and this is something the Nationals are desperate for. Suddenly, the 2010 rotation has one less gaping hole and assuming some luck with Strasburg and a successful recovery from Zimmermann, the Nats suddenly have a pretty decent 2011 rotation.
The Nats still have a lot of work to do, but they might stop being in contention for one of the top draft picks in the near future.
