Like Gerrit Cole earlier in this article, Anthony Rendon is probably a distant dream for this ownership group, yet the possibility shouldn’t be ignored. At just 29-years of age, Rendon is coming off his best career season of an already solid career, with a career-high 34 homers and 126 RBI.
Rendon has a career slashline of .290/.369/.490, with 136 round-trippers and 546 RBI over his first seven full major league seasons. He pulled down $18.8 million in 2019 for the Nats, so he wouldn’t come cheap.
Although Rendon has only made the all-star team once, he owns a 27.3 WAR over his time with the Nationals. He’s received MVP votes in three seasons, and was the 2014 National League Silver Slugger Award winner at third base. And although Rendon has yet to earn a Gold Glove, his combination of flash, substance, and reliability at the hot corner cannot be ignored.
