Ramos, unless another shock extension occurs, will be a free agent after this season.

A full explanation of the Trea Turner question, and what Dusty Baker thinks
Obviously, the conversation would be different if the Nationals were not winning thus far. But for now, Trea Turner is in the minors, and nobody is sure when the right time is to bring him up.

Based on the amount of wins the Nationals have under Rizzo, and the spectacular teams he's put together, Thomas Boswell values the Nats GM at around $450 million, which is an irrefutable argument.

Why Mike Rizzo is definitely not worth $450 million
Mike Rizzo, good GM or not, is definitely not worth $450 million
