So, anything interesting happen while I was on vacation the last 10 days? The third week of January usually is pretty quiet, so I can't imagine the Nationals made any real significant news.
With Max Scherzer now on board in Washington, all of Major League Baseball sees that the Nationals have six starting pitchers for five spots.
Max Scherzer spent five years with the Detroit Tigers before he signed with Washington, and along the way won a Cy Young award, made two All-Star appearances and pitched in a World Series.
Max Scherzer will be paid handsomely to join a team that was already one of the best in baseball, having led the National League in wins in two of the last three seasons.
After signing Max Scherzer, the Nationals have some big decisions to make over the next four weeks in regards to their rotation.
