Washington Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg is arguably the most coveted player in the free-agent market after winning the World Series MVP, so here are the landing spots for him.

Washington Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg is no doubt going to get paid. His agent is Scott Boras, who has a reputation of dragging out the offseason in terms of getting his clients the most money as possible and that will be no different for the 2019 Washington Nationals World Series Most Valuable Player.

The Washington Nationals recently extended him a qualifying offer, and he has ten days to decide whether or not he is going to accept it or not.

It is obvious he is going to reject it and become an unrestricted free agent, as he just opted out of his 4 years, $100 million contract with the reigning World Series champs.

Strasburg is one of the best pitchers in the game, and he showed in the postseason which only increased his value on the market this winter.

He was able to propel his club to a Game 7 of the Fall Classic with over 8 innings of dominant pitching, one that certainly cemented his case to be the World Series MVP.

I think there will be fewer suitors for Strasburg than there will be for Cole, particularly because he has his mindset on what teams he is interested in and I don’t think he is one of those players that can’t wait to hit free agency to earn the most money he can.

I believe he has his sights on these few teams, and I don’t think Boras will be able to change his mind.
