    The Cardinals have Nolan Arenado at 3rd base, so, Gorman is more expendable. If the Nationals pay some Max’s salary, this trade could be a possibility. The Nats don’t really have a future catcher, and this trade would allow them to add depth to their horrible minor league farm system. Gorman could slide into third base as soon as this summer, but would most likely be used as a building block for a future team alongside Carter Kieboom and Luis Garcia in the infield. Tyler O’Neil could be an interesting part of the Nationals lineup, hitting behind Soto and Bell in the future. This trade is just theoretical, and I am not saying that the Nationals should trade Scherzer, just what if they did.

      It would be unusual for a team to pay more than the actual salary. Granted, it’s complicated in this case as a lot of Scherzer’s money is deferred. What we’re showing here is the net present value of the remainder of the money he’s owed for this year, which we’re assuming is the max (pun) anyone would kick in.
