Arrieta not on Nationals’ radar despite Boras’ push

Start with a big-name free agent. Make sure he’s represented by Scott Boras. Then connect them to the Nationals, specifically managing principal owner Ted Lerner.ObrazekCongratulations, you’ve just created the perfect Winter Meetings rumor.ObrazekIt’s happened before, it’ll happen again and it did happen today when ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick tweeted that Boras “is trying to engage the Nationals on Jake Arrieta.” Henrik Lundqvist Womens Jersey Crasnick went on to point out the obvious - the Nats already have committed $385 million to co-aces Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg - but mentioned “that hasn’t stopped Boras from making his pitch to Ted Lerner.”If you’ve followed closely over the years, this shouldn’t have come as a huge James Van Riemsdyk Jersey surprise. The only thing that changes is the name of the free agent. On a few occasions, most notably in the case of Scherzer, the rumor actually has come to fruition. In far more cases, nothing has ever come of it, with the Nats rebuffing Boras’ overtures and sticking with their originally intended plan.So which is it this time? Are the Nationals actually interested in Arrieta, or is Boras simply trying to make them interested in the right-hander?“The latter,” said a club source, not needing to go into any more detail than that.Look, there’s plenty of reason for Boras to push the idea. Arrieta is one of two top-tier starting pitchers on the open market right now, along with Yu Darvish. The 2015 National League Cy Michael Thomas Jersey Womens Young Award winner became a Jonathan Toews Authentic Jersey star in Chicago over the last four seasons, going 64-29 with a 2.67 ERA while averaging 30 starts and 188 innings.But Arrieta also is coming off a down season, by his recent standards, one in which his fastball velocity dropped 2 mph and the Cubs held him back to be their Game 4 starter in the National League Division Series against the Nationals. He’ll be 32 in March, and teams understandably are reluctant to give him the kind of mega-contract afforded Authentic Demarcus Lawrence Jersey to star pitchers like Scherzer (seven years, $210 million) and Strasburg (seven years, $175 million).
