Matt Williams and what we don’t know

Their season ended Sunday, a week — if not a month — shorter than had been planned, and the Nationals jumped right into their off-season by firing reigning Manager of the Year Matt Williams.

Anthony Rendon: ‘I don’t watch baseball, it’s too long and boring’

We all know Robinson Cano is statistically the best second basemen in the MLB, what we do not know however, is whether or not he is going to be worth the large sum of cash he is going to be paid this offseason.
