How Patrick Corbin’s Reported Contract With Nationals Impacts Red Sox

After two lackluster seasons in 2016 and 2017, Corbin finally rebounded this past season to go 11-7 with a 3.15 ERA for the Arizona Diamondbacks. It seems the deal Yu Darvish signed with the Cubs last winter served as something of a framework for Corbin's deal, with him getting a bump because he's two years younger and is coming off a better platform year.

With the Winter Meetings coming next week and numerous offseason milestones behind us, the free agent logjam was destined to break at any second, and perhaps it just has: Patrick Corbin is reportedly signing with the Washington Nationals.

Per MLB.com's Jamal Collier, Corbin's deal with worth six years and $140 million.

The Washington Nationals continue to make a statement of intent this offseason, as they added arguably the market's top starting pitcher, Patrick Corbin.

Heyman added that NY will now turn its attention to Eovaldi and J.A. Happ. It's not like the money NY allocated to pursuing Corbin suddenly vanished into thin air, and the Yankees' backup targets reportedly include two notable names: Nathan Eovaldi and J.A. Happ.

The Croatian capped a successful year with the award after he won the Champions League and was a finalist in the 2018 World Cup. Is Modric a worthy victor ? Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe finished fourth to round out the top five.

It's a good deal for Corbin and for the market, even if not all that surprising. Both are on that next tier of starting pitchers, and Keuchel has been linked to Cincinnati on a few occasions over the past week. The Sox could likely sign Keuchel for lower than what the Nationals will give to Corbin.

Though, one other major question remains here.

Ownership could open their wallets and sign a star free agent and find a way to fit said superstar into the lineup, but why waste more money when there are some guys already not earning their pay on the roster?

Basically, the Red Sox won (again) Thursday when Corbin reportedly agreed to sign with the Nationals because it kept him away from the Yankees (or another American League contender). Bumgarner has really made a name for himself in the postseason, posting an impressive 2.11 ERA in 16 games, helping the Giants win three World Series.
