Less than a week after winning the franchise's first World Series, the Washington Nationals are headed to the White House on Monday after accepting an invitation from President Trump.

The decision means 31-year-old Strasburg leaves $100 million on the table - with the prospect of earning more, either from the Nationals or another team. However, that contract gave him an option to opt-out after the 2019 or 2020 seasons.

There is rampant spyware hacking in this country. "Later when I tried calling him, he said that he was busy", the lawyer told TNM. WhatsApp managed to tie certain WhatsApp accounts used during the attacks back to NSO, as it describes in the complaint .

In the case that Strasburg uses the opt-out to listen to offers around the league, Matt Klentak and the front office will face steep competition for the Nationals all-time leader in strikeouts.

The right-hander won two games in the World Series, including a pivotal Game 6 in Houston in which he became the first starter to go at least eight innings in a World Series since Matt Harvey did so in Game 5 in 2015.

He likely would command a lower price because of age and durability. Hyun-Jin Ryu, Zack Wheeler, Madison Bumgarner, Rick Porcello, Cole Hamels, Jake Odorizzi and Dallas Keuchel will all be looking for new deals. The deal included a $10 million signing bonus that was payable July 1 this year and salaries of $15 million in both 2017 and 2018.

For some reason, Washington Post then made a decision to whitewash al-Baghdadi and refer to him as " austere religious scholar ". But one particular story published by the Washington Post grabbed most eyeballs, garnering a lot of negative attention.

Once upon a time, the Cubs were connected to Strasburg via rumors, but that was before he extended with the Nationals. There are never any sure things when dealing with Boras Company, so we will see how this plays out. The Nats will also try to bring back third baseman Anthony Rendon, the top free agent position player and one of the top three overall free agents alongside Cole and Strasburg. For the Nationals, that meant it was time to party; for everyone else, it meant that the offseason was near.
