The Nationals and Stephen Strasburg appear no closer to finalizing an agreement that would allow the right-hander to retire and receive the balance of his contract.

The plan in place that would allow Strasburg to retire last fall apparently fell apart in the end because some in ownership vetoed it, presumably in the hopes of recovering at least a small part of the $105 million that Strasburg is owed over the next three years. Nationals GM Mike Rizzo, who certainly appears to be on Strasburg’s side, said there was a request for assistance from MLB and the MLBPA on the matter, but that they chose to stay out of it. One wonders if the Nationals will go through the motions of having Strasburg report to spring training to collect his money, something they didn’t do last season. Strasburg’s pitching career is over, either way, but he still has obligations to the team, should the Nationals wish to enforce them. Dec 27 10:39 am (EST)
