Last offseason, the Philadelphia Phillies signed away Bryce Harper from the division-rival Washington Nationals. Theyâ€™re apparently interested in signing a Phillies killer away from another National League East foe this winter.
Per Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, the Phillies, along with the Texas Rangers have interest in free-agent third baseman Josh Donaldson, who spent the 2019 season with the Atlanta Braves.
After an injury-riddled 2018 season that he split with the Toronto Blue Jays and Cleveland Indians, Donaldson signed a one-year, prove-it deal with the Braves for $23 million. Well, he proved it, slashing .259/.379/.521 with 37 home runs, 94 RBIs, 100 walks and a 4.9 fWAR. (více...)

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news, from the parade to the roster decisions that followed.
The worst part of Wire Taps comes in the offseason. Aside from the dearth of links to choose from, the photo selection process was often miserable.
Federal Baseball, along with all of SB Nation, has access to two sources of photos, one from Getty Images, and one from USA Today. During the season, ahead of every set of Wire Taps, I comb through the photos of the dayâ€”typically from the most recent gameâ€”and pick a good one. Hereâ€™s the thing, though. In the offseason, nobody is taking pictures of the Washington Nationals. So the same photos from the final game of the season stay up. Last year, they were all of Bryce Harperâ€™s goodbye. The year before, it was photos of the Cubs celebrating in the clubhouse at Nationals Park; the Dodgers the year before that. (více...)
