For sure if they went after Segura that would seem to indicate they want Harper more than Machado. Though they could also move Segura to 3B.
Who knows if the Nats are frontrunners. I wouldn't underestimate the budding romance between Middleton and Boras. Also getting Hoskins out of LF would be a plus for that (if not, Boras himself should be getting his player off-season work/instruction).
Kingery (and, ahem, Nola) aside, it also seems like maybe this front office is just down on nearly everything they inherited from Amaro, Gillick and Wolever at this point, and moving on from Jordan kind of says that too. What's puzzling is they've stuck with Almaraz.
Meanwhile, actual news, Bour and Avilan are gone.
