The Washington Nationals continue to make a statement of intent this offseason, as they added arguably the market's top starting pitcher, Patrick Corbin. There are a number of starting pitchers available for the Sox to sign to help improve their starting rotation.

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.

According to Spotrac.com, his calculated market value is a five-year deal worth $103 million with an average annual salary of 20.6 million.

Trump to attend Bush’s funeral, won’t deliver eulogy
House Speaker Paul Ryan alluded to that political setback in his Capitol remarks and said Bush handled defeat with grace. The dog was assigned earlier this year as a service dog to Bush, who used a wheelchair in the last years of his life.

Corbin was considered the top free agent pitcher on this year's market and will cost the Nationals their second- and fifth-highest picks in next year's MLB Draft, as well as $1 million in global bonus pool money.

Corbin also was an All-Star in 2013 when he went 14-8 with a 3.41 ERA. While others could make the argument for Dallas Keuchel, Corbin seemed to be favorite among most baseball experts, and for good reason. It was the culmination of slow and steady progress Corbin has made after missing the 2014 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. In 33 starts for the Arizona Diamondbacks, he went 11-7 with a 3.15 ERA.

Fans may not have to wait much longer for news of Corbin's signing, either, as Fancred's Jon Heyman reported that Corbin's decision is "expected to come soon". Philadelphia is ready to win, and they don't have time to give Suarez 30 starts to learn how to pitch in the big leagues. He has a wealth of postseason experience to go along with winning the Cy Young award in the American League in 2015 and being a four-time Gold Glove award victor.

People are losing their minds because Michelle Obama said ‘sh
Specifically, she takes issue with the idea that women can (and often are expected to) "have it all". That's a lie , and it's not always enough to lean in, because that shit doesn't work all the time".

Want your voice heard? The Winter Meetings will begin on Sunday and the Sox should be one of the more aggressive teams attempting to improve their ballclub for the future.

With free agency looming, Corbin re-established himself as one of the elite lefties in the game in 2018.
