It was the Nationals who declined Lind’s option, by the way.

Of course they did. They may look like a team getting ready to win the World Series but the smell of bad fish is in the air.

If the Nats picked up their side of the option, did you believe Lind would pick up his half of the option? This was a mutual option not a team option. Chill.

If they pick up the option & he doesn’t, they don’t have to pay the 500k buyout. This move makes no sense IMO

Where's his contract? There are buyouts sometimes if any side turns down the option. A $500,000 parting gift.

If Nats picked up and he declined the Nats would have owed him the 500k

Fair point. But if that’s the case, why not pick up option? Isn’t he worth $5 mill.?

He is but Nats also don't want to eat money they don't have to. In addition maybe they worked out deal with him to test market

I thought it was a moot point because Lind was going to decline it. As someone said it's like the player who turns down the $17 mill Qualified Offer just to sign a 2 year $22 million deal.
