Did the Nationals overpay?
The Nationals are no strangers to big contracts, but they've got to be hoping that the $100 million deal they just gave Ryan Zimmerman will work out a lot better than the similar deal they gave Jayson Werth.
Will Washington contend?
Zimmerman's deal will keep him in Washington through his prime years, and he'll be able to enjoy the benefits of Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper coming into their own.
Harper or Strasburg?
Speaking of Harper and Strasburg, it seems likely that they'll be playing in at least a few games together near the end of this season, when Harper is inevitably called up from the minors.
