2 years/10.5 million to remain with the Nats.  Seems a bit paltry for someone who put up a .967 OPS last year, but he's 36, he's probably comfortable in Washington after 3 seasons, it's a bit of a bump after making $7 mil over the last 2 years in DC, and the musical chairs game isn't kind these days to aging vets - even ones who are aging really well.

Likely the starting first baseman for the Nats in 2020 - you don't want to pay $20 for him, but protected at 1B and getting another 100+ ABs, he's got a very good chance of earning it.

Howie slashed .361/.415/.611 this year as a pinch-hitter.

He had 13 pinch hits. In the 13 seasons leading up to this one, he had 14.

The spray chart at Fangraphs shows two homers to right center. Nothing down the right field line. 

Did one of the announcers say he had had done that once before in his career?

Ken Davidson in the Post:

Kendrick’s eternal shot off Harris’ cutter left his bat at 98 miles per hour, the 14th-hardest-hit ball of the night.

"I think I made a pretty good pitch,” Harris said. “He just made a championship play for a championship team.”

Casey Kotchman, Brandon Wood, and Howie Kendrick.  What a system the Angels had back then.

I took Brandon Wood over him with my first pick whatever year that was.  I got Alex Gordon in the 2nd round.  At least that worked out a little.

FWIW, the "poor man's Nick Markakis" not only has 2B eligibility ... but has out-earned Markakis in 7 of the last 9 seasons, including 2019.

A poor man's Nick Markakis.

Howie's complete scan.  None of the batting crowns that were predicted for him -- no black ink, in fact -- but he's always raked.
