Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that Ian Desmond turned down a seven-year, $107 million contract extension from the Nationals last offseason.
It seems like a crazy sum of money to reject, but Desmond is due to make a cool $11 million in 2015 -- his final year of salary arbitration -- and should then hit it big on the free agent market next winter. Or he could wind up signing an extension worth even more than $107 million at some point this year with the Nats. Desmond, 29, has rattled off three straight 20-homer, 20-steal seasons.
