Janssen: Nationals offer 'wasn't necessarily the best deal' on table


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2015) Reliever Casey Janssen passed up the opportunity to sign with another team to be a setup man and backup closer for the Nationals. He also chose the Nationals for an opportunity to pitch in the postseason.

Although, signing with the Nationals apparently meant leaving better offers on the table, per The Washington Post.

“I had some other interested teams,” Janssen said. “This wasn’t necessarily the best deal I had on the table. But at the end of the day, Washington brought the opportunity to pitch late in the game, to pitch meaningful games late in September and hopefully in the postseason. …

“From my end, seeing what they’ve done the last few years and making it to the postseason and then what they did with Max Scherzer and the other pieces that were already in place, this is a very talented team. You get a chance to play in the World Series. Being from Toronto and not having been in the playoffs for however many years it’s been for me, they were definitely high on my list knowing that there could be an opportunity, if all goes well, to play in the postseason.”
