Report: Stephen Strasburg's opt-out deadline creates awkward timing with World Series parade

Report: Stephen Strasburg's opt-out deadline creates awkward timing with World Series parade

This might get a little awkward.

If World Series MVP Stephen Strasburg opts out of his contract, as he is expected to, it will be have to be by noon Saturday — two hours before the Washington Nationals' championship parade kicks off in the nation's capital, according to MLB.com.

When agent Scott Boras and general manager Mike Rizzo negotiated the extension more than three years ago, it would have been difficult to predict the deadline they set buffered the start of their own championship parade. Given the uniqueness of the situation, MLB.com reports, it's entirely likely the two sides agree to push back the deadline.

For example, Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers delayed his opt-out deadline last offseason before settling on an extension. If such an understanding can't be reached, it's possible Strasburg will be riding a championship float as a free agent.

Strasburg is owed $100 million over the final four years of his deal, as part of the seven-year, $175 million pact he signed in 2016. He can also opt out after the 2020 season.

The right-hander has spent his entire career with Washington, which drafted him first overall in 2009. He established himself as a superior playoff performer during the Nats' title run, going 5-0 with a 1.98 ERA in six appearances and 47 strikeouts in 36 ? innings.
