Both Mike Trout and Bryce Harper could potentially sign record-breaking contracts in the MLB offseason this year, but what if the two were drafted to the same team? Mike Trout is undoubtedly the best player in Major League Baseball, but when he entered the MLB Draft in 2009, no one knew what he would become. Which is why he was selected 25th overall by the Los Angeles Angels. The No. 1 overall pick in that year's draft, Stephen Strasburg, was selected by the Washington Nationals, but what if the Nationals knew back then what we all know now about Trout, and take him with the top pick? Then, use their 2010 No. 1 pick to select Bryce Harper.Think back to the 2012 postseason, the Nationals had a monumental meltdown in the the ninth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals allowing four runs, and eventually losing the series. Or how about 2015, the year that both Harper and Trout hit 40 home runs. Washington missed the postseason completely mainly because they couldn't win divisional games against the New York Mets. Trout's presence in the lineup would've drastically changed Nationals' history.
