The Nationals may have won the World Series less than two weeks ago, but it's officially time to stop partying.

Major League Baseball's free agency is upon us, and the Nationals, like all of the other 29 teams, have significant moves to make regarding their future in the coming weeks and months.

Houston's Gerrit Cole, Washington's Anthony Rendon and Stephen Strasburg highlight a free agent class not as loaded as a year ago, but still has plenty of difference-makers available.

Below is our Hot Stove Tracker.
