Reds trade-Sam Lecure(AAA) and Matt Maloney(AAA)
Nats trade-Josh Willingham and low A prospect.
Willingham then platoons with Nix while Gomes becomes #5 OF with Dickerson being sent to Louisville.
The first one has no chance of getting the conversation to continue. The second one could have some option to it though.
If we go asking for Zimmerman, they are gonna throw back names like Volquez, Cueto, Bruce, Votto....not all of them obviously but SOME of them.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:

Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
