Re: Boswell on Nationals future
Well, if you're the Nats, you're going to have to overpay to get someone like Werth. And from what I hear, despite their suckitude, they have plenty of money to pass out. Basically they were going to give big money to a hitter and they decided it wouldn't be Adam Dunn. Then they went and surprised everyone by landing Werth, but that's better than doing nothing IMO. They have a new stadium and couldn't just stand pat.
The Strasburg injury just killed any momentum they had going as an organization. He was going to sell tickets all by himself. Plus they have some other good young talent in the hopper, like by Bryce Harper. Zimmerman is a nice building block as a "young veteran" so to speak at 3B. If not for the Strasburg injury, people in DC would be fired up about them this year.
