    Nationals Ready to Trade Veterans

    Nationals Ready To Trade Veterans
    By Tim Dierkes [May 27, 2009 at 5:03pm CST]
    Talking to Newsday's Ken Davidoff, Nationals acting GM Mike Rizzo volunteered three trade candidates from his team:

    "Nick Johnson, or (Josh) Willingham, or (Austin) Kearns, anyone on our roster, if we can make a good baseball trade and improve ourselves, not only for our present but also for our future -- a player that can impact us -- we have to make those kinds of trades."

    Also, Rizzo rejected the idea that a Johnson-Manny Delcarmen swap was even discussed with the Red Sox.

    Rizzo said that in general, the Nationals are seeking young, athletic players with high ceilings in trades. It seems possible Rizzo will deal within the NL East, with the Mets seeking a first baseman and the Braves needing outfielders.

    There are only two guys on that team I'd want anything to do with. One of them's not coming back here and the other would require a minimum of Volquez or Cueto. No thanks.

    I thought he was offering Johnson, Willingham & Kearns?
