From Rotoworld w/ Rotoworld comments:
Nationals declined OF Austin Kearns' $10 million option for 2010.
This might be the no-brainer of the offseason. Kearns hit just .195/.336/.305 this season with three home runs and 51 strikeouts in 174 at-bats. The Nationals handed him a $1 million buyout to go away.
