    Don't hold your breath on this. Only one person has "confirmed" this.

    Nats look for real, if this is true. I question the pen, the defense, and the rotation has a couple holes, but they're, IMO, right there in the NL East hunt with the Marlins, the Phillies, and the Braves.

    The fourth-best team in that division might beat the best team in the other National League divisions.

    Wow! If this is confirmed the Nationals are really going for the gold. Hard to find a better first-third combo in the game, either. Add their young pitching and they look legit.

    Even before this signing, I had made the bold statement as my 'surprise' division winner for 2012 being the Nats. This would only shore up that statement that I made.

    This wold also shore up their OF as well, since they can move Morse back there full time and then have Werth and from what I heard earlier, I believe that Davey said he may give Bryce Harper a shot in ST. They are really shoring up their starting 8.

    Huge gamble if true. No guarantees that Prince will be able to get off the couch (much less the bench) five years from now. Never thought he'd get 8 years from anyone.

    I really felt Fielder would do the same as Pujols and go to the AL, so he could eventually become a DH later in his career.

    If this is true, the Nats, Marlins and Phillies will really be duking it out in that division.

    It hasn't happened yet - they may be working on a deal according to Jim Bowden, but nothing is done. The original source is a guy on twitter who claims to have broken other signing news but no evidence can be found that he actually has, or that is what I took from the article. In other words, another twit tweeting.
