Does this mean the nats are about to shop Morse very aggressively?
I actually met Meyer in the summer as he's family with friends I have. Great pitcher and even better person. I wish him the best.
The new Nats order could be even better in 2013
Jockertty dragging feet.
Good deal for both teams, and good for Span. The Nats are going to be tough here for a while.
I almost wondered if the Reds wouldn't revisit trade talks for Span. Guess that answers my question. (Not to say they didn't)
Walt will work some magic for something, I'm not concerned on that front.
This is insane to me. The Nats just landed a young, relatively cheap 4 win CF who plays exceptional defense with above average speed and on-base skills (sound like a fit for any other team you know?)... for a 22-year-old who has pitched one year of A-ball. I'm sure Meyer has wonderful potential, but I can't help but see this as an absolute steal.
How did no other team top this deal? Atlanta just gave Upton 75 million dollars - surely that organization had some plus pitching parts to spare; I mean, it's the Braves. We kept hearing about how Minnesota was asking the world for Span. I'm more than a little surprised.
The Nationals absolutely improved themselves on paper with this trade. Nobody has ever won a World Series on paper. The Angels and the Marlins were crowned last offseason with all their splashy moves and it didn't work out. Who knows? Jocketty may have something up his sleeve.
Sitting back and letting teams that were better than you in 2012 obtain better players than you obtain doesn't seem like a winning recipe to me.
