“Many times, teams set the framework for a deal at the Winter Meetings, and will wrap deals up shortly” afterwards which is what we wrote during the Winter Meetings. It looks like general manager Mike Rizzo got a pitcher to take the Washington Nationals’ money. That acquisition is Trevor Williams who has been a starter as well as a bullpen arm. The interesting part was that there were whispers we got that Williams was talking with Rizzo. So we got a quote two days ago that seemed timely, but as he said, he wouldn’t kiss and tell (wink, wink).

The Lerners’ real estate skills don’t translate to baseball

Barry Svrluga rightly suggested in his Dec. 6 Sports column, “Another longtime Nationals star gets a big deal elsewhere. When will it end?,” that at some point it’s just too much for fans of the Washington Nationals to see all of their best former players in starring roles playing for the team’s competitors.
