Admittedly, I don't know much about the A's system... But that seems like a pretty light return for Willingham.

While Willingham is not that good, that is a light haul for him, IMO. Nats fans are, for the most part, quite pissed about this one, as Willingham was seen as one of the few tradeable assets that the team could afford to trade. Maybe Rizzo is looking to flip these guys in a larger deal.

Pretty sure Henry Rodriquez was that guy who hit 101 a couple of times against the SOX this year. I sure wouldn't mind having him.

Still a pretty weak return.

There's more to pitching than just throwing the ball really super hard.

Oh really? I had no idea. Thanks for the enlightening statement.
