From Rotoworld:
Esteban Loaiza may get the three-year deal he's seeking from the Nationals, TSN's Ken Rosenthal reports.
It's looking like Washington GM Jim Bowden won't have the money to sign Odalis Perez, and Loaiza is a valid fallback option. We can't imagine even he would really go to three years to bring in the 2004 bust, but two years could be a possibility. According to Rosenthal, Loaiza is also receiving interest from the Indians, Dodgers, Red Sox and Mets. The first two probably have more than the last two. Dec. 10 - 10:11 pm et

Bowden prides himself on finding pitching bargains by signing former aces with injury problems to long, low-paying contracts, giving them a chance to both help his team and revitalize their careers. This doesn't surprise me, and its a reasonably sound investment.
