Flubs would be wise to dismantle and rebuild. The "fans" wouldn't notice a thing.

"Losing---business as usual" They could start next year with an entire new starting staff and 50% of their fans would be talking smack about Wood, Prior and Maddox and how they'd be healthy next season.

They just said on a SC Update that the deal was off for financial reasons. It was Gammons so take it for what it is worth.

Nothing is official between the Nats and Rox. Don't be surprised at all if Preston ends up with the Cubs by the end of the weekend.

I guess we have an answer to the question of whether MLB would give the Nationals the financial leeway to improve their club.

They sure didn't give up much for him.

And what a perfect Cubbie he would be; costs a lot, decent power, terrible OBP. Would fit in nicely. Hendry's a genius.

Which if it is true is just ludicrous on MLB's part. The Nationals are in first place and drawing a ridiculous number of fans to the park, so many that they're sizably over their projected attendance and revenue figures. The Nats really need an ownership group, because it seems MLB just isn't going to let them do much of anything.

LOL

Well, I thought the judicial notice rule would apply here. You know the rule that says in court you don't need an expert witness to testify that humans need oxygen to breathe in order to live, etc.

According to the Washington Post the Sox might be involved (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/07/08/AR2005070802156.html). They could get Zach Day from Washington. It would be a three way trade. Isn't Day hurt though?

Perhaps this might be WTS material, but I've always liked Zach Day, though he's far from an elite starter that would make any difference whatsoever at playoff time.

The only thing I could think of is a.) Day could be used in another trade or b.) Day could replace McCarthy or Contreras at the back of the rotation if one or both of them is traded

That would make sense if he's hurt. Pretty much ever rumor machine has us involved with hurt players, recently hurt players, players with arms in slings, etc.

Who would they give up though?

Boy, first Okha and now Day... is there a problem with Frank Robinson and pitchers?yes sort of. Day has a great sinker and the versatility to start or relieve. He struggled throwing strikes early this year. He is a quiet, sensitive guy who seemed to wilt under the intensity of Frank Robinson. Just when the Nats were sending Day to the minors, they found that he had a broken forearm and put him on the disabled list. Day's value has been further diminished by the injury, so the Nationals might want to swap Day for a healthy prospect to have a better chip to trade for the deadline considerations.
