Hopefully the Mariners overpay for a guy with great stats who completely go to hell when he gets to Seattle.

Buahahahahaha! I really hope, for Rays fans that he doesn't get signed by them. He should be no more than a Spring Training invite or last minute mid season signing.

Loving the Loney reactions. If you guys end up getting Morse and Espinosa, please give the gNats all your scrub prospects please and thank you.

Signed, Josh Hamilton and the rest of the aging Phillies.

Well yeah. That's almost a guarantee. Hopefully they sign Hamilton and get Manny to come out of retirement

Lucchino said on Sirius radio that the Red Sox are in on Hamiton. The only issue is the amount of years. Red Sox only want to go a max of 5 years, Hamilton wants more. I'd be so pissed if they even offer him a deal. They've already angered me with signing Gomes and talking to Swisher.

Espinosa isn't going anywhere. Rizzo just basically said as much. Morse maybe though.

@Ken_Rosenthal: Many #Nationals folks reluctant to trade Espinosa. “He will figure it out,” one says. “Lombardozzi is a good player, but he’s not Espinosa.”
Also, did anyone see that Arod has to have hip surgery again - so count him out for part of 2013.

Going to be interesting to see what the Mets do. Dickey and Niese are both in play for the right guys but I can see only one of the two being traded.

I actually ran into Rizzo and D. Johnson at a private airport in Orlando yesterday. We spoke for a little bit on the upcoming meetings etc and although they didn't exactly tell me what their plans were they did say they wouldn't mind to add a few pieces to the puzzle. I would love to keep Morse, although he isn't a star (yet) I think he has good potential and he came up big for the Nats in a few games this year when the rest of the bats were dead. There just isn't enough room in the outfield for him unless they put him at 1B which I am not sure he can play that position but we'll see. The one I do not like is Espinoza. Guy is a strike out machine and he's not exactly a gold glover at 2nd either. Lombardozzi is no prize either but I think the Nats can make a big splash in a deal for a solid 2B and possibly a new 1B which would keep Zimmerman from being moved to 1B if Morse is not put there.


Ross Detwiller is someone who the Nats could possibly trade and I am sure there will be a lot of interest in him as he is a good young SP. I don't see the Nats moving him though as I think he will be a solid #4 for them this year. They won't be re-signing E. Jackson so they may be in the market for a #5 for their rotation as they let go of Lannan as well.

Pure speculation I'm guessing but:
