I'm watching a documentary on Anvil on Netfilx.  Anyone remember them?

Melancon also has a full no-trade clause, but if the Giants were to ask him to waive it, Melancon made clear Sunday how much he enjoyed his stint in Washington.
“It was a great situation, they were first class,” he said. “I really enjoyed my time over there. Just a lot of good people.”

I like the avatar look.

Thanks, I'm going to have to keep it until we get bullpen help or until the existing guys turn it around.

The easiest fix for the Nationals would be to acquire closer David Robertson from the Chicago White Sox. The White Sox are shopping him, the Nationals need him, and they nearly completed a deal for him before spring training. The Nationals, according to executives with direct knowledge of the deal, were to send 19-year-old left-hander Jesus Luzardo and minor league infielder Drew Ward to the White Sox for Robertson, with the White Sox eating about half of the $25 million remaining in his contract. But the deal got hung up over money.

He's been asked and stated he'd be willing to go back to DC.

He has a full no trade, too, I believe. Probs not gonna approve a trade 2 months into a 4 year deal. I wouldn't.

I've been hearing some rumblings about Melancon. Is that something we would want? Would his big contract mean that Nats would give up less prospects? Does his recent stint on DL change things?

Moot point. SF isn't going to trade him away unless they go full-on rebuild. More likely, they're going to want to keep their core, replace some of the aging/unproductive veterans, and try to be contenders next year.  Heck, I don't even think they've fully given up on contending this year.

Hindsight is 20/20, but Holland/Robertson would be looking really good right now.
It looked pretty good in January and February, too...
