Rizzo's explanations (or excuses, depending on which side you're on) about the Nats' disappointing trading deadline:

I'm only disappointed that it was a boring trading deadline overall (league-wide). I'm not disappointed in any of the moves or non-moves. I think we can address CF for much less of the cost than right now in of the offseason.

We weren't getting anything for Todd Coffey or Livan. We got some solid value for a utility player and a mediocre pitcher. Fine with me.
