Clubhouse chemistry is probably a mystery to those people on the inside, much us littles on this board. Who really knows what these guys are really like unless you're there every day.

Of course, that's why we speculate.    :P

I come to you with more info...

I am hearing Morse to As for AJ Cole and 2 prospects.  From the same guy that told me about Laroche.   

Do you know when this will go down?

I hope they are two good prospects!  Basically, if true, it would mean we traded Morse, Milone, Peacock and Norris for Gio and whoever those two prospects are.  And I hope the A's haven't done irrepairable damage to Cole.  (They do seem to have a good track record with developing pitchers, but for whatever reason he didn't have anywhere near the type of year everyone expected.)

This is a terrible trade, if it happens.  Trading away Morse just when it drops that Span is disturbed.

Your predictions are specific and this one is out of left field. If you're correct you are officially an internet Nsider and people will sweat you.

Dang, the Beast would fit right in in Oakland. They will LOVE him out there.

Personally, I hope we keep him.

Span is disturbed.

Lol no.
Depends on the prospects but it could work. It'd be sad to see him go though.

So, Nats just traded Ryan Langerhans and Tommy Milone for Gio Gonzalez?

Cole still hasn't pitched higher than A+ and he was beyond bad there last year.
