Nats have no voids right now. All the spots are filled with guys currently on the roster. If they think bringing back LaRoche and trading Morse would be an upgrade, they'd do it.
Ray D - if Rizzo went so far as to have an agreement in place with LaRoche before the Span trade, why wouldn't he have done the same for Morse in a trade? Or at least gauged his value with other teams?
I'm perfectly happy keeping Morse as the 1B for 2013 and pocketing the pick for LaRoche. I don't buy the argument that LaRoche improves the whole infield defense. He is probably a little better at fielding grounders and catching popups at 1B, but I dont think he would affect Desmond's and Zimmerman's defense. And I definitely don't buy the LH bat argument. Morse is just as good, if not better, against RHPs.
