Continued greatness:
- he suggests the Nats will trade Marrero in spring training - yeah, when he's at rock-bottom value

- Espinosa won't let Davey sit him if he's hurting

The Nats will trade Marrero?  For what?  Cutter Dykstra?

He also says he sees Zimm at 3B for many years and he says that Rendon will play another position.  Funny how if the Nats really felt that way, don't you think by this point they would season him at another position ala Matt Skole at 1B?

how many more options does marrero have- I think only 1- he was added to the 40 man in November, 2010, so he burned one in 2011 and another in 2012- that leaves just 2013- if my math/understanding of options is correct, I'd say Rizzo tries to deal him in the next year

Yeah, I think Marrero is starting 1B in AAA this year. 

I think healthy Espinosa is better than Lombardozzi, but I have serious doubts about whether or not we see healthy Espinosa.  And if we do see him, how long that lasts before a hard slide or a dive aggravates his shoulder.
