Kyle Lohse?
« Topic Start: February 12, 2013, 12:51:17 PM »
per rotoword via WP:

"Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post writes that the Nationals "may try to swoop in and sign" free agent right-hander Kyle Lohse.
The idea would be to add him as insurance in case left-hander Gio Gonzalez faces a 50-game suspension for his reported connection to Biogenesis, a Miami-based clinic which allegedly distributed performance-enhancing drugs to players. Lohse's market has taken a big hit this winter because he is tied to draft pick compensation, but he would still figure to be expensive insurance. Still, the possibility can't be ruled out given the relationship between the Nationals and Lohse's agent, Scott Boras. The Nationals already gave up their first-round pick to sign fellow Boras-client Rafael Soriano, so adding Lohse means they would have to surrender their second-round pick. "

Would be in line with the "World Series or bust" theme for sure.

The eternally lovely Jim Bowden says: "Mike Rizzo told me there is no truth to their present interest in Kyle Lohse"

There is little to no chance that anyone will be suspended (including A-Roid) because of this.

Kilgore is starting to get on my nerves. He says "the Nationals may try to swoop in and sign free agent right-hander Kyle Lohse" without any clue whatsoever as to what that's based on.  Does he just make this stuff up?

He's a reporter. He has sources, I'm sure.

He did the same thing with Soriano a couple of weeks before we signed him.

If we sign Lohse I'll take back what I said about him.

I think what PC means is that we won't need a backup plan.
