There's some skepticism at NationalsArmsRace that the Nats would have turned down the deal.  The links are in the Closer Thread.

Definitely hard to believe the Nats would turn that down.

Even if the Nats had to pay  $15mill for 2 years, Ward and Luzardo for Robertson would be a steal. A guy who is seemingly blocked and hasn't exactly lit up the minors and a guy who's 3/4 years(minimum) away from the bigs that hasn't thrown a professional pitch yet for a proven closer is a great deal.
