Based on Rizzo's last deal my guess is we added Harper to the deal for a PTBNL.

No word yet that I can find on what we got, if anything. Oh Rizzo...you scare me now.

It's been nearly 20 minutes since the tweet about Danny being traded was posted and there's been virtually nothing else from anyone. Like everyone took the night off after a long week.

if he has been traded, that means we may be getting Jansen.

This is the tweet. Doesn't cover either team. Literally the only thing out there on it from anyone in the media.

LOL-Leap of faith much? He made $5M. We aren't getting Jansen. I promise you.

Yeah that is not a source. I'd be shocked.

#Angels acquire Danny Espinosa per @jnorris427. 2 prospects heading to WSH.

Thank god. Rizzo scares me.

#Nats announce they've traded Danny Espinosa to #Angels for minor-league RHPs Austin Adams and Kyle McGowin.

I'd imagine they'll be worthy replacements of Giolito and Lopez, no question.

That's more than the bag of balls most of y'all thought we'd get for him. Rizzo is a wizard!

Yes, these aren't prospects.

I know people hate Danny's bat (frustrating), but his defense will be missed.

Can't play defense from the bench...

We are at Anaheim in mid-July.  That should be must-see TV.

We stand corrected:

#Nationals acquire Kyle McGowin from #Angels as part of Danny Espinosa trade. McGowin was No. 20 on Halos' Top 30: http://atmlb.com/1Sv3THI
