Could the Nats swap Wieters and Soto for Realmuto and Ziegler? That would basically have the Nats take on more money, and the Fish could get out from under Ziegler's 9 Million and whatever they would pay Realmuto for Wieters's 10.5 Million.

That would shore up the pen a bit more, fix catcher for the next few seasons, and since they are probably already over the tax threshold this year, they could still go out and sign a starter. I won't believe that the Nats aren't in on Arrieta until he signs with a different team.

Realmuto is in his first arbitration year. They won't save much money. Ziegler, if hes still good, will be valuable at the deadline.

Wieters has no value.
