It's such a funny trade...almost like Dombrowski asked for different guys and Rizzo slowly talked him out of them one by one.

Like he originally asked for Espinosa, Clippard and Cole/Giolito and Rizzo gave him the homeless man's version of each piece.

 :hysterical: That's exactly what it feels like.

FYI, Matt Yallof will be on Inside MLB at 10 tonight on MLB Network.  We'll see if this show is live or taped earlier in the evening by whether they discuss this trade or not.

It's taped. I'm sure it'll lead almost everything on MLB Network tomorrow, unless something else breaks.

Sure. Or Cano signing somewhere or Ellsbury.  Or another big trade.  Any number of things.  Regardless, it'll be a big talking point.

Yep, hopefully some offensive moves still to come, but a good night for Nats fans for sure :)

They cut in live earlier to mention full coverage tomorrow at 9:00am...

That's why I love XM - live baseball talk all the time.  Even during the offseason, they've got live shows from 7a to 11p eastern (they go until 2 or 3a during the season).  Craig Mish (?) and Kevin Kennedy are hosting tonight and they both loved the trade for the Nats.

They may as well sign Cano now. They dont need to spend big on FA pitching for a while. And go ahead and sign Morse for the  bench.

Signing Morse would be a terrible idea. It'd lead to fans clamoring for him to play... not because he's good, but because of their love of his walk-up music and the fact that he's fan friendly.

we were just fine in the last few months, give us a healthy Harper and we're good.  Give us Cano, and we're elite.

If he gets hot, he's a better first baseman than Laroche

Technically no, but back in 2010 or 2011, the Yankees considered arranging a deal with Arizona where they would have signed Carl Pavano, who I think would have cost a compensation pick, and then dealt him to the Yankees during the season.

He's not polarizing, he's uniting.

Morse left after an injury-riddled year where he:
 a) hit a three-run bomb in Game 5 that will be forgotten, but not by me; and,
 b) played crape outfield defense that cost runs

If he had the cleanest bill of health, I could stomach him as the platoon first-baseman.
