Portuguese baseball tweets.

It looked important at the time.

Joe Drugan speculating either Storen or Clippard based on Tigers needs. IMO, Det will be in the pen. Roark to be 5th starter.

I just checked around the beat writers tweets and found that Zuckerman has at least noted the trade but with no more info.  Zilch from Wagner and Kilgore.  Having tweeted in at least an hour for both of them.

Possible package: Steve Lombardozzi, Robbie Ray and Ian Krol to #Tigers for Fister. #Nationals

That would be a steal for WSH.

David Cameron of FanGraphs says: "Doug Fister is so underrated.  Nationals fans are going to love him." And:

"Among qualified SPs, Doug Fister ranks 9th in WAR over last three years, between Price and Hamels."

If Krol is in there, then Rizzo really, really, REALLY needs to sign a lefty reliever.

Brian Kenny ‏@MrBrianKenny 6m
Using same criteria: ERA+ leaders last 3 yrs (500ip), Nats now have 3 of Top 10: Gio 5th, Fister 6th, Zim 9th.
Kershaw, Verlander are 1/2.

Last 3 yrs (500+ IP): Doug Fister is 6th best starting pitcher in MLB.

It really would be, which is why I think it will be for more/better players. Hoping I'm wrong, though.

Detroit fans are already pissed and they don't even know who they are getting yet.

...and none of them are named Stephen Strasburg.

There's no way. I'd be shocked.

EDIT: Bowden is saying it's Lombardozzi, Krol and a "minor leaguer." No way.

Again, unconfirmed. All I know for certain is Fister to #Nationals. But strong indications Ray and Lombardozzi are in. Krol maybe.

Fantastic deal if minor leaguer isn't Cole or Little Gio.

The #Nats are expected to send IF Steve Lomabardozzi, P Ian Krol and prospect to #Tigers.

The guy who broke the story is saying "strong indications" it's Ray and Lombo + something else, maybe Krol. Wow.

If it isn't Cole or Giolito, Detroit got freaked hard.
