Nats trade thoughts

We all expect the Nats to trade somebody before the season starts, and Willingham seems like the guy most likely to be traded, but I can't see many teams with any need for him.  The worst OFs in baseball probably fall to Pittsburg and Seattle.  But, both teams are looking to get younger and Willingham is 30 years old.  So I doubt they would have interest.  Millage however might interest them.  He could upgrade both those teams in LF.  But, I do not see the Nats trading Millage after we gave up to regular starters to a playoff team for him.  The only other team that seems to have a need is Atlanta.  I doubt we trade Willingham to Atlanta since he would be hitting homers off our pitchers this season and making us look bad.  Given everday at bats he will hit 30+ homers virtually guarranteed. 

 

So my thinking at this point is we will wait until injuries hit somebody in the outfield then we will trade.  Unfortunately that probably means a guy we like like langerhans will be asked to go to AAA.  WMP is gone for sure
