FOXSports.com Reporting Florida Marlins Acquire Washington Nationals' First Baseman Nick Johnson....

SAY IT AIN'T SO, RIZZO!!!!!

MLB trade deadline buzz: Friday's edition - MLB News - FOX Sports on MSN - Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi.

"The Marlins have acquired first baseman Nick Johnson for the Nationals for Class AA left-hander Aaron Thompson, according to a major-league source."

The MLB Network just confirmed what was considered a dead deal an hour ago, or at least cited Mr.'s Rosenthal and Morosi's report that the Marlins have in fact acquired Nick Johnson from the Nationals in return for minor league pitcher Aaron Thompson. Washington Post writer Chico Harlan wrote that the, "Nick Johnson trade to Florida fell through and he'll be in uniform for the Nationals tonight," but that report is time stamped at 3:15 pm EST, while the MLB Network report and the FOXSports.com article both say a deal has been completed. The FOXSports.com article is time stamped 3:53 pm EST.

• Washington Nationals - Nationals Journal - Tracee Hamilton, "Johnson to Marlins, Beimel to Rockies"...

"Nick Johnson has been traded to the Marlins for minor league starter Aaron Thompson. The deal was completed right at the 4 p.m. deadline. The lineup in the Nats' clubhouse was just taken down..."

• Joe Frisaro (JoeFrisaro) on Twitter

"...some last minute wheeling and dealing has landed Nick Johnson with Florida..."

• MiLB.com Player Page: Aaron Thompson.

So who plays first tonight?
