Dang! FOXSports.com's Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) has to know that Adam Dunn despises all this talk, but the FOX sports reporter won't stop with the rumors.

Mr. Morosi next added the Detroit Tigers to a list of teams supposedly not pursuing the Nats' big-middle-of-the-order bat Adam Dunn, along with the, "#Giants [who] have "minimal" interest in Dunn at current price, source says." But he and Yahoo!Sports.com's Tim Brown (@TBrownYahoo) have both reported, as Mr. Brown wrote on Twitter within the last hour:

"Twins and Nats in discussions over RHP Matt Capps."

And as of just a few minutes ago, Mr. Morosi (@jonmorosi) sent out the following message:
