What's up everybody, first time poster here on federal baseball. I have read FB for a while and always appreciated all the commenters, who seem to really know what they're talking about. My boys and I have been debating for a while about what to do this offseason, which seems like the most important offseason the Nats have ever had. I really am not sure what approach we should take. There are some big names out there and it seems like the Nats are always mentioned as being linked to about half of them. Clearly we still need our leadoff man and at least another top of the rotation pitcher. There are some names out there I like and some guys I am scared of. The other issue that is still a little murky is who are we identifying as core players that are staying put and what positions definitely need upgrading. To me Ryan Zim, Espinosa, Morse, Werth (I guess?), Ramos, Stras, J Zimm, Clipp, and Storen are guys that have solidified, or are on their way to solidfying themselves as every day players on this team. Off our bench I like Nix and Ankiel a lot. So I guess that leave SS, CF, and at least another top 3 pitcher? The remainder of the year is huge for Desmond, he needs to put it together. If Desmond continues his "so-so" ways, What do you guys think about going after Jose Reyes? The other day was my first time watching him in person and I came away extremely impressed. He would solve the leadoff hitter problem thats for sure. At the same time, however, I know a lot of people on this website like Lombardozzi coming up. I can't say I know much about him. If he really is legit, I wouldn't want to stunt his growth. One pitcher I would like to go after hard is CJ Wilson but he's another guy who will break the bank. I have seen us linked to Prince Fielder a bunch of times but he scares me a little and I like Morse at first. I dont know, I guess I am confused as to what sort of moves we should make. I wanted to see what you guys thought. I know one thing, a lineup of 1- Reyes    2- Espinosa  3-Zimm   4-Morse   5- Werth   6-Harper   7-? (Bernadina??)   8-Ramos  would look good to me. Rotation of Stras, Wilson, J Zimm, Lannon, Livo? Sorry if i rambled. What are your ideas?
