Signing Fielder Means the End of Morse's time in DC

Many people who desperately want the Nationals to sign Fielder don's seem to realize that it will come at the expense of Michael Morse. If Fielder comes to the nations capital, there will be no spot for Morse on the 2013 roster; next offseason Rizzo is expected to sign a leadoff CF, move Werth to LF, Haper to RIght, and Fielder will be entrenched a 1st. Morse will literally have no postion to play.

While many people have looked at signing Prince as closing the door to opportunities, signing him actually opens the door. Think about how many trade options we now would have. Morse would bring a lot in trade value. Plus, we wouldn't be liable if he has a slump year. Trade him while his value is high!

Face it, Morse is not a part of the Nationals plans. We might as well get some value out of him while we can.

Possible trades:

Morse for Gardner (NY needs DH)

Morse for Gerrardo Parra or Chris Young (Arizona's got outfield depth and need cheap first base help)

Probably many more teams would want Morse!!!
