Greetings, fellow Nats fans! I just signed up here but I have been a season ticket holder (20 game plan) since they moved here. I am in total dream-mode right now, so don't jump on me as I wonder things out loud and look to generate discussion!
With the Yanks signing Ellsbury, i wonder if that means Cano is as good as gone. And I wonder if the Nats take a run. Any contract above 5 years would be madness but....he would be a powerful addition to the lineup.
And then I got to thinking about Ryan Braun and maybe the Nats taking a run there. I reckon the Brewers would love to deal him...maybe the Nats take a chance there. How much did the PEDs affect his numbers? That's the trick with him. Is there prospects the Nats could deal? Solis or Cole plus Michael Taylor and somebody else? Could he play 1B?
Imagine...only IMAGINE this lineup
LaRoche and Scott Hairston part of the bench.
Then have JZimm, Gio, Stras, Fister and Det as the rotation. Clippy, Soriano, Storen and a couple LH in the pen.
Whew, that's crazy. And crazy expensive. Too much money there I reckon, even as rich as the Lerner's are.
