Washington Nationals Trade Ronnie Belliard to Los Angeles Dodgers, Belli-YARD To LA!!

According to a report on the MASN post game show, (and now confirmed in an article by writer Matt Winter entitled, "Nats swept by the Cardinals, Belliard traded"), the Washington Nationals have traded infielder Ronnie Belliard to the Los Angeles Dodgers in return, "...for minor league pitcher Luis Garcia and a PTBNL." Belliard, who had hit .246 with 7 doubles, 5 HR's and 22 RBI's in 86 '09 games with DC, goes to LA for Garcia, a 6'2'' right-hander who is currently (5-3) with a 2.92 ERA and 55 K's in 34 games and 71.0 IP with the Dodgers' Class A affiliate the Great Lakes Loons.

Belliard leaves the Nationals after 3 seasons in DC in which he hit for a .280 AVG in 994 at bats, collecting 64 doubles, 2 triples, 27 HR's and 126 RBI's. 

So long, Ronnie Belliard.
