While the Nationals have in fact continued to pursue a middle infielder, with the choice seemingly narrowed to either Orlando Hudson or Adam's Jon Paul Morosi and Ken Rosenthal are reporting today, in an update of's "Buzz: Latest from the MLB offseason", which is subtitled, "Free agent LHP Davis draws interest from Twins, Brewers", that in addition to the attentions of the titular teams, the writer's unnamed "major-league source", believes, "(Doug) Davis is also drawing interest from the Mets and Nationals."
