Look closely. Really closely.
C’mon, you’re almost there. I bet you can see it. Do you?
an actual nationals rumor
Did ‘ya see it? THAT’S RIGHT! THERE WAS A REAL, LIVE RUMOR YESTERDAY! Can you believe it? Get out your seismographs, folks, because that just registered a 9.9 on the Richter Scale.
Here’s the news from Nats Park.
Nationals show interest in Realmuto, Yelich
Apparently the Nationals are interested in both J.T. Realmuto (catcher) and Christian Yelich (outfield). They probably wouldn't get both -- if they did, it would certainly require parting with either Victor Robles or Juan Soto -- or both.
The Nats are staying in place and somehow getting better
Well, it's not that they're getting better. It's that nearly everyone in their way is getting worse, and there's no way for them to be more injured next year.
Have also heard for a few weeks what @Ken_Rosenthal reported, which is that Nats also considering Alex Avila as catching help.— Chelsea Janes (@chelsea_janes) January 4, 2018

Nats reveal report dates
Here's another nugget: The first full-squad workout is on February 21st.
#Marlins NOT seeking to attach Prado, Castro or any other high-salaried player to Yelich and/or Realmuto in trade talks, sources tell The Athletic. Financial pressure no longer as severe; payroll currently projects to $96.8M, per Cot’s Baseball Contracts. MIA seeking best talent.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) January 5, 2018
Wieters in better shape, wants full workload
Mike Rizzo has said that the Nats want to decrease Matt Wieters' workload to make him more productive. Wieters, having lost weight, feels he can play as many games as he did last year, if not more, and be way, way more productive.
