On MLB.com radio they just said that the Nats are one of five teams to which Wilson has a no-trade clause. So I guess that's the hang-up, they are waiting for Wilson to waive his clause.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Not a chance my friend

You saw that too. I couldn't believe it. This thing would've been way out of Shea...

I can't see this move helping P-Will, at all.

Yeah, I don't know what I was thinking. :-b

I'm still not seeing it on any of the rumor sites, where'd you find it, Rocky?

Who would this open up time for in the Rockie OF? Would this make Sullivan an everyday player? Piedra? I'm not hip to the Rockie OF goings on. I know they have about 5 or 6 of them now and want Holliday (if healthy) and Hawpe to get AB's consistantly. Any insight?

Before the deal can be completed, the two clubs must agree on financial terms. Also, Wilson must OK the deal because the Nationals are one of five teams to which he can reject a trade. The commissioner's office also must approve any cash transaction between the teams of more than $1 million.


This deal is FAR from complete.

My bad, I just got home from work. It's posted right on the front of Yahoo Sport's MLB page:

More protection in that Nats lineup is good news for Johnson and Guillen owners, though.

I think it could/should work out b/c that no-trade was put in when they were in montreal. the team is good and the rockies are not.
