This deal is FAR from complete.

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.


It's not the NTC that's the biggest obstacle.

The money changing hands to a team with no owner might be, IMO.

What are the NATS thinking? Unless they know somthing a/b Ryan Church we don't this trade makes no sense for them at all. Why even mess w/ the comraderie on that team to get a player who is substantially suckier & more expensive than the one you've got? Man, some of these GM's are really, really clueless. There is a reason why the expos sucked for so long. I'm assuming its Church that gets squeezed if this (horrendous) deal goes through.
J.Lo? I knew her back when they said "Hey, ho".

I don't want Preston to leave Coors! :~( :~( :~(

Glad to see the trade rumors didn't stop him from hitting a jack tonight though. :-)

Trade for Wilson seems unlikely

By Mark Zuckerman
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
July 9, 2005

PHILADELPHIA -- Despite reports the Washington Nationals agreed to a deal that would send pitcher Zach Day and outfielder J.J. Davis to the Colorado Rockies for outfielder Preston Wilson, financial ramifications and Wilson's no-trade clause have prevented the swap.
The Sporting News reported on its Web site yesterday that the Nationals and Rockies had a done deal, but club and league sources insisted that was not the case. The obstacles that have kept the trade from being finalized for weeks remain.
The key sticking point continues to be Wilson's $12.5 million contract, of which about $6 million still is owed. The Rockies are looking for a trade partner to pay at least $3 million of Wilson's salary, and the Nationals are unlikely to take on that much.
Even should the teams agree on financial terms, Wilson has the right to nix a deal because Washington is one of six clubs included in his limited no-trade clause. Sources close to the outfielder said he would waive the no-trade clause only if he does not lose any money.
The Rockies also have been talking to the Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers about a deal for Wilson, and those clubs appear to have a leg up on Washington.
If a man dwells on the past, then he robs the present.
But if a man ignores the past, he may rob the future.

Wow, I didn't know his home splits were that bad. :-o
