    From Nats twitter account. For Alex Meyer.

    Ugh...high price. Not sure I like trading Meyer away. But SP for the future is well set right now.

    There is no certainty that he will be a starting pitcher he might end up being a high-end reliever and we had a hole that needed to be filled and we did

    That's true, nothing is certain with him. High price but I'm okay with it.

    A win now move by Rizzo. Only questions that remain are with LaRoche. Sign him and trade Morse or put the beast at first?

    I say let Laroche walk. I think he wants too many years and the nats aren't willing to give him that. He probably doesn't want much more money per year but he wants a longer term deal. I bet he woukd take 3the yrs/40mil. I don't think it's worth giving him a deal like that. I want to keep Morse and let him play 1B.

    I like it. A lot. Especially as it balances our lineup from the top down. Very good defensively and hit .283 with 38 doubles and 17 stolen bases. Davey doesn't like to run anyway so 17 would be a nice number.

    Does this mean we can go after Grienke now?

    I like the sound of this "Rizzo says #Nats still talking with LaRoche. Span trade "gives us some options in dealing with our roster."

    I like Greinke but don't want to spend the money. JZimm and others will need it soon enough. Plus I think the Dodgers will hand him a blank check.

    Also something that may be forgotten. With the willingness to deal Meyer I feel like Rizzo is confident in not only Lucas Giolito's and Sammy Solis' recovery but also in guys like Matt Purke or Nathan Karns which makes me feel better.

    This also keeps Brian Goodwin in the minors for a little while longer until he is ready he is our future centerfielder after all.

    Twins fan here...of all the teams to see Span go to I'm glad to see him go to the Nats

    How high we're you guys on Meyer? I haven't heard of him so I'm curious
    M.V.P.

    I'm high on Meyer. Of course it is potential based though because he was a first round draft pick.

    But I understand the trade. Nats get a need and Twins have to hope Meyer pans out.

    At this point I agree that we should let Morse take over 1B again. I just don't see LaRoche being able to put up another season like that for another 2-3 years. We saw what a fully-healthy Michael Morse was capable of in 2011. On the other hand I'm going to contradict myself here but how would you guys feel if we signed LaRoche and dealt Morse say to Tampa, for James Shields?

    That would be ideal in my eyes. We need someone to replace the hole in the rotation that Jackson's (probable) leaving will have. Shields could come in and give us the same type of numbers. I think that'd be a very good trade for us.

    There was a rumor online of Morse and Espinosa for Shields was a possibility but that feels like too much to give up.

    Mmmmm ... McBuckets
