The Nationals made this move obviously because they didn't want to pay Bourn.
We need to face the idea that 2013 has no major FA coming and possibly no trades of signifance.
That doesn't mean they can't add a Corey Hart and/or other OF that can help us compete.
A move like the Nationals made today is a "win now" type move and this team is not winning now.
This team should be steady win loss wise next year if they resign Wright and Dickey. Its not like they will win 55 to 60 and need complete rebuilding.
You win 75 games next year with two developing possible aces and Hart/other OFs can make this a playoff team.
The second wildcard team in the NL could win 85-88 games to be a playoff team. The Mets are not far away from that with the right u.pgrades

The "we still have" guys are a reference to Young Stunna, who said a move for Gordon would deplete the farm.

"Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."
