Was Bowden Lying?
Although it appears we’ve dodged the bullet, the AZ Republic notes that the Nats offered a contract to Shawn Estes. Yeah, that Shawn Estes. Bowden supposedly said that he wouldn’t be spending the $5 or $6 million they’ve got left on pitching. Hopefully, he said that after he made an offer to the guy. Unless… he’s going to trade one of the arbitration-eligible pitchers.
