I can see Bowden high-fiving himself as he reads comments like these (assuming he does).The trade has been great for the Nats so far, but at some point we are going to have to trade for some middle relievers and a closer. Mike Stanton is an absolute nightmare and Chad Cordero just can't keep hoping for miracles to get him out of the jams he sets up almost every time he appears.

But hey, at least they've still got Brendan Harris and that Thompson kid to look forward to.And Brandon, Stanton's not that bad. Besides, it's not an official game until he pitches.If Bowden trades for middle relief I will shoot him myself. Bad teams do not trade for relievers. They comb through the garbage looking to wring the last bit of effectiveness out of guys like Hector Carrasco and Micah Bowie.As for the Chief, he is what he is. He puts guys on base and will sometimes give up the gopher ball. But he closes out often enough that you can't credit it all to divine intervention. He's young, cheap and one of the most recognizable guys on the team. Trade him before his walk year, sure. Before then, no way.

Wirth each game they playu in a Nats uniform both Lopez and Kearns are proving Bowden got the better of the trade for Majewski/Bray/Clayton et al.

Bray has been great in nearly every appearance. Majewski has been awful in every appearance.No matter, Reds still won and have been winning a lot since the trade.

Correlation equals causation, D?No matter, if it helps the Reds get to the playoffs this year, it's a win-win. Continue to enjoy Royce's patented 5 ft fielding radius. ;)

Bitter rantings by a sometimes-analytical fanboy who loves the Washington Nationals, even though you probably can't tell 3/4 of the time.
