Good News for Nats Fans

Look, Gary Majewski is a pretty good setup guy, and maybe Bill Bray and Ryan Wagner might be something, but unless these three turn into the Nasty Boys V2.0, the Reds just got hosed. Giving up two young regulars for relievers? Foolish, just foolish.

FRED ADDS: I'm going to miss Bray, who is a nice young lefty reliever, and Majewski, who looks like Jesus, but this is a classic "two quarters for a bunch of nickels" trade. Competent middle relievers are a lot easier to replace than patient power-hitting corner outfielders or young shortstops with pop and speed. Nats fans love to bash GM Jim Bowden, and some of it is deserved, but I have a feeling we're going to miss him when he's gone. He's not afraid to make bold deals.

Oh, and Ryan Wagner is coming our way, so if he becomes something, that's good for the Nats.

(FRINKLIN called in from work to ask ENSIE to post the following): Please excuse the horrible Ryan Wagner mistake. It was realized some time this morning in a haze on the early morning train in to Seattle.
