Wow, for the first time ever the Nats actually have an MLB quality rotation. It's going to take some time to adjust to this new reality. :)

Rizzo gave up four top 10 prospects, easily trumping the package the Jays got for Halladay, for a Jonathan Sanchez clone who is a #3 starter at best. What a terrible terrible trade.

But - Halladay was a pending FA, Gonzo under team control for 4 more years. It matters. I think, in today's market, the trade is a push. Good for both. We won't know who "wins" for 3-4 more years.

They had an MLB-quality rotation last year. They have an NL East-quality rotation now. Big step up. Oh, and 4 years, NOT $55MM.
