But Mike Rizzo is apparently interested in 85 year old Mike Cameron. Well, he probably hit leadoff at some point since his rookie year in 1995. Matt Stairs is also available. Maybe Stairs, Cameron, and Bernadina can form a CF platoon? Oh, and Rizzo did pull off that Balester-for-Perry blockbuster with the Tigers. So there's that.
Remember the Winter of 2010/2011, when Mike Rizzo declared his grand vision for Phase Two of the Washington Nationals, then saw his best laid plans go up in smoke after trying and failing to sign or trade for just about every possible top starting pitcher available? Minus Werth, it all feels so eerily similar.
At the very least, the Nats are in pretty good shape even if Rizzo ultimately fails to deliver (again) this offseason. But sheesh. *shrug* In Rizzo we trust?
