A diary for Day 2 rumors and such.
The Washington Post this morning had more information on the rumored "shocking" trade that Jim Bowden mentioned yesterday and was posted in a diary here. The big name is Manny and the Nationals could be involved in the 3 way deal including the Giants not the Cubs. Felipe Lopez would be one of the players heading to Boston. Washington would get prospects/young players with Manny heading to SF. Noah Lowry was mentioned as one possibility for Washington. It wouldn't surprise me if Jon Rauch was also included since his value won't be higher than right now after his performance last year. In a separate note, the Nats are shopping Ryan Church so he could be included. Seems he has aggravated the organization for the second straight year.
