ESPN is reporting that The Washington Nationals Monday, agreed to a trade for left fielder Josh Willingham and lefty starter Scott Olsen of the Florida Marlins for a package of players.
The Nats traded away second baseman Emilio Bonifacio, who hit .243 in 49 games last season, and two minors leaguers in pitcher P.J. Dean and shortstop Jake Smolinski
Pretty interesting considering that the Nats had an outside shot at landing Holliday who was dealt to the A's earlier.
