The Washington Nationals had yet another Corner OF go down to injury yesterday. First Wily Mo Pena and now Elijah Dukes. Do they now become a "trade partner" for the Cubs? They also need young pitching and other building blocks for the future.
What about Murton, Marshall and Gallagher to the Nationals for Cordero and Lopez.
It gives the Nationals temporary fill-in for the injured corner OF's and two young pitchers to help stock the rotation and the team. It gives the Cubs a bona fide, top of the line, young stud closer and a young SS with good experience and some upside.
