Dusty wishes too as he'd probably still have a job:



Dusty Baker won't return as Nats manager after another playoff disappointment

Thanks Andy, good stuff. Looks like we are only expected to get Brantley, the OF from Indians. I do like that if we got him for CF.

He's been hurt a lot recently... but not a bad flyer if he is healthy might be able to flip him in a bit.

I hope we go HARD after relievers like Reed and McGee. They make great trade chips.

Yep. A guy like Brantley knows he can play fulltime here in case it takes some time. Then we flip him to a team in playoff hunt, can't seem like a bad thing.

I like flipping relievers too. Those two are both good calls.

One other reliever I might like to take a big chance on  is Glen Perkins. See if he is healthy, give him time to get back up to snuff. They say he will retire or come back to Twins on a minor league deal, but I would love that LH arm if he got his health back. Like that guy who Rockies picked up from KC because he was hurt and had a helluva season last year.

Braves about to lose Kevin Maitan to FA along with other prospects as punishment for manipulating the international signing bonus system.

Signing him would be huge. not sure if we have the international dollars.
