Okay, you know the drill...
shitty team... small market... dump salary... trade for prospects...
first team up...
Washington: 11 wins
1st basemen: Nick Johnson - 30 yrs old - 3 yrs/16.5mil 2007-09, 5.5mil 2009
Josh Willingham - 30 years old - 1 yr./2.95mil
Johnson's the guy, and we all know how much Manny Acta loves Mets kiddies...
Another reason Washington may do this:
they have the 60th top prospect in A+ who is a 1Bman:
Born 7/2/1988 (20 years old)
Marrero was Washington's top pick in the 2006 draft, and rated a perfect 80 on the scouting power scale, which is tremendous in someone so young. He has a knack for missing some breaking balls by a mile, but he's still very young, so give him some time to learn a little discipline. To make up for his lack of speed, the Nats have converted the onetime OF to full time first-base status, which should also let him concentrate on hitting.
