Edwin Jackson has signed a one year deal with the Nationals for somewhere around 5 million dollars. The Nationals have allot of left over money from missing out on Albert Pujols, Prince Fielder and C.J Wilson. They have already added Gio Gonzales to the rotation and if Stephen Strasburg comes back healthy those 3 should combine for a nasty 1-2-3 punch at the front of the rotation. For the first time in a long time the Nationals appear ready to compete in the nations capital city.
The Washington Nationals made a splash on Friday by trading for former Athletics ace Gio Gonzales.The deal ended up with the A’s getting four prospects and the Nationals getting ace Gio Gonzales and reliever Robert Gilliam.In the end I suspect the deal should work out for both clubs.
