I would love to have him on the Fish, but the Nats would probably ask for more from us simply because we are in the same division.

 

He's coming off a 5.2 fWAR season, but is projected to regress pretty heavily into a 2.9 fWAR season. I'd still take him because I feel like his peripherals show that he's closer to a 3.5-4 win guy, which would look great in our rotation.

I always thought that whole not trading within the division is stupid.

 

It makes sense for a contending team. A bottom of the barrel team? Who cares...trade to the highest bidder. The Nationals are trying to return to the playoffs next year and would rather not see the pitcher they traded on the team they play 19 times. Maybe the impact is a bit larger from position players since they might actually play all 19 games, but a starter should still get 4-5 starts.

Well, let's say they would trade with the Marlins, what would they have to give up and could they put the pieces together to get it done?

"Hello, Mr. Nationals? Yes, we were wondering what you would want in exchange for Zimmerman?"

 

"Which one?"

 

"The pitching one, the one that made us look like shit at the end of last season."

 

"Ah, Jordan...let's start with Heaney and Yelich."

 

"..."

 

"Hello?"

"We're gonna hang on to those guys, but have you seen the beefcake on that Solano kid?"

Nats have made Zimmerman and Doug Fister available. Fister isn't quite as good as Zim, but he'd be a solid rotation piece and would cost a lot less. Zim costs $16.5m next year, then is a free agent in 2016. Fister will be last time arbitration eligible next year, coming off a $7.2m season. He'll also be a free agent in 2016.
