A Little More on the Trade

In case you missed it, here's Marc Carig's story about the news conference introducing Willingham and Olsen.

And there's a few viewpoints from the Miami side:

The deal gives the Marlins a crowded infield, according to the Miami Herald's Clark Spencer.

Spencer also points out that the Marlins like to deal within their division.

Awesome! He'll be our most frequent starter!

So if I wake up with a blue tongue or a gorilla mask I'll know who to come after!

"Fox reports that the Nats have offered $200 million for 10 years for Tex and are frontrunners to sign him. Just maybe."

I've been looking for anything in print on this and have come up short. Can someone please post a link?

I looked around yesterday too. Best I could tell this was the original source of the post by Ray:

There can't be an official offer to Tex from anyone other than LAA until 12:00 AM Friday.

Thanks for the links, but I was specifically looking for the one where Rosenthal says the Nats offered Tex $200 million. It was mentioned several times over the past few threads, but didn't make sense for several reasons:
1. Only the Angels can make offers to him now;
2. No one else is reporting it;
3. It betrays the Lerner law of physics.

Because it was so ludicrous, I took a special interest in finding this so-called claim.

It's his exoskeleton, Bob.

We can't make official offers yet, but we can informally talk with the player's agent.

It's because I'm fueled by vengeance, and reinforced with space-age technology.

He'll certainly spend more time with the team than Harlan.
