Obviously they'd never trade him to anyone in the division but assuming they were open to that who would you be willing to send to Miami for Giancarlo?

Morse, Moore, Espinosa and a high prospect.

Of course if you brought him here you've locked Harper into CF long-term with no true lead-off batter in the line-up...

I still say Werth is all the leadoff man we need. With a lifetime OBP like has and the fact we're overloaded with middle of the order guys, he should be the leadoff guy.

As for the trade, I would stay pat and not trade for anybody. We're good enough as is to win it all.

Agree 110%.

98 wins, best record in baseball, with many games lost to injury. I sure wouldn't be tinkering with much.

Ray- Great minds or wishful thinking? I thought those exact names when I saw the thread before I read your post! Throw in Edwin? :-)

Gio Gonzalez cost 4 leading prospects/close to MLB ready players. Expect Stanton would cost *at least* the same, so something like Moore, Goodwin, Purke & Leon would be costly but worth it. The Nationals outfield (Werth-Harper-Stanton) would be set for a long, long time.

"Throw in Edwin?"
Can't throw him in, he's a free agent. But yes I would throw in an extra pitcher. Lannan if he's still under control (I can't keep track of his status).

Yes, Lannan is still under control, which is why he's expected to be non-tendered since he's due to make another $5m in 2013.

I doubt Loria would trade Stanton to Washington. But there is such a thing as a three team trade. You'd just need to collude with that third team so he doesn't know beforehand. Coming from D.C. that should come naturally.

I don't know that a GM would want to tick off another team's GM like that.

3-team trades don't work like that. It usually involves Team A acquiring certain prospects from Team B to package with other players for Team C. So each team is actively involved in the process.

For example (purely hypothetical): Washington trades Morse to a Team B (that wants Morse) for 2-3 prospects (desired by Miami in this instance). Washington then packages those 2-3 prospects with 2-3 more prospects from the Nationals stable and trades them all for Stanton.

If Stanton is traded - and I believe Miami should trade him - I suspect that Nolasco will be part of the deal (a serviceable 5th starter for a year - another $$ dump by Miami - and part of the cost of acquiring a young monster in Stanton).
