Not yet halfway through December, the Nationals have wrapped up their three most important objectives in improving their team in 2014.
Several reports this morning say that the Washington Nationals think they might be close to getting the left-handed reliever they're after sooner rather than later, though the latest word is that nothing is "imminent."
A trade of David Price would a?? quite possibly will - be the highlight deal of baseball's offseason, but today and in years to come, none of the game's iconic young stars should feel safe.
Mark Prior, the flamethrowing right-hander from University of San Diego High who once had the Chicago Cubs this close to the long-awaited World Series that still elides them, has decided to end what essentially was a seven-year comeback attempt from injuries and surgeries.
As far as the new managers go, the general consensus is Brad Ausmus, with the Tigers, and Bryan Price, with the Reds, walked into the best situations.

MLB Team Report - Washington Nationals - INSIDE PITCH Bolstering an already strong starting staff, the Washington Nationals acquired right-hander Doug Fister from the Detroit Tigers on Dec. 2. The Nationals sent infielder Steve Lombardozzi, left-handed pitcher Ian Krol and minor league lefty Robbie Ray to the Tigers.
Everything Doug Fister does, from 60 feet, 6 inches away, serves to deceive. His towering height makes you think power, but then he throws a fastball that may not get pulled over in some states.
With all these rumblings of the Mariners being prepared to offer Robinson Cano over $200 million and Jacoby Ellsbury getting $150 plus from the Yankees, I thought it was a good idea to take a look at the Nationals' payroll for 2014 and how it stacks up around Major League Baseball.
Doug Fister should fit right in with the Washington Nationals. Not only is he a quality starting pitcher - coming off a 14-9 season with the Detroit Tigers - but he is dripping in clubhouse character.
It would be pretty easy to assume that, after their acquisition of Doug Fister earlier this week, the Washington Nationals are probably finished in their search for starting pitching.
