Nationals on the move?

Although this is a Redskins blog, the Washington Nationals busted a move Thursday towards becoming a complete team – someday. They sent pitching talent to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for a starting infielder and a slugger. The pitchers help the Reds win their division, while Washington gets a nucleus of talent to build upon. That's the hope, anyway. Beyond that, I don’t follow baseball enough to comment. So, here are a few assessments from the blogosphere.
