Nationals inquire on Greinke

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The most interesting team of the Winter Meetings so far?

There's no question. It's the Nationals.

The latest big name they've inquired on: Royals right-hander Zack Greinke. And while it doesn't seem likely that the sides will agree on a deal, the mere fact that the Nationals showed real interest is the latest indication that the last-place Nats want to be considered serious players.

The Blue Jays and Rangers remain the teams most involved on Greinke, according to sources familiar with the talks. There hasn't been much movement yet, perhaps because the Royals continue to demand a hefty price (four or five players, according to an official of one team that inquired) and perhaps in part because a decision by free-agent Cliff Lee could affect some teams' motivation to make a deal (the Rangers, and possibly the Yankees).

The Nationals have also shown some interest in Lee, and Mark Zuckerman of Nats Insider reported that general manager Mike Rizzo met with agent Darek Braunecker again on Tuesday. But officials familiar with the team's plans downplayed the chances of the Nats becoming serious contenders for Lee's services.

Greinke just turned 27, which makes him five years younger than Lee. The Royals have him under contract for two more years, so they don't need to move him this winter. But a favorable market, in which Lee is the only other premium starter available, makes a likely that Greinke will be dealt.

The Nationals made the first big signing of the Winter Meetings on Sunday, with their stunning seven-year, $126 million deal with Jayson Werth.

Actually, it's a triple negative.  This would translate to exactly what I thing the idiot was trying to say.  The bolding was a nice touch.  It's important that people don't miss stupidity like this.

So you gotta stop changing people's comments around.
Becuase there is a word for that. Its called Plagerizm

No, it's called misquoting somebody and it isn't plagiarism (spelled correctly).
Then again, Plagerizm could be a new word that means "arguing about English."

You might try sticking to baseball comments.

Your ... you meant you're unless it's yours. If not, it's YOU ARE. (contraction.)

If he isn't going nowhere, then he's going somewhere.
