Washington Nationals keep slugger Adam Dunn, trade Guzman, Capps for prospects

August 2, 2010

Adam Dunn, one of the best home run hitters in the major leagues, will remain a Washington National.

The trade deadline has come and gone, and Adam Dunn will continue to hit home runs for the Washington Nationals, possibly even tonight against the Philadelphia Phillies at Nationals Park. The slugger, who was sought by several teams, will remain with the Nats until at least the end of the season.

The Nats had already traded infielder Cristian Guzman Friday and closer Matt Capps Thursday for prospects.

The New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox, Detroit Tigers, and Tampa Bay Devil Rays had reportedly been interested in Dunn, but the Nationals’ asking price was apparently too high.

Philadelphia Eagles would be crazy to get rid of Donovan McNabb

March 31, 2010

I cannot believe the Eagles are considering getting rid of Donovan McNabb and giving the QB job to Kevin Kolb.  Why would a team that is always on the verge of the Super Bowl give up a top 10 QB — maybe top 5 when he’s at his best — and start over.  First they get rid of Brian Westbrook and now maybe McNabb?  He led them to the playoffs last year and we’ve seen teams finish 10-6 and win the Super Bowl.

If the Eagles get rid of McNabb, I will root so hard against them.  It would be justice if McNabb went to the Vikings and won the Super Bowl.  I think the Redskins should go after him but the Eagles probably wouldn’t trade him within the division.

If they do trade McNabb, and right now the Raiders look like the leading contenders, they should start Michael Vick instead of Kolb.  Why hand the keys to someone who hasn’t played much at all?

Ultimately, maybe the Eagles will come to their senses and keep McNabb and trade Vick, who should have a chance to start somewhere.

But if they do trade McNabb, I will be rooting for the Eagles to fail.  As a Redskins fan I already do, but this time it will be even more intense.

Wizards trade Jamison, complete housecleaning

February 22, 2010

The Washington Wizards completed their team makeover Wednesday by trading two-time all-star Antawn Jamison to the Cleveland Cavaliers for center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, the rights to Slovenian forward Emir Preldzic and a first-round draft selection from Cleveland.

The Wizards also receive forward Al Thornton from the Los Angeles Clippers, while forward Drew Gooden, acquired last week from the Dallas Mavericks in a seven-player trade, goes from Washington to L.A. The Cavs also get point guard Sebastian Telfair from the Clippers.
