The latest Phil Rogers column is just poppin' with rumors. That second "p" isn't a typo. Shame on you.
Of course, any Giants-related rumor is an awful rumor at this point. For example:
The article also mentions that Nick Johnson is healthy again, which, for Johnson, means that only 810 of his 850 muscles are currently pulled. Johnson is owed $11M for the next two years, or $500,000 per at-bat. As such, the Nationals shouldn't expect much in return. His last active season, though, was a monster: .290/.428/.520 in a pitcher's park. He even reached 500 at-bats.
No time for even my half-assed analysis today, so I'll just let these points dangle in an Open God No Not Crede Thread and an Open Hmmm Maybe for the Right Price Nick Johnson Thread.
