Nats send Vidro to Seattle (provisionally)

As long as Jose Vidro waives his no-trade clause, Washington and Seattle are expected to conclude a deal that would send Vidro to Seattle in exchange for Chris Snelling and Emiliano Fruto.

The story finishes with this ominous line: "The trade means one thing for the Nationals: According to baseball officials, shortstop Felipe Lopez will be switched to second and Cristian Guzman will remain at shortstop."

Christian Guzman at 4 mil per year? Meh. Peanuts in today's dollars!

The only downside is that he sucks. But if you get past that, it's a great contract.

utterly horrible trade for the M's, they have no shot for next year anyway, why trade decent young players for fading expensive old once?

This is the stupidest trade ever. I'd cry over losing Snelling, since he's one of the only guys left on the M's roster with any personality, except I got it out of my system when that clean-shaven Ogasawara doppleganger abandoned the Fighters for the Giants.
