It’s been widely reported that the Nationals might make a run at free agent IB Mark Teixiera, but here’s a little something that Buster Olney threw out at the bottom of his latest column (Insider required):

Each offseason move impacts others that will follow, but with that in mind, here’s a guesstimate as to where the top free agents will land:

Sabathia: Yankees

Teixeira: Angels

Burnett: Yankees

Manny Ramirez: Nationals

Manny to the Nationals? I know this is just speculation on Olney’s part, but oh dear God please let it come to pass. Talk about a punishment fitting the crime. If Manny is destined to get a big contract, at least let him land somewhere where the pitching is thin and the smog is thick. I don’t want to see that traitor playing in October ever again.

  1. Traitor? I must have missed the story where Manny aided and abetted Al-Qaeda

  2. This will bring like, what, 50 more people int Nats Park next year? Ownership needs to get it together there. They’re starting to look like that guy in Miami, minus the competent FO.
