Sporting News has the Nats trading pitcher Zach Day and minor league outfielder JJ Davis to the Rockies for outfielder Preston Wilson.
I am not amused. Wilson's current stats: .258 average, .322 OBP, 14 homers, 45 RBI. And that's in the rarified air of Coors Field. You don't trade young pitching for a career .265 hitter who averages less than 20 homeruns a year.
Jim Bowden's trades falls into two categories: the Jose Guillens, and the Alex Escobars. I predict this will be an Alex Escobar trade. Maybe Zach Day has a rare disease that will cause his pitching arm to fall off at the elbow.
